Problem:

I've done my best to ensure everything is intalled correctly, and secure. I had a few questions along the way, which I asked and was answered by a friend who has assembled computers before.

When I power up, the PSU starts, PSU fan runs, case fan runs, CPU fan runs, don't know if the video card fan runs i cant see it very well, LED on motherboard is lit, and power LED on front of case is lit. Everything sounds like it is running OK, but nothing shows up on screen and no BIOS beeps are heard like the motherboard manual promised.

Any ideas?

Hi pleasehelp!, Welcome to BC.
You've got a memory issue(bad or incompatible). No beeps, no display points right at it.
Double check your manual but if memory serves correctly, I'm pretty sure that board only supports DDR2 800\667\533 modules. Just worked on one a few weeks back.

Actually I just got the whole system working. What happened was that I forgot to connect a third power connector to the motherboard *doh*. Now I have a different question.

I bought this CPU becauase it is notoriously cold and people boast under 20C under load. Well mine runs 45-55C on idle, unless my motherboard monitor program is wrong.

I dont know what could be causing this. I'm using the heatsink and fan that came with the processor, and it definately should not be this hot. Any ideas?
