  1. It all looks good. Just to double check, you do know that's only a DVD reader right? A burner wouldn't cost much more.

    Oh wow thanks for the tip I didn't know that lol.

    Thanks alot!
  3. Everything looks good to me.
  4. Ok, thanks a lot for the quick replies!
  5. That player/burner is great. I may even add that one to my build if they have it here in the U.S.
  6. All that matter for the optical is that you get the cheapest SATA one you can find. That one meets the criteria...

    @darkside: They do. It's $26 I think.
  7. Thanks Admiral...I just added it to my new build. Lots of good reviews on it.
  8. Bit of luck you can unlock that 4th core as well as clocking it dude, Worked for me on my 435, now its a phenom x4 B35 running at 3.2Ghz smooth as you like
    Good luck and enjoy the build

    I have a few questions about the unlock...Will it void my warranty? Where can you learn how to do this? It would be greatly appreciated because I have never heard of this concept of 'unlocking' before.
  10. At their heart, triple core CPUs are quad cores that have been made stable by "locking" or disabling one core. If you're lucky, when you overclock, you can re-open that core (hence unlocking). It is more likely to make the system unstable than just regular overclocking.

    Technically, it could void the warranty, but I don't believe AMD cares too much. You can learn to do it in the Overclocking section of the forum.

  15. You might think about a different cpu this is a oem but if your going to over clock i think this is the better way to go. http://www.newegg.com/Product/NewProduct.aspx?Item=N82E16819103652
