Anyways, is changing out a motherboard complicated, and how do I figure out which is compatible with my current rig?
changing out a motherboard isn't technically hard, but you have to disconnect everything
, which includes cleaning off old and reapplying new thermal paste and reseating your cpu, heatsink and fan...
it's good to download a manual and go over it a little bit beforehand, and make sure all the jumpers on the motherboard are set correctly...
my upgrade was a breeze (aside from a brief moment of stupidity on my part)...
