Hey guys, I'm a fairly newbie system builder, but have a fairly good grasp on the basics. I recently picked up the following parts for a build: asrock x58 extreme mobo intel i7 920 (2.66) (LGA1366) BFG Nvidia 9800GT 2x Crucial 2GB DDR3 1066 RAM(240pin, PC3-8400) Seventeam PSU 750W ATX 12v active PFC\ Hitatchi 640 GB SATA HD Liteon some generic DVD/CD SATA drive The build went off pretty smoothly, or so I thought. got everything hooked into my new case, first time I've ever mounted my own MB, usually get a barebones system to start with; The only thing I noticed was strange during the build itself was the North Bridge has two black pins on springs that hold it down, and one seems to have broken off during shipping. I found it in the box and returned it to its place. I get everything installed, all the cords for the case controlls and such run, hook up my PSU cords, two into the MB, one to the HD and CD, and one to each of the fans (the 9800 doesn't have a power slot .. I think) Boot it all up for the first time, bios shows up just fine, I hit F2 to boot into bios, don't see any problems, all the hardware it shows looks appropriate. Save the settings and restart, booting to my windows disk. About 2-4min into the install it restarts several times in decreasing intervals. I spend a little while discouraged about this. During this time, if it gets all the way to windows install, the error on the Debug when it crashes is "AA" It crashes after a min or two even in I just sit in bios, Debug saying "87" (which is the "bios executed" display) CPU is sitting at about 100-109F. Is this high? Any thoughts on what this could be? I'm perfectly willing to post more info if requested, and I'd really appreciate some help getting this build working. Thanks! ::EDIT:: Also, occasionally when it crashes(read: freezes for about 30-90sec, then reboots) it throws the "38" error to the debug, which is listed as "Starting other devices through DIM" or something very near that.
