|Thanks for the response! Yes I did apply thermal paste when I switched the motherboard. When the system is running, all the fans are running normally, if the CPU or video card does heat up I do notice the fans increase in speed. Also my case is a full size AZZA which has a 140 mm fan on the side (blowing air into the machine), a 140 mm fan on top (blowing air out of the system), two 120mm fans in front blowing air into the system, and one 120mm fan in back (blowing air out of the system).|
I also have a 64 bit version of windows 7. I have two seperate hard drives (one is a 32 bit version of Windows7 while the other is a 64 bit version of Windows 7). I did that just in case any problems developed. Also I experianced the same issue with the 64 bit version as wll.
One other thing I did notice was that when the system does start upthe Gigabyte application "easy tune 6" asking if I want it to make changes to the system, I just select no since I have no intention to overclock.
Additionally, I also noticed when I was double checking my connections, one of the heat sinks on the motherboard seems loose. It not the one on the northbridge, but located between the CPU and the rear connections. Thank you for your help!
