Just keep your kuma @ 3.0ghz, you wont need an aftermarket cooler if you stay @ 3.0ghz.

Wtf, dude static is really a myth, holysky's comp shut off while he was plugging a fan in while his com was on, which is stupid.

Just touch the metal of your case every few minutes while your building

OK

when you first start up pop the OS disk in and load that all up

then go to Nvidia.com and download your Nvidia drivers for your card

Virus i recommend AVG free 8.5 or Avast

Steam lol

you might want to flash your bios also
