I don't think you would get replacement parts under the warranty as the damage looks very much like incorrect handling.

 

 

I thought Intel will be much easier to build but it will be costly than AMD. Plus I get really really nervous installing CPU. unlike Intel where its pinless I think I might be less nervous when installing it.

Yes it will be more expensive, but not simpler.   There are still pins on a Intel build, but they are inside the MB socket.   I still get a bit nervous when instilling a CPU, there is always the chance of a mishap.

This is the Intel method. > http://www.intel.com...b/CS-030860.htm

Sorry, I realize I got some extra AMD CPU here. Accidentally I bought two CPU.

Looking at some forum people said that the best MOBO for OC is this

 

You think its a good one?

that board has many complaints about slow boot up time, I also think that Asus produce better quality MBs.

Please consider this one, > http://www.newegg.co...ID=3938566&SID=

Hi, Ive been comparing MOBO before buying. The one you suggest is good and i did a little research about that.

I notice people are talking about power chase design

 

ASUS got

4+2 phase power chase design

 

while gigabyte got

6+2 phase power chase design.

 

Is this something I should worry about? do they talk about compatibility here?

 Not too much as you are in the right design group with those boards.   Has nothing to do with comparability.   fyi. The correct term is "power Phase design."

"Several boards utilizing the AMD 790X/FX series chipsets most commonly use the 4+2 power phase design. This means that 4 phases will be dedicated to the CPU, 1 to the RAM, and 1 to the HT. Reference and HyperTransport. This is the ideal amount of phase for overclocking. Even the highest quality boards that contain the 790FX chipset uses this phase " source > http://www.overclock...ign-explanation

 

Some further reading, but I would not get to caught up with tech, if you stay with the OC features that are supplied by the MB manufacturer, you will be pretty safe and stable with overclocking.

Hello.. Thank you very much for recommending the board.

 

Finally got my build running. GPU works just fine.

I think every thing works just fine.

 

I learned a lot from this thread.

 

Thanks for being patient and helping me.

 

You are awesome!!!
