Help (after building new pc) Tags: New Build Overclocking Systems Last response: November 21, 2012 2:44 PM in Systems Share np- November 21, 2012 1:28:45 PM I just built this PC, does everything look fine? I didn't overclock anything yet. Also, I have this problem where my PSU (Corsair 500 Watt)'s motherboard 24 pin won't click in, it'll power the mobo but the thing just slides out if I move my pc.

Thanks. CPU temps go up to 68 degrees max with prime95 on with voltage at 1.14 V , is that normal? clarkjd November 21, 2012 2:44:08 PM np- said:Ahh, you are absolutely right. Thanks.
