The 6800GT only requires 300W, so you have that covered.

Well everything is working great. Thanks again for the help guys.

CPU runs around 100* F, which is very nice.

I've still got it running at stock speeds right now, just wanna make sure everything is going good before I OC it.

I connected my rear case fan to the North Bridge fan connector and the PSU fan to the system fan connector on the motherboard. I figured since the case fan is basically right by the north bridge that would be the best thing to do.

What did you do hikaricloud?

What did I do for what? Little confused on what you're asking, haha.

If it's about case fans, most of mine are molex powered.

If it's about overclocking, to get my 24/7 clock I just bump the multiplier.

Did you get a core contact for it, or are you using the stock HSF?

I was just curious how you connected your fans, that's all. Sorry for the confusion.

My CPU fan, rear case fan, and PSU fan are all monitored/adjusted by the motherboard, my front case fan is the only one on molex power.

Yes, I'm running the core contact. I'll save the stock heatsink/fan for a future build for one of my customers.

EDIT:

One more question that I just thought of. I know the board says it has 5.1 audio but it only has Line In, Line Out, and Mic In connectors on it. How do I use my 5.1 speaker system with this board?
