Haha I wouldn't be so sure about that!
Yes I got the cleaning fluid and the thermal fluid.

After looking again to double check, I need these two extensions, both are USB but is there a reason why one only has 4 pins and the other has 9? I don't need the audio extension after all it reaches fine.

Your image is a little fuzzy on my screen.
There are only two USB 2.0 headers, both identical 9 pin (blue). User Manual Page #22. Please indicate the other one you are referring to, in the Manual.

I focused it on the USB I was talking about. (Picture should be ok but if not I'll reupload) If you can see it is a 9 pinned USB but yet my cable has only 4 pins. You can see the other four pins from the MB with no contact at all (the right USB) I am referring to both of them but for some reason in my PC only one of the two cables has a 9 pin, the other has a 4 pin. I'd understand they are exactly the same but why do I have one with only a 4 pinned cable?

If purchasing a 9 pinned extension would it go OK into my 4 pinned cable?

Hi.

Cleaned up the image and can now see what you are referring to.
On the Old MB, the header on the left Supports Two USB Sockets and is doing that. The Header on the right is exactly the same (can support two sockets) but is only supporting one, You will need this adaptor, > http://pcpartsandcab...&products_id=29
Plug into a USB header on the new MB. The cable is split with two separate plugs, (they are configured as sockets, You push in a pin assembly to turn one of them into a Header, then plug in the cable from the front of the case .

I have successful transferred MB.

I do have one issue, my processor fan is very loud, at least four times as loud and doesn't change. My PC is also slower although I have more RAM, as I write this it lags and has to catch up. I haven't done anything with the Windows 7 disk as I have no idea what to do. I believe this is probably causing the problems but I don't know what needs to be done.

Hello SophieMayk

I will pitch in while iammykyl is offline.

To install W7, please refer to the upgrade option at the attached link if you wish to keep any data on the HDD http://windows.micro...lling-windows-7

Once you have installed Windows you must install the drivers for the MB from the disk that was supplied with it, be sure to install the chipset drivers first.

Thank you, left it doing its business. If the noise still continues do you have any idea what is the cause?

You are welcome :thumbsup:

I cannot speculate at present, what is the noise like as in does the fan sound like it is turning too fast or is it rumbling.

Going way too fast. It's faster than a fan on start up and just constant.
My install is stuck on transferring files.. I'm going to leave it on all night and hope it works..(unfortunately it is in my room so I have to try and sleep with the fan!) I read up on this problem and couldn't find an answer.

Thanks Phillpower2 for stepping in, Posted Image

The CPU fan is running full speed as it is not being properly controlled by the MB and is protecting the CPU in case it is overheating. as Phillpower2 indicates, after the driver installation it will return to it's normal behaviour.

From the link in Post #69
Q. Did you do a clean install?
or did you do a upgrade install?

Q. Did you follow the steps in Post #53 for the rebuild of the computer?

I did an upgrade and yes I followed the steps.

I installed the drivers and the fan is still making the same noise.

Also in my BIOS it states I only have 2GB of RAM, the 4GB stick isn't there it says "None."
When I run CPU-ID it states I have 6GB. My PC is running so slow it is hardly usable.
