He's got some Mushkin RAM. 2 512 sticks, Green series. No heatspreaders. There wasn't a whole lot of information I could find. Pretty sure they're dual channel and run @ 3-4-4-8 DDR400. I'm planning on using some dividers. Another thing, I wasn't the one who bought it. He is new to the whole building computers thing and asked for my help. He knew that was a good board, but didn't know what he was getting himself into, thats why I'm helping him. Also, I've looked on DFI-street but haven't been able to send a lot of time there. Should I create an account there and start posting about which BIOS is best for this situation or can someone recomend me one to get going. Also, provide a link for a page containing the BIOS. We haven't set up the rig, only powered it on for a few seconds to check fan orientations. What method is best for flashing BIOS? I've seen how to flash to DFI's official BIOS's and am confident in my ability to do that. However, I've never used ISO's before and don't want to mess around with an ISO flash until I've had some experience in that area. Any FAQ's or links would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
