I just bought a new RT.X100 and put it into the system last night. After installing all the drivers and plug-ins, the system switched off, of its own accord. Every time I switch the computer on, Windows loads up and stays on for a minute or two and then switches itself off.
So I've taken out the RT.X100, but left all the drivers and plug-ins installed, and the computer hasn't switched off.
I have now realised how stupid I was not to check in advance whether the RT.X100 is compatible with my motherboard. It is the ECS KV2 Extreme.
I was intending to replace the motherboard with a better model anyway, as I want to have more RAM and the PCI Parhelia and so on. To this end, I have just ordered the AMD FX-57 processor.
The problem is, the FX-57 is socket 939, and I've just looked at the list of motherboards that have been validated for use with the RT.X100, and none of them are socket 939!
So my question is, what should I do? Any advice here would be appreciated. I really want to build the best, fastest and most stable system I can, and thanks to a recent windfall, money isn't much of an issue. So how should I proceed?
