New build help.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I finished my new i5 2500k, 8 gig corsair xms3, 64 gb crucial m4 ssd, 320gb wd, asus p8z68 v gen3, and 560 ti build and have a few questions. first off i installed a coolmaster hyoer 212 evo and it seems to be working just great but even though i tightened it down very well it still seems to be able to turn a little bit in both ways. i have no idea if this is ok or what so please let me know on that one. also i want to know how i can make all my downloads to go to my 320 gb wd drive instead of my ssd which is used for my operating system. and i also want to test out all my parts to see if everything is working fine and then i want to overclock my system to around 4.5ghz. let me know if you guys can help me outttt.

to see if your system is stable after overclcoking, run prime95 for several hours. and monitor your cpu core temperatures with Realtemp.
to save all your downloads on your 320gb drive i think you just set the save location to that drive. as for the hyper 212 evo, i have the same problem with the hyper 212+. it turns a little, but it doesnt seem to be a big problem. just make sure its tight
