    As far as the ProcDump "hack", I think Raymond Chen has a phrase for it:

    "It rather involved being on the other side of this airtight hatchway"

    thanks for answering.

    I never heard about roswill. I only use "Enermax" or "be quiet!". You don't need the fastest RAM. The difference is really small until you use the integrated GPU.

    I hope you get the C2 version of the board. the first revision has USB 3.0 issues when using resume.

    Which SSDs do you use? Hopefully not from OCZ.

    MSI/msix(message signal interrupt)
    Ms suggest 1interrupt per CPU for each whatchemacllit we have using it!what ms define as a CPU?is it one socket whatever the number of core?or like I think each physical core is considered a CPu.second question.why zero hardware set the number of interrupt ?like me:I use a i5 2500k,so everything using MSI should default to 4 .why is it not set?too much work?ms give a example of 16 decimal(hex value)the hex value that is by itself ?do I put this to the number of core I have ?messagenumberlimit do I write again the value 4 decimal (converted to hex)how come this isn't done by hardware maker?lastly?will surface 2 MSI /msix various hardware part needing it be set at the optimal value as recommended by ms ?(1 per CPU)this would mean surface MSI need to be set at 4?

    Hey Larry,

    I'm posting from a machine that was installed with Windows Vista RTM and has been service packed and upgraded all the way to Windows 8.1.

    So, man-up and go ahead and upgrade your Windows 7 system to Windows 8.1.

    -Paulo
