Alright tested rig! functional. Quick question - MSI 65GDGaming Z87

- Tested rig works
Don't have case,dvd,heatsink till tomorrow (using stock cpu fan with ic7)

I'm removing the thermal paste tomorrow to replace fan, I have IC7, AS5, AS Ceramique 2. Should I give AS5/C2 a try?

Main question: Should I be downloading (via usb install) BIOS, Driver, Utilitys before I install windows 8 OEM tomorrow?

    Yes that what I do. I update the bios before I install the os. Also if you can on a hirem or boot disk use a tool to read your hard drive and Ssd smart info. Look to see that both have the newest firmware on them and there no errors in the smart logs.

    Alright will do, have a samsung 840pro & seagate barracuda but unless you advise otherwise I'm going to do it when I get my case and hook them into it before connecting them to mobo.
