    But what about this one I saw?

    Also what I think is an important question, changing motherboard tonight will I have to apply more thermal grease or if I don't rub any off will it be ok?? Sounds like a Noob question but I'd rather ask than assume it will be fine :/

    I never reuse thermal grease.
    I thoroughly clean both surfaces with 91% pure rubbing alcohol and then apply new thermal grease (aka TIM).
    If you reuse the existing TIM, you will probably have many small pockets of air bubbles that will trap heat and result in higher overall temperatures.

    Video cards come with different default gpu and memory clocks, depending on the brand and model number.
    I included the HardOCP information because it describes how gpu throttling can cause erratic performance or artifacts with an overclock that is too high.

    Overclocking results depend on how lucky (or unlucky) you are with how high your particular video card(s) can be overclocked.
    This is why review sites frequently say that your results may vary.

    Yep, I warned you.

    Page 19 in the 990FX EXtreme9 motherboard user manual says:

    1. Please install the memory module into DDR3_A2 and DDR3_B2 slots for the first priority.
    2. If you want to install two memory modules, for optimal compatibility and reliability,
      it is recommended to install them either in the set of DDR3_A1 and DDR3_B1 slots,
      or in the set of DDR3_A2 and DDR3_B2 slots.

    I would use the DDR3_A2 and DDR3_B2 slots even though it looks like using the DDR3_A1 and DDR3_B1 memory slots would also be OK.

    Looking better? I think it does thanks, installed 2 120mm fans on front instead of 1 150mm fan and going to put one on window of case right on motherboard I think I'm going to put 150mm so it just gets the whole general thing? Looking good, time to test :)

    It looks like you are trying to run with with your windows installation from your Extreme3 motherboard and that one of the existing drivers is causing a problem.

    It appears that the windows Startup Repair fixed the problem.

    Is there still a problem after the Startup Repair completed?
    Other than the inconvenience and time it will take, is there any reason why you can't do a fresh windows install using your Extreme9 motherboard?

    Moving or copying an existing o/s installation to another system with different hardware is often iffy at best.
    This can probably be done using the windows Sysprep procedure on your boot drive before you physically try to "move" your boot drive.

    Do you have an unused spare drive that you can temporarily use to see if there are any problems installing and running windows?

    note: You can legally install and run windows for up to 30 days without activating the installation.
    If you later want to activate the new o/s installation, you might need to call Microsoft support and explain to them that you had to replace your former motherboard.
