Anyway, I got my new build up and running. It works fine with the triple core processor; I can unlock the 4th core, but I am unable to boot windows (computer keeps restarting). I tried adjusting voltage and what not (per some guides here and links to guides) but I think it's just a defective core. No biggie.
Ran the Prime95 Blend test for an hour, and the max temp there was 42 C.
Thanks for the help. Am running Dragons Age now, with no problems at all, with all settings maxed and a core temp of 32 C.
This site is really great for a person learning to build a new system.
