i dont understand.

when your ready to install your Operating System,

go in your BIOS, make sure to set the boot order to boot on USB 1st

save and exit BIOS

then insert your O/S install USB Pen Drive in one of your front usb ports

and walla!

O/S install will begin!

I found a video on youtube that you can overclock the apu to 3.6ghz. Has any one done this with your apu. But i cant find any thing much about the a8 3820 tho. If this apu can be overclocked to 3ghz that would be very good since it has a 65watts plus it will be close to the a8 3870k but with the 65 watts right

Is this true i have just read that if you use Parted Magic. It will erase physical serial number of SSD. Check this link

http://forums.partedmagic.com/viewtopic....8b43373df9

Since i have the same ssd i think i will stay away from this. Still no luck getting my parts. But the good thing is the apu is in uk now. Just waiting for it and ssd, usb wifi to come
