Intel Ships Out Westmere to Partners
 
Intel has moved up the release date of Westmere, its next-generation microprocessor and has already shipped out samples to key partners. Designed for both laptops and desktops, the desktop version of the chip has been named Clarkdale while the laptop model is called Arrandale.
 
Westmere is designed on similar lines to Intel’s Nehalem processor but comes with a 32nm core compared to Nehalem’s 45nm one. The new chip comprises of two cores with hyperthreading and has integrated graphics alongside the CPU.
 
Intel CEO Paul Otellini announced the shipping of the samples during an earnings conference call and informed that around 30 laptop and desktop PC manufacturers have already received the chips for testing. This means Westmere will become available later this year. The early release of Westmere also opens up the possibility of the company releasing Calpella, Centrino 3 – the new version of the Centrino platform about three months earlier than the expected date.

If that was to me, no need for cash, all part of the service :p

right, this makes me thing it was shorting on the case somehow, extra standoff somewhere probably? Or when you set it up again you have plugged a cable in that wasnt in before and you didn't notice?

Double check the standoff position, see if they line up, make sure you don't screw the screws into them too tight, and then test it in the case

glad it worked for you,have just spent the last 10 mins trying to find your manual on asus's site,lol,and I agree with Peter it sounds like a shorting issue,I had similar problems when I had the same board,I had to be very careful with how tightly I screwed it into the standoffs

Glad you got it sorted.

@ Nepas: Every other Board I've worked with, the 4Pin goes on the left, but this Asus is different, sorry! :D

Great to hear it works now :) Indeed sounds like a standoff shorting something.

No need for cash to anyone I think, we're not here for the money. If you insist, send a PM to whoever you want to reward.
