Here's what I did.
Upgraded my ram, threw in another cd drive, and changed the heatsink/ fan over the cpu.
Here's what I got successfully done; the ram and the drive.
My question is, why is there two extra cd drive selections appearing on My Computer? Does it have something to do with the jumper? I had set it to slave, but some other person mentioned to put it on cable select.
Here's what I failed at; the heatsink/ fan.
After installing the other heatsink/ fan from another computer which seemed to have had a better type, I don't know if Asus good or anything but the durable look of it and larger fan attracted me to it and put itself over my standard no-brand item, I came to the conclusion the heatsink was not touching the processor at all. I don't know if they did that on purpose, to add an extension on where the screws are placed on the mobo.
Anyways, even so, I tried to turn on my computer. It ends up overheating. Is that normal? To readily overheat a second after I push the power button? I reinstalled the other fan and now the computer's working but what was that? It can overheat that quickly?
I believe victory only exist at the end, no matter how the factors present it.
