one other thing make sure your clean installing windows if it detects an os already on your hdd previous drivers on the hdd will cause problems only other thing i can think of :-/

Yeah i did think about that - but surely it would still post - then i could format it in the BIOS by just popping in the Windows disk? would this not work?

Also. How did you update the BIOS? using a floppy or flash drive? and where did you get the update from?

Hi guys, first time post here.

I am writing to ask, as a novice to this stuff, is the Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme hard to install on the P5NE-SLI? I have an E6600@2.4ghz, and I'm looking to buy a HD4870 at the end of the month. Now I've been told that my CPU will bottleneck it, and I've been recommend the above CPU cooler. I've never overclocked, or installed anything like this, the most I've done is switch out the Ram and the Video Card, this machine was built by the shop.

Also, will a Corsair HX-520W run the following ok? or will I have to step up to the 620W?

P5NE-SLI
E6600 (hopefully overclocked to at least 3ghz)
HD4870
2GB Ram
Western Digital 320gb HDD

Cheers for any help at all guys =)

Yes the 120 should work. Not sure about the bottle necking though, if your wanting more performance i would suggest 2 more gb of ram. e6600's are excilent OCers though. I use a Corsair hx-520 on my comp with lots of CC and watercooling. Granted the 4870 uses more power than my 8800 gts but it is a sli approved power supply so you should not have an issue with it. If your planning on picking up another 4870 for crossfire i would go ahead and get the 620 just to be sure, i think there is not much of a price difference anyhow.
