Thanks for the cooler suggestions. I'm definitely going to get an aftermarket heatsink when I attempt to unlock it. I just don't know much about quality heatsinks yet so I need the suggestions
Well, the one I got with my 555 was a piece of $@#!. I bought an N520 (push/pull dual 92mm fan; great quality) at cost from a store nearby but I have yet to use it because i RMA'd my 6850 and 650w PSU the day i put it in (you have a 650w as well D: ). Purchased a 6950 2GB and a 750w PSU earlier today.

By the way, you're going to like the case. I got it as a Combo with something so it was $10 or $20 off I also noticed you have no ram, get the 4GB G.Skill RipJaws for $50. I unlocked them from 1333 to 1600mhz just by increasing the multiplier through ACC.

I'm hoping the Hyper N520 will fit on my board (read about some people having issues with RAM slots)
You don't think the 650w is enough? I thought it would be plenty

New question

My Asus board's manual says: "When overclocking, some AMD CPUs may not support DDR3 1600 or higher frequency DIMMs."
I know this board is a 1333, but it goes up to 2000 OC. Would I be getting into trouble buying 1600 speed?

I can't believe I can only power one case fan on this board. What a jip. Now I gotta buy Y connectors

I am assuming that the hardware listed in your sig is the hardware we are discussing. If so, then I myself have the m4a88td-v evo mobo and the cooler master hyper n520 cpu cooler and am as happy as can be. my cpu sits at about 27C idle and maxes out at 46C under full load with ambient temp sitting at about 23C. Only think is you will have to take the stock cooler mounting hardware off the mobo to be able to install the n520. It's literally taking out 4 screws it all comes off.

drop me a pm if you have any other questions man.

I got it running! All 4 cores are going strong. Lucky me. And daaamn this thing is fast compared to my Intel Pentium D 2.8 lol. As soon as I throw a real video card in it will be a beast

Using Windows Server 2008 R2 has turned out to be a pain, as the Asus motherboard's Support DVD doesn't work on this version of Windows. But nonetheless, it's running. And the only alternative is 32 bit Vista. No thanks on that. But yeah. Build is running so woot

good to hear its all running well for you! As for the support dvd, unless you want the special utilities asus give you, you can download all of the drivers for the motherboard off the asus website. Thats what I did....didn't even take the support dvd out of its little paper slip.

Yeah I got some things off their site. But a lot of it, like Express Gate and some drivers, aren't compatible with Server 2008 R2 unfortunately. But not a big deal I guess
