    Help for a n00b

    I think he'll be alright with it. It's a setback but it's better than frying the motherboard. Thanks for the help guys :nod:

    Help for a n00b

    OK. I'm convinced about the power supply. I'm bummed about it, but on the bright side the OCZ you're reccommending is cheaper then the one we bought. So I can just tell my dad it's cheaper and he won't mind as much. Hopefully.

    Help for a n00b

    I wish I'd known this before I ordered it. Also, would 520w be enough? I saw the motherboard requires at least a 480w so giving myself 40w of headroom doesn't seem like much. Or does the 480w figure take into account extra devices such as cards and drives? Also, what exactly might happen with it? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16817153021 <<< That's the exact item if that helps.

    Help for a n00b

    Thanks for your help. Unfortunately I already ordered the TT power supply, and I've put my dad through a lot (it's kind of his money - Christmas gift) as it is. If I was dealing with my own money I'd be a little more picky and just go for it, but if it's possible I'd rather not put my dad through it. How paramount would you say the problem is? Oh, and also, I'm General Septem - he's Steelballzz.

    NF4 LanParty - initial build w/pictures

    I see, so I'm OK with what I've got then. I'm not planning to OC anytime in the near future, and it'd be a real pain to get AS5 since I don't drive or have a credit card (unless they sell it at RadioShack wich I highly doubt), so I think for now I'll use what they supplied for the time being. Thanks.

    My Athlon 64 says the heat sink it comes with already has thermal interface on it. Do I still need the AS5?

    Thanks a lot =D I'll check that link, and if I run into any problems I'll let you guys know. My board isn't actually here yet but I just wanted to be sure about what I was doing before I go and mess up a lot of money's worth of parts.
