Okay, another question. Do I need a Front Side Bus fan?

No but I like to fill all openings in the case with fans and keep them flowing cool air from the front and side into case and out the top and rear of same. Over and above these fans I like a Antec spot fan for directing cool air towards the GPU and Ram. Even the South and North bridges like this extra air flow but I don't use a separate fan each. ASRock is one mobo manufacture which offers this upgrade and I think it holds interest.

Okay, ordered the last piece of the puzzle: Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDX945FBGIBOX
On sale @ Newegg ($10 0ff with promo code). Can't wait to put it all together!

Glad I got my mobo when I did. They're out of stock now AND the price went up $10.

That's my processor too. Very nice and easy to install. For the money you can't beat it. It's very fast.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
