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. Any ideas?

Looks Good to me..Are you using the stock HSF that came with the 2500K? At any rate it would only make adifference if you were overclocking your CPU or running it at load(Prime 95).

Yeah I'm using stock. I do not plan on overclocking until I get a better cooler. However, why does my system run at 1.6 ghz for some reason. Is this normal or should I fix this? I mostly play games:

What you are seeing in the normal 'throttling back' that the CPU does when not running at load. If you leave CPU-Z up while running Prime-95 you should see that the core speed will increase because the multiplier will increase.

Ahh, you are absolutely right. Thanks.

CPU temps go up to 68 degrees max with prime95 on with voltage at 1.14 V , is that normal?

That temp is within the acceptable range.
