Always love to hear from Mr. Montalban

Pretty cool stuff. I'd never think to do so much research on a mobo, but it's good to know that it's out there. I listened to this one at work, and it helped me ignore some pretty annoying customers. Thanks Claudio.

P.S. I'm thinking of making my own PC case out of fine Corinthian leather. Interested in Beta testing it for me? It's almost flame retardant.

LOL!

Hahaha, yeah I'll beta test it for you, but it has to be FINE Corinthian leather, otherwise I'm out. :-p

Glad you're enjoying the series. I have to stress, however, that it's the methodology that's important in this series, not so much the hardware I chose. I'll recap why this is in the next episode.
