I just fired up my new system. Everything seems fine. My CPU temp is running about 25-26 degrees celsius.

I just installed the chipset drivers. Is there any particular order after that or not? All I have left is the sound card drivers, video cared drivers and the DVD-RW drivers.

I would first install the video card drivers, then the sound card drivers, and the DVD-RW drivers. This is based on personal preference btw, not on any conventional wisdom.

Which apps/utilities do you install first, once you're done with driver installs, if I may ask?

That's funny, I did the exact squence you described and I just read your email now lol. I loaded my 4890's drivers, the monitor's driver, sound, and then the DVD-RW drivers. I did some testing while I let it sit idling to get the thermal paste to set in. I loaded CPU-Z and the one (flying passed my mind) that looks at the temps of my system. Everything seemed fine except for the RAM timings, I have to change. It set it at 1.5v.

I havent loaded any games yet. Im still in "awe" mode lol.
