    Those fans I suggested are good cheap ones, if you want something better looks-wise they do make clear LED fans too for $7-9

    Then of course there is 1000 other fans to choose from too, I know it's tough to pick! I have a front and rear fan mix-match because I wanted to try two expensive fans out.

    I have a Gelid 120 UV Blue 120MM rear and a Aerocool Extreme Turbine 3000 up front, still undecided on which I like better

    I do use the above mentioned Yate Loons too, I have the high speed ones x 4 on my water cooling radiator just because they are cheap

    I am running a stock CPU cooler just in case u dont no so the best settings for this setup would be much appreciated :) I also checked over settings twice just to make sure I got everything right

    Thanks again guys and I will wait patiently for your reply.

    P.S
    What are the pro and cons if any of changing these settings and overclocking (when I get my new Cooler) will I lose my warranty over clocking?

    Just to add since last night iv noticed a few LED lights come on my board 1st one is above my CPU top light being orange and under that green then another set next to my ram top red then orange then green dont suppose you know what these are for guys

    The red one sort of worries me

    Those are for voltages and or frequencies. Some are also for phases and will always be on if you keep C1E and EIST enabled.

    Try these for stock setup until you get your cooler, you could probably overclock a little bit if you wanted on a stock cooler but that is up to you.

    No you wont loose your warranty overclocking, but if anything breaks just don't mentioned it, but it is highly unlikely anything will break unless you go crazy with voltages or something or let it get way to hot.

    Anytime!

    Ya you will need to, as you will need to find the correct amount of QPI/Vtt your CPU needs. You can change this in windows with easytune as you are testing, that way you dont have to reboot so much when things fail.

    I use Memtest86+, HCI memtest x3 in windows, and Linx you can get all of those plus many other testing tools here

    So when testing what am I looking for how do I no when iv hit the sweet spot? sorry if I sound a bit thick but this is all new to me But am learning all the time

    I work in a comp shop (Trainee IT Support Technician) and the boss is MS certified so he will help, normally when we build a machine we set to optimized setting and get it out so going more indepth iv never done b4 till now

    If you get errors you need more or less QPI/Vtt, likely more. If you get BSOD's and the code ends in 124 that means more QPI/Vtt, 101 means more vcore but at stock you shouldn't run into that one.

    Optimized is a good starting point, but with these overclocker type of boards auto/defaults are generally only best/used to get you into the BIOS and get going so you can set things yourself.

    Auto everything may be ok at stock, but maybe not though too. It's always best to set yourself, and since you do plan to overclock you might as well go ahead and start now so when you are ready to overclock you will be more familiar with the BIOS.

    Ok m8 cheers will u be about today?

    And I shall be ordering my new cooler today Scan.co.uk: Zalman CNPS9900A-LED PWM Tunnel Flower Cooler 1366/775/AM2+/AM2 unless u can recommend another in that price range along with some Arctic thermal paste

    EDIT:

    Forgot to ask these LEDs lights on the board just to make sure i dont have to worry about them?
