  1. If I install a temperature monitoring software, will it display the same temperature as the one in the BIOS? Because it must be using the same "thermometer" as the motherboard. Hope this isn't a dumb question Thanks.
  2. I've recently installed a Core i5 2500 and was trying to figure out if I did everything right. So I turn on the PC and go directly to the BIOS (motherboard is a Gigabyte P67A-UD3). Under the "PC health status" tab, I can see the temperature of the CPU slowly and steadily rising to 59 ºC (room temperature ~ 30 ºC). Is this acceptable? Maybe I installed the cooler incorrectly? PS: This processor apparently comes with a pre-applied thermal paste, it didn't come separately. Thanks.
  3. Which rail are the modular cables on, though? The 30A or 35A? Thx, I`ll go with your setup advice.
  4. Hi guys. It`s the first time I`m building a PC all by myself. I have a bit of experience in upgrading individual components, so I have noob questions I want to install an MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin FrozrII OC My PSU is a Seventeam 850Z Modular Now, I believe this VGA requires two 6 pin PCI-E connectors Questions: The PSU has 2 hard-wired PCI-E cables, each one with a 6pin and a 2pin connector . It also has 2 extra PCI-E cables (6+2 as well) that could be inserted into the modular part of the PSU. Now, how does that work? The PSU has only two 12V rails. So, basically, what are the modular cables for? And also, should I plug in the 2 hard-wired PCI-E cables into the VGA? Last question: how do i know which one is the 30A (v1) and which one is the 35A(v2)? There seem to be 4 PCI-E cables Thanks a lot for your help!
