Best operating system for new build?

I have just built another liquid cooled gaming system but dont know what software will give me the most use of the hardware, most operating systems wont recognize the memory I have installed. I have an Asus M3N-HD/HDMI motherboard, an Athlon Phenom X49950 2.6 ghz quadcore 64 bit processor, 8 megs of Kingston ddr2 Hyper X memory, and a Geoforce 8800 XFX video card with 768 megs of ddr3 ram. 2 seagate barracuda sata hard drives 250gb ea with Koolance hard drive coolers on them. I want to run them in a raid 0 array mirrored.Ive installed it all in a Thermaltake Armor LCS full tower case with integral liquid cooling. Gaming is the hardest thing this system will have to do, everything else is cake.What OS will use the hardware to its fullest potential?

Either Windows XP or Vista 64 bit edition, depending on what you like...I won't get into the xp vs. vista battle here lol. The 64 bit operating systems can see all of your memory, with the 32 bit OS's, you're limited to around 3 or so gigs. Do note, that there may be some incompatibilities with a 64 bit operating system, though most programs should run fine.

Im getting this error sir: "windows


This should be a fairly simple fix. In the bottom right corner, or when you boot up there should be a REGISTER SCREEN... When it fails it will offer you the opportunity to call Microsoft. Go ahead and give them a call, let them know the type of computer you have, what the fault is saying. They may ask you to call dell and get replacement software, but since EVERY DELL ever made came with an operating system they are usually pretty good at giving you assistance.

If they dont and they force you to call dell, they (dell) might charge you a few bucks for a new install cd, or they may let you download one. Either way your problem should be solved in an hour .

Best of luck

Anyone know where to get a new pump?

I give you the newegg of liquid cooling.

I am not sure if the pump in a XT can be replaced. They sell pumps sperately and I certainly do think real men have their liquid cooling internal. Considering the XT was made so that you dont have to mess with radiators and pumps I doubt you can replace the pump. Looking at the XT pump its weak at 300 liters a hour.

I recommend danger den, swiftech and OCZ. It looks like the XT uses 3/8 inch so thats what these pumps are.

My computer fan is running continuously, from the time it turns on. (even before booting in to windows xp) why does my hard drive fan kicks in all the time - its loud and annoying

The fans in most desktops do run whenever the unit is on. Only high end/ performance/ or self built systems usually have self adjustable fan speeds.

Cooling Fan Options in HP System

Sounds like the fan might have dust build up on it. If that is the case the best thing to do is get a new fan. You will have to take the computer apart and check the fan to see if the dust has built up. If not then the barrings maybe shot. In which case you will need a new fan.

Hope this helps.
