I wanted to purchase everything from amazon so i got these 3 items.




The m5a97 r2.0 with VRM heatsinks Im not ocing so it should run fine with the fx 8350


http://www.amazon.co...eywords=Fx 8350


The fx 8350


http://www.amazon.co...s=Kingston 1866


KIngston Hyper x 2x4gb 1866!


Ill update when it all comes in and if system and cpu are running right. I cant wait! :)


Next things ill be looking to upgrade later are getting an SSD upgrading GPU and changing the PSU to something realible I honestly beileve my CPU is shady now.


On the side not my board is 1 PCI x 16 and another for x4? The times x4/x16means how fast it runs with bandwith etc? So I take it if I upgrade my GPU just toss the gtx 550 ti? Or throw it in the x4 slot and thenew one in x16? Can somebody explain that to me?

Thanks for the update.

Download your MB manual so you can familerize yourself with it's features, > http://www.gigabyte....spx?pid=4364#ov

Installation video.

1, You will not need to use extra thermal paste as the stock cooler has it pre applied, > 

2.  I do not agree with wiggling the CPU or cooler, I lock down the coaler before plugging in the fan, > <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube....bed/SdyWDOf19J8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Been a while since we heard from you.   Have you gone ahead with your build?   An update would be appreciated.
