Thank you for the wonderful suggestions on the components of my rig.
I have one issue/problem involving my cpu fan and case fans and im not sure the best way of setting up my cpu fan.
my CPU fan is a Hyper 212 plus. motherboard is p6x58D premium
heres what i got (pics)
ideally i want the cpu to pull in Cool air and my exhaust fans to get rid of hot air, to do that i think i'd want the cpu fan facing down on my vid card because thats where the cooler air is going to be.....if i face it up it will be pulling the hot air at the top of the case and fighting my other fan...
Suggestions? or am i able to turn it side ways and face it towards my exhaust fan? this is my first intel system, and i thought you could only have the heatsink facing up or down, if i can turn it sideways please let meknow.
used Hyper 212 plus CM cooler, 1080P 32" HDTV is my display on my HD5850 card. i still need to install the other ram modules, whats the best way to go about that?
Well it might be in your best interest to run memtest86+ for a few passes before you stick the extra RAM in, i would, but that is me lol. Takes a few hours to do a few passes, so depends if you want to wait or not. but generally if you power everything down, (Flip the switch on the PSU ) touch the PSU, then put the ram in you will be fine. Touching the PSU first makes sure you are grounded. then on boot go into bios and set the ram to the correct timings.
ok im in bios no idea how to set this up, there sso much info and they all say auto.
its supposed to be 7-8-7-20
DRAM Case# Latency [7?]
DRAM RAS# to CAS# Delay [8?]

DRAM RAS# ACT Time
DRAM REF Cycle Time
DRAM Write Recovery Time

this is under AI Tweaker =/ thanks for the help in advance.
