ok so i have finally got my new system up and running. i came across 3 problems during the build.
Problem 1: the cpu cooler backplate was an absolute nightmare to screw into place. took me and a friend to help to apply enough downward force to screw in place
Problem 2: i had to re-install my OS in order to install the mobo drivers as they didn't like the old embedded driver
Problem 3: After re-installing my whole system again i had a sudden brainwave. would my current OS vista 64 (OEM) that i have just installed activate now that i have a new system? of course in wouldn't as it is stating already used. now i have 3 days to get a new OS before i can't use this system
On the plus side my cpu temps that i expected to be high, due to the cooler installation errors i had, were in fact suprising low at 60, 62, 62, 53 during occt linpack test. the wierd thing is core 4 is always around 8-10c cooler than my hottest core. Unable to upload pics just yet as i have yet to find the cable for my camera which i have now ordered
