High Temp levels on new System

I just built up a new system with a ASUS Maximus Formula mobo and a Q6600 Quad Core and I'm using a Zelman 9500 cooling unit on the CPU with a wind tunnel effect through the case. Now the problem is that I'm getting very high temp. on the System and the CPU and according to all the reviews that I've seen regarding the Zelman 9500 on a Quad Core, they are getting temp. way lower then mine. Currently at Idle my system temp is ave 47*C and my CPU are averaging between 45*C - 49*C. Is there a problem with the temp or should that be the ave temp for this setup ?

Well, if your cpu it is only few centigrads above normal it should work the same. If CPU is overheating too much the MB will shut down immediately. In any case a temperature constantly higher than normal will shorten the life of your cpu. Check that cooling plate and fan are well in place and sticking to cpu to optimise your cooling system.
Here is a guide explaining problems related to cpu overheating . Here you can download speedfan it is an utility to monitor in real timeyour cpu temperature.

I have a white line in my TV screen

could be as simple as a bad HDMI cable or a bad connection on the LCD screen to system board cable this is internal so harder to repair. It may be a bad LCD screen, which is not really repairable as spares are hard to find (no two alike) and expensive as a new TV.

Slow internet

Slow internet connections happen for various reasons, even when you pay for a 'high speed connection'like DSL or cable.Because the internet (and World Wide Web) is built on hundreds of different technologies trying to talk to each other, there are many places where data can slow down before its reaches your computer screen. Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) might be at fault, certainly, but there are many other factors to look at before assigning blame. Some of these slow points are within your control, and can be quickly fixed with a little do-it-yourself effort:-

- Refresh your internet connection
- Shutdown your router for minimum 10 minutes so that your back end IP can be change by service provider
- Remove your Temporary files from your system
- Try to use Reginout for constantly refreshing internet connections

Have a new ac system installed thermostat is set at 76 shows room and setting the same all the time shouldn't the room temp rise before unit comes on.

Yes the temp should rise 2 to 3 degrees before the unit comes on, This is called the temp swing, try lowering the temp setting and wait for the temp to drop, then set it back when you want it.

Seems like you need to restore your Operating System from the Restorev disks that came with your computer. Place your first Restore Disk in the drive and legt the system restart. It should automatically start the restore process, and just follow screen prompts to get your Operating System back up and on line.

System is overheart.

Cool the room it is in. If that doesn't help check the fans you can check the speed of the fans from the cli.

Problems on GS2024-3.80

I just got this switch with 3.8 on it - I'm seeing the fan alert and normal back and forth constantly, like you posted. The hardware error light also flashes as it does this. The fan does not drop below the limit threshold.

I haven't even tried the network yet, so I can't report on that. This kinda stinks with a brand new switch. I got here via google about 10 minutes after plugging it in and noticing the problem.
