You have to install the asus bios updater in windows. From there tell it to load the bin file and it will update your MB :wink:

Would it be a bad idea to run this processor overlocked with standard fan? only like 20% overclock or something like that not to much but a little as it runs on max 45C now and the last one i had ran on max 55C overclocked without any problems but would the life on it decrease alot?

The cooler they run the longer they last. My system is over clocked with a 3rd party 120mm fan and my AMD runs at 35 C. 55c is hot and 45 c should be want you hit when your maxing the cpu, not idle.

But Intel's are known to run hotter. If the system is stable you can over clock. But remember, cooler is always better. :wink:

Okey i guess i just leave it standard dont wanna f*** it up already :P anyways i got a question i got a asus gforce gt220 graphics card but i have read that it's not good for gaming idk about it but i guess thats one thing that is slowing my computer down atm so i wonder what's the differance between different DDR things like some cards hade lik DDR2 while others have GDDR5 etc is it compatible thingy or is it just speed? becouse i have been thinking of getting like an nvidia gtx 560 or something like that but idk if DDR thing makes differance if i can use it or not. ofc they both are PCI-Express but yea would like the gt560 which is DDR5 or GDDR5 work instead of the gt220? :)

Okey what brand would you recommend for gaming i mean nvidia is decent but is there any big differance between the brands when it comes to the graphics cards i have seen nvidia gtx cards and other cards aint that cheap as for example radeon is.

Anyways what card would you recommend that would work decent with games like bf3 etc on decent quaility without any major fps lags which also aint to expensive. really like that card you linked aint to expensive to buy in sweden either

My card that I posted has handled everything I have thrown at it on max settings. BF3 and MW3 didnt skip a beat.

Saw there was this other xfx radeon card which is the same as the one you linked but with dual fan for like 10 more euros i wonder do you think that 10 euros would be worth for a dual fan?

I got the card today and i cant get the drivers to work i start installing usin the cd when it come to a certin point like when it's going to start intalling the real drivers nothing happens i have tried to download newer ones from their site also i have tried to uninstall and then install again. when the window that says "uninstall" or "install" comes up and i press any of these the windows closes and after couple of minutes a window comes up and says that it havent been installed right. and i have plugged in the cables from the net thingy i dont know how it's spelled on english anyways the net thingy is on 500 watt which the card should work with and the cables are 6 pin both of them but i cant find the card in device manager etc.
