So, i did my first build, and it did not go especially well, I thought the turn marking on the heatsink (freezer 7 pro) was to lock, not release, so i think i screwed up the thermal paste, and now, the cpu fan turns off after the first bios screen. Also, when i try to boot with an ubuntu boot disk, it goes "uncompressing linux...ok booting the kernel" then it gets to mounting root partition and goes back to the previous screen and stays there, could this be an HD problem, do i need to format it first? (seagate 7200.10 320GB)
other than that i assume(hope) it is working, and i am going to install windows later
but there have been a particular ammount of problems with core 2 duo temp reading apps, i believe this is due to the ammount of digital thermometers on the chip (4 if im correct) compared to other dual cores. i hink im right someone correct me... :?
