#1: Will all my video card drivers, programs, files, and basically everything i have on my HDD work fine when switching motherboards? will i need to clean out some old drivers and replace them? Any input on what changes is appreciated.
#2: Any processor removing/reinstalling tips and tricks? i have never taken a processor out of a mobo before, nor re-installed one. I have removed thermal paste with rubbing alcohol and re-applied, and installed a heatsink. I have a feeling the h100 will be harder to install, but my worry right now is bending a pin or something of the like on the processor.
#3 As for the RAM, i have 4x2 GB sticks of ddr3 RAM, would it be fine for this mobo? or should i just get 2x4 GB Dominator RAM? i'm going to be (hopefully) OCing the processor to around 3.6 Ghz, and my current RAM is a little iffy.
other than that, any tips on installing motherboards would be awesome. I'm not as hardware literate as i'd like to be.
I look forward to any help!
