first off, im happy i finally got a 775 board, that supports both ddr and ddr2, which im upgrading to ddr2 soon. and way this board has pci express 16x, and agp express. i have a gigabyte nvidia geforce 6600gt agp card that seems to only want to run at 1x, i have updated the card drivers to the newest from gigabyte. that didnt work so i updated to the newest from nvidia still same thing. the board doesnt have and agp drivers on the site.

now for the Q is there an adaptor for a 478 heatsink to fit 775? i think it would be a waste for my si-120 not to get more use. otherwise i have zipties holding it nice and firm as of now :/ i dont trust it though


on another note, i need recommendations for a sata harddrive, i had 2 ide drives, but 1 ide hookup (dvdburner going there)

No there arn't adapters.

Link for the motherboard. Twist ties won't make it sit properly causing very poor transfer of heat. Watch your temps very closely, I'd suggest you don't run your computer cause it may cause damage to your CPU, if anything, don't put it under extreme stress such as gaming.

Hard drive- http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822148140
It's OEM, so cables won't be included.

BIOS is the most accurate temp you'll find, it'll beat all the others. Only thing is, your getting information at idle not under load. Just out of curiosity, why did you buy that motherboard? It cannot support Core2duo....you know this correct. Also there would be no advantages of you having DDR2 over DDR, you'll see such small performance gains that it's not worth it.

To find temperatrues do the following, download Everest free edition. Start playing a game for 30minutes to one hours then quickly shut it down and run this program. Once it's up and running click overclock, then scroll down to the bottom and look for Tcpu. Tell me what temperature it states.

says link not found. also i only paid 5 dollars for the board. also its actually a huge upgrade in my book, everything runs faster, beings as this is my old board i listed on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.com/...I...p;rd=1&rd=1
this is my newer board
http://www.ecs.com.t.../...D=1&LanID=9
it may not seem like much of an upgrade but everything runs faster which is what i wanted. also going to ddr2 was a improvement. with ddr i could only overclock to 3.01ghz stable, with the ddr2 i can overclock at 3.25ghz stable. but im keeping it at 3.01ghz , also this cpu has hyper threading unlike my other, if i go on the nvidia site and rate my pc for vista under the speed it says "required: 1ghz you have: 3.25ghz, rated at 4.81ghz"

lol, ya when I saw your 12v rail, I was like how is that even running. Good to know BIOS stats otherwise. Since two programs have already been so far off, I can only imagine other will be as well. Though I don't really know of any other programs that we could use at this time. Even if these temperatures are correct, I strongly recommend you buy a cooler that'll fit, it's only a matter of time till that thing drops off and takes out whatever is below it.
James

P.S. for whatever reason I seems as if the programs havn't been patched for your motherboard, as it cannot even state the motherboard name.

speed fan does the same :whistling:, but reports the 12v rail as 5.78v

BIOS is of course the most accurate temp, as for the rails, under BIOS your computer wouldn't require as much power to run it....which worries me and I really wonder if that PSU is good enough for your build.....Because that's not just a little low, that's really low.

God things change from program to program on your computer. As long as your not having any problems I'd leave it alone, after why fix what isn't broken. Besides if it really was 5.78, your computer would have lots of problems, if it'd even run.
