Jonathan, you will be pleased to know that my RMA was approved and I sent my MB in today. I am also going to purchase a corsair 650w PSU. It was not hard taking it out, I just hope I can put it back together. I have never done this before so it is a challenge. I like challenges though. I may be calling on you or someone for help.

BTW: the would not let me give you a rep. But I tried. I owe you one.

Great, good job. Don't hesitate to post at all, we are here to help.

A little tip: use an anti-static strap when installing the board, or at least touch a metal part of the case frequently to avoid zapping the motherboard.

Jonathan, I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help. Maybe in a couple of weeks I will be writing you on my fixed computer. I'll let you know how it goes. At this point it is almost like building a new computer.
Thanks again,
Steve

Jonathan, Just wanted you to know that I received my Motherboard yesterday. I also bought a Corsair 650HX, a coolermaster TX3, and another side fan for my case. I have the HS with 2 92mm fans in push/pull. It is together now and so far seems to be ok.

I also wanted you to know that I am rather proud of myself as this was my first build.

Thanks so much for all of your help, I don't know what I would have done without you. It is people like you that makes this forum the best on the net. Thanks very much.
Steve

Well glad to hear that; good job on the build! When I built my rig (still my main machine, check my system specs), I was fortunate that everything went smoothly. When problems arose, though, I can imagine you were wondering what you did wrong!

I never said nothing went wrong. I had to reseat the HSF at least 3 times. When I first started up I was at idle 60C, I am now idleing at 24. Wiring was a nightmare. There is absolutely no room to wire in my case! Glad I got a modular PSU. It's bad enough with that. Next case I buy- I'll be able to put my lawnchair in there so I can watch.
Thanks again. But I may have to brag some.For a month I had to listen to my wife tell me I didn't know what I was doing and that I was going to ruin a new computer. Secretly, I'm hoping she was wrong - time will tell.

I have a unique solution to the "cable management" problem:

Apologies for the poor quality, I used my webcam, in a dim room.

How did you get a picture of my case?

LOL, cabling never was my thing! I just keep an eye on my temperatures every now and then; if the chips are not overheating, I guess it's not a big problem.
