Here is the story:
MemOK made it boot successfully into BIOS, hooray! I believe the cause was that I didn't enable the XMP for the OC. so I enabled it, and the board got the profile exactly right (2133, 1.5v), leveled up to 4.6G. Restart, I saw the windows logo!

And then it crashed with a blue screen that I couldn't catch at all before rebooting automatically. F5->F8 to disable the auto restart, now I got the error code. Googled a little bit, changed the SATA setting to IDE and went in safe mode, yes! Changed the registry to enable the ACHI drivers, reboot, changed SATA to ACHI. I got in my windows. Installed the drivers from the CD, both monitors worked.

Finally relieved and I thought I was done. Another BSOD with 0x124 after a few minutes of use. I guess it should be driver related issues. Time for sleep. But at least I got to a point where I can backup all bookmarks/Firefox cache/outlook etc. before installing the 64bit win7. Hope my story can help guys with similar problems.

I haven't touched my build for 5 years, i'm getting the fun again.
Yep, those blue screens are almost certainly (99% likely) due to the fact that you haven't formatted.

Honestly...there is absolutely no point in upgrading your system if you don't format. Performance and stability will go DOWN, not up, despite the new hardware.

Mine went up, but I know it will go even further when I get my new SSD and HDD with a fresh copy of Windows 7 on it.

Love how you slipped a bottle of brew in there. Once you get everything built, mind letting me know how much extra space you have between the d14 and the side panel? I'm looking to put one on my 930 in my R3 and getting rid of the Eco.

For sure m8! But i'm far too tired now, it's short after midnight overhere and so the building is going to start tomorrow late afternoon.
Honestly i was shocked about the size of the Noctua's package and i'm now getting a bit unsure if the heatsink will really fit into the case...

P.S.: The bottle of brew should only be a kind of meter for the box sizes.
(P.P.S.: Besides some beer is important to be relaxed enough at hobby computing. )

Does anyone else see two little white lines at the top of the screen when attempting to enter the UEFI bios? Newegg packaged mine very poorly, I'm thinking something is damaged.

So I should reformat everything before upgrading windows (32 to 64)? Does this apply to a Boot Drive and a main (program files) drive?

Couple of pics of my gene-z. I got it running my 2600k at 4.9ghz stable at the moment. I may push for 5ghz in the coming weeks. Probably gonna change the tubing to white and get some white leds. Will match the case better
