Hi all, i made myself a new pc but having temperature problems, i aint overclocked anything yet cos i dont know how to but im planning on overclocking soon, i am already getting cpu temp problems so need some cooling hardware, firstly is there any software that scans my pc and detects all the hardware or do i have to write everything down? thanks

You can just use Dxdiag. If your running windows, go to run, and type in dxdiag. This should show most of your hardware and tell you if there are any problems.

Since you just got an 8800, I would recommend making sure that your PSU can handle that card, it's pretty beefy and that is common mistake for first time builders to skimp on the PSU. Also make sure your HS/Fan are seated properly and that all your connectors are solid.

Hmm, you're HDD "should" be ok. Like I said, double check all your connections, make sure you CPU isn't overheating, and make sure the HS/Fan is seated properly.
