FinalWire, the leading developer of diagnostic and network management software for Windows based computers today released an update for their AIDA64 diagnostic, benchmarking and network management tool. AIDA64 Extreme Edition v1.20 is meant for home users while AIDA64 Business Edition v1.20 is a tool for small and medium scale enterprises.

The new version of AIDA64 is ready for Intel’s upcoming Sandy Bridge processors in addition to bringing some improvements for the current generation of Intel and AMD processors. It also supports the latest AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards. The software is also capable of handling GPU details for AMD Radeon HD 68xx and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 cards. FinalWire has created Windows 7 style icons for the software which makes it pretty easy to understand and operate. It also integrates support for USB 3.0 controllers and devices.

Some of the major bugs fixed in this version include issues with the Control Panel applet under Windows Vista and Window 7 as well as Memory Write benchmark on Intel Dunnington, Gulftown, and Westmere chips. FinalWire has also fixed the issue with the L3 cache bandwidth measurement on Intel Core i series processors.

In addition to these changes and improvements, FinalWire has also heeded to licensing change requests from users. So the new AIDA64 Extreme Edition can be used on up to 3 computers with a single personal license. The AIDA64 software is now also available online in the AIDA64 Online Store with 2 or 3 years support and maintenance period, which means, users can get the same software for a lower price and longer support.

altho they say you cant handle PCb's cos of the oil on your fingers but that rubbish.

I think you have PCBs mixed up with halogen lightbulbs.

nope deffo motherboards

this info was given to me when i was entering into buildin PC's

Hmm. Seems to be poocack to me.

I know on a Halogen lightbulb the oil from your hands can cause heat to concentrate in a specific area of the bulb causing it to blow a hole but on a PCB? Never heard anything like it.

I do know that in the slave factory assembly lines plants that they make this stuff in they wear Tyvek suits and latex gloves but yeah, in all my years I've never seen some one damage a board with hand oil. Static leccy yes.

Fail :D.

I agree with all of you, people think it's so easy to build a PC they don't bother reading any manuals etc. When I first built my PC I read about every manual just incase I killed something, wouldn't want an expensive piece of equipment dieing because you forgot to put a washer in.

Ive been building computers since I was about 12 years old and yes I admit that I have made my mistakes but learned in the process. This reminds me of this article,2601.html
I have recommended this article a few times for the beginners out there. I covers pretty much anything anyone would need to know.

Had a chance to work on this again today, found the cause of the issue. This heatsink isn't going to work so he will have to get a different one because of the bracket, but luckily it hasn't damaged the board. I took the motherboard out of the case and noticed two too many standoffs.

Luckily again, taking the board out and booting on a desk everything seems A-OK. Any recommendations on cheap heatsinks ($30 or so) that have a different mounting system? I might just try to get a few nylon washers to raise the bracket above the transistor, but then I'm afraid the screw for the heatsink won't be long enough.

I've seen loads of cases of that too dude. Oddly in some instances it doesn't cause complete failure, just BSODs and all sorts of errors. One of my apprentices at the PC shop brought his to work one day saying it had never been right.. Exactly the same issue. LOL.

$30 is pretty tight for a cooler. I had a look and

seems OK.

As does

But sub $40 there really isn't anything at all.

God aren't people lucky that components have so many safety features in them now days.
These days you short some thing out the PSU goes into a safe mode for a few mins, If you overclock to far your PC just restarts.

I remember the days of OCing and then you see smoke that was the end and time for a new PC. :lol:
When the PSU would short out and spark and you be to scared to go near the PC so you go unplug it from the wall instead.

Thanks for the recommendations ALX. I'll see what he wants to do. He probably still has the stock Intel HSF as well. I know he won't be overclocking at all as this is his brother's machine. I just hope he isn't discouraged from trying this again. Sure he made a couple dumb mistakes, but you can be sure he won't make the same ones again.
