Well it ended up indeed being a bad motherboard so after getting a replacement I'm up and running but still in the process of installing software.

I have 8GB of RAM installed and since it is so cheap now I was thinking of adding another 8GB (2x4) if you don't think my cooler is a problem. I originally installed the two 4GB sticks in the slots furthest away from my Cooler Master EVO and there is plenty of room but to add two more sticks the stick closest to the cooler fan it will be up against it... I actually have it in that slot now just to try out the location. It fits fine just up against and touching the cooler fan is this a problem?

My nephew who was helping me with the build loaded everything on the ASRock motherboard disk when I wasn't around so now I'm in the process of uninstalling things I don't want like Norton, etc... since all the various ASRock Utilities were installed are there some that I might want to uninstall?
