I got all the parts on Friday and put it together immediately after. It booted up on the first try without any problems. I was surprised at how easy it was. I installed XP Pro, all the drivers, and updated Windows. I am having a couple problems now, however. I am using the MB's integrated audio I absolutely cannot get the 5.1 sound to work as no sound comes through the rear speakers. I may get a cheap sound card. Does anyone have any suggestions for a 5.1 sound card that has decent driver support? Also, the CPU seems to be running pretty hot. It idles around 50 C and gets up to about 62 C under load. Is this too hot? I will get some AS5 soon and see if that makes a difference.
