Thank you so much for the very quick response. Also another question that I had is that ever since I put the E2160 CPU in this motherboard I had the shop install an aftermarket Thermaltake CPU heatsink and fan on top of the E2160 processor. Can I just use this same fan or will I have to get a new one? Also as far as thermal paste goes, do I need to buy thermal paste since I am swapping out the E2160 for the E8500? Thanks so much
i'm also thinking about upgrading from the 2160 to the 8500, from what i've been told you also have to make sure the bios is on the latest update to handle the faster clock speed.
