O.K. I got the asembly 98% done. Everything went real smoothly, and I enjoyed that part very much. I wasn't going to power up tonight, because if their was a problem, I knew I wouldn't sleep. But I just couldn't resist.
So I powered up while watching things closely. All fans CPU, rear case, PSU, and front case all workly quietly, and slow speed. Noticed no heat at all anywhere except maybe ever so slight warmth from memory after being on a few minutes.
Not sure what the first screen was on the monitor as I was busy watching other things first. When I did look here is what it showed;
Loading operating system......
Boot from CD/DVD:
Disk boot failure, insert disk and press enter
I assumed what I was seeing was real good, so I continuing checking other things, very happy so far. CD/DVD tray opened, LEDS on etc. I didn't even hook up a keyboard yet. Let run a couple more minutes and then shut down, time for bed.
I'm not real sure where to go from here, but I guess the next step tommorow will be to hook up keyboard, enter bios and check things? See if MOBO detected Memory correctly and other components ? Then what, insert MOBO disk? At what point should I install Windows 7? I'm not sure I'm going to enjoy this part as much as the actual build.....
Thanks fellas and good night.
