I have an Acer AL2216W monitor as well as a LG 45(or so)" plasma TV I plan to use.
The build was relatively painless, except I couldn't find the modular cable to molex plug for my case fans until a few hour after
It has been running nonstop for around 36hours.
3dmark - 8459
5.9 windows index (guess I need an ssd)
ran prime95 for 6 hours
cpu temp 31C idle 45C arma2 demo
How do I know if this thing is running as it should?
What programs are recommended on a fresh install?
How should I go about Overclocking? I tried the gigabyte easytuner and I tried changing the multiplier through bios but cpuz still tells Im running at 3.4ghz
also 1 core runs ~43C while the other three running ~35C strange?
You will probably be OK like that but I would've thought the temperatures would be a little bit lower with that setup. If it was me, I'd drop the OC slightly just to get all temps under 70c to be safe.
