Chill out. In general, we're pretty friendly here. You need to understand that newcomers are joining all the time and posting threads like this all the time. We try our best to be equally friendly to everyone. Many new members join, ask their technical question, and leave. It's like when a line of graduating seniors are walking by: you clap intensely at first, but it is hard to maintain that intensity. The seniors who come in last feel not as appreciated, but that's not true. It's just that the people clapping have been clapping for a while.

Onto matters at hand, that is a nice build. Antec builds reliable PSUs and Corsair have great memory! AMD makes some nice processors for their price, but I'm personally a fan of Intel. What are the specs on your OC?

Haven't oc since the first board. I ended up killing 4gb of ram out of 8gbs doing so.
I am running stock clock on everything.

I cant afford to blow another board at the moment.

Windows 7 settings.

Welcome to the forum.

Is that a bottle of lotion sitting next to your computer? We're not making any assumptions here...
