Well, finally got everything installed and updated. I'm gonna post some pics in the "show us your rig" thread. Post 832: https://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...ig-2-a-84.html

Had a few problems:
** Swapped the 1394 and USB header cables - fried a USB stick (the one I used to DL everything onto for this build), but thankfully nothing else.
** On initial startup, I noticed the CPU cooler fan, and none of the system/case fans were running. Had to remove the CMOS battery and let it reset.
** For the case fans, discovered you can't have them plugged into the NB Fan socket. Has to be the System Fan socket.
** I know it was discouraged using a magnetized screw driver, but it worked like a charm!
** I used both methods to spread the AS5: the sandwich baggy and the credit card. Card worked GREAT on the CPU cooler and the baggy worked good on the CPU.
I ended up only being able to mount the fan for the cooler one way (closer to the rear of the case, drawing air out).
** I did have a wrist strap, LED flashlight, and magnifying glass (never used it) for this build.

Overall, I am EXTREMELY happy with the build and how well it all came together. I did a lot of research, but got LOADS AND LOADS OF HELP from everyone who posted up in this thread. I CANNOT thank you all enough.

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.
