Just chuck the CPU in a static proof bag and don't knock it around.

Hi Bryce

Why not have a look at some of the online suppliers for the board - one of them is bound to have a listing of package contents

You know what I totally forgot to check on my PC :(

I totally forgot to unplug the CMOS battery to see if that was it. I feel stupid now because someone recommended to do that . Anyone think it would help even the slightest bit? I've gotta tear the rig down to pack the board up so I guess I'll try that to. Resetting the CMOS battery would erase all my OCing to wouldn't it as I don't remember what I had set the values to lols, but I guess that's fixable with this forum.

God, I'm gonna hate if it was because of my 3.8ghz OC

Reset my CMOS Battery and all is well!

I reset the CMOS and all is well, but now my computer is SUPER SUPER SUPER slow and I lost my overclock. Now, could someone good with overclocking help me get my OC back . I forgot what values I had set it at and it was stable at that point to.

I want my 3.8ghz back

Nope . I just ordered another heatsink though and some Artic Silver thermal paste so it'll be here in a few days XD. Now, I need to remember what I had set my stable OC at before

It was actually Win7 that screwed me over not the overclock. I reset the CMOS and it was so incredibly slow it wasn't funny . Now, anyone care to help me OC again, I want at least 3.8ghz like before

Top man, glad it's working. It may have just been needing the CMOS resetting but at least you now have you rig running
