If it's burning hot you might want to up the fan speed a bit.I have spent the last 6 months researshing computers, and putting together a list of parts. Ive started about 5 different threads all on this computers. And now, i have finally made a purchase. I have never biult a computer before except for a frankenstien computer out of spare parts, but it was kindof a different standard being bolted to a plastic paper tray. Does it look like I did a good job?
As for hardware. Its an i7 920 with 6gb or ram. The gpu is a 275. Im getting another one on boxing day. And the monitor is a monster 27 inchs.
I have a few questions. First, is it normal for the graphics card exhaust to be burning hot? And the case has a cord coming out of the front with 2 plugs. 1 says HD audio, which i plugged in and seems to work, and the other says AC 97. Is this supposed to plug into something?
Usually you can plug only one. It all depends on your motherboard.
