    How To: Build your own "Real" Airport Card

    You can attach all 3 its just that you have to remove one to fit the card in (clearance) and the shield won't sit nicely if your wires are coming out towards the bracket. This is why i routed them out the side as it means the shield goes on nicely and there is no rats nest of wiring. Both...

    2nd pci slot questions (p55m-ud4)

    Thanks for the replies. I haven't got the card yet as I ordered it on eBay from [where else but] China, and it usually takes 2-3 weeks. However I'll try a few setups and report back. I read that 95% of the time a GTX 260 is really not going to suffer under x8 configuration, so I may just move...

    P55M-UD4, Core i5, GTX 260, Safe mode only...

    Hey spike 1. Did you edit your dsdt or use tony's stock one for this mobo? 2. Also, did you try F7? I skipped the beta and am on F7 now, and audio not working... possibly due to (1)? Cheers

    Confusing RC5 message

    Thanks: I did load optimized defaults so there is something the BIOS has probably changed with respect to the dsdt as I am unable to boot to the desktop (blank screen after verbose mode is finished. Going to try pc efi 10.6 from scratch.
