ah ok..

I'm assuming you've ordered on newegg, how's your shipping experience with them? Fast? Slow? On-time?

I have, but I'm in Canada... 1 item took 5 days the other was week n a half... it was ordered together.

Our orders come from the US, and they have 2 warehouses... Each coast. hence the weird delivery.

lol , ups got here at like 6:30 PM. And then I had dinner and all that..

I am soo dumb, I can't upload pics, this computer dosen't have a media card reader LOL. I'll upload them once I hook up the other one.

But yeah everything booted fine the first time, now I have a question my ram is 1600, but I know the native speed of the mobo is 1333, so what do I do in the Bios to change it to 1600?

Installing starcraft, wow, battlefield, skype, no problem, 6 cores ftw !

Yhna 6 cores is sweet.

You'll have to go into the bios and adjust it... but i don't know amds so srry.....The x58 has a ratio and so you can just get close to 1600
