Did you hit Ctrl + F1 while on the main screen in the BIOS, not in the screen where you would set the timings?

Hey Cuda. Press del to go to BIOS. At the first screen, hold on to Ctrl and then tap F1. The screen may blink really quickly. Then you should be able to see more options when you go to the options where you set the FSB and voltages.

I'm building my first computer, the specs are in my signature. I won't get the motherboard until next week, but.. I'm having some questions about what to do first, the HDD is brand new, do I need to format it before I try to install the operating system? And do I need to hook everything up and install the OS before I'll be able to get into the BIOS? When I get into the BIOS will that tell me that the motherboard is going to work properly? I'm pretty neurotic about that because I hear quite a bit about motherboards being DOA and want to test to see if I'll have to return it right away.

One more question about the power supply, if your power supply is too weak can you hook up two power supplies, plugging different pieces of the computer to each one?

Thank you very much for any assistance.

Disregard my previous post. It seems to have been the IDE cable that I was using that was slowing down my hdd.

You do not have to format the HD, you can get into the BIOS without a OS installed, and there will be one quick beep, when you turn on the mobo, to let you know it's working properly.

Yes, you can use two power supplies, but you will have to do some modding to get them to work iirc.


My 2 cents are that you get a better HD, better RAM, and a better graphics card.

Just installed G.Skill 1066 2x2gb. I'm running Vista 64-bit. With an E8400. I have it running stock as you can see. I set the timing to 5-5-5-15. The FSBRam seems like it's off. I runing at 2.0v which is perfect. Everytime I try to adjust the fsb it's obviously changing the ram speed. I'm having trouble linking it back to 1:1. Maybe it shouldn't be since it's 4gb. I looked through a few posts and there was not much to say. Thanks for the help.

I'd get better parts but I'm on a pretty strict budget. The HD used to be an external drive and the graphics card was given to me by an upgrading friend. I've heard that the speed of the RAM doesn't strongly affect gameplay/general computer speed, and bought this RAM when I was going to use a different mobo that had only 2 slots.. cheapest 4 gigs I could find, and it had generally positive reviews.
