Hi Idwer,

I'm sorry but I remove the motherboard from my PC (I make a hardware
upgrade, before this, I want to update BIOS because, from beginning,
the motherboard was a problem with processor).

If/when I find a chassis to mount and test (or when I have some time
to remount on my system), I will send you the results.

One more time, thank you for your great tool,
Emil "carco" Sirbu
