It is ALL good! I just finished all 4 installations of Sierra, have all my stuff put away now finally.

I think I know what happened the first time.

I have two monitors running off the mobo and the other two off the card, everything drags from any screen to any other perfectly.

Nice work! So what was the probem before?

Something someone said here caused me to remove the cpu fan and then reinstall it. As I went to remove it I found that it may not have been fully locked down the first time. That coincides with the error message about "cpu fan" when it very first booted, before I installed the OS. I thought it meant the fan connector, but now I believe it was referring to the fan itself.

After I thought I had it all working the first time, with two monitors through the mobo and two through the card, it caused the colored lines again, but only through the screens attached to the mobo. That said to me that the problem was with the IGP, which I realized in hindsight could have been damaged by the loose connection. It took me awhile to get it together in my head.

This time around, zero errors, fired right up, and I had already updated everything possible once before, so installing drivers and updates was a breeze. This one benchmarked well, but the processor is not as high of a mark as the last one. 9900 something this time compared to 10xxx last time, which may just be luck of the draw. But the overall Passmark score is higher than last time, even with 8GB less ram installed.

I may not need more than 8GB. I watched the memory usage over a lot of different tasks, and the only time I got over 5GB was when I was downloading a lot of historical trade data. But, running 4 installs of Sierra only needs around 3GB with what I am watching. This time around I was not going with anything not specifically listed on the QVL, and once I had it narrowed down to 1.5v, 1600mhz, 4 dimm potential, there was only one 16GB in 2 sticks, ADATA. I know nothing, but ADATA was not spoken as highly of in the forums I read, so just to be extra cautious this time, I was down to HyperX Kingston and G Skill Ripjaws, and the Ripjaws was nearly 3x more popular on Newegg, mentioned over and over for it's compatibility. It looks kind of gamerish, but I went with it and got the red case fan. The Corsair Vengeange was listed for 32GB, and I would guess that is the same for being on the list, but I also had been told by the Asus tech support that too much memory was a possible issue. (which I thought was weird)

I still have way more power supply than I calculated is needed, but for easier return / swap process, I went with what was local, and they do not stock any decent brand names lower than 430w here. And, aside from calculations, my battery backup, which runs the new build computer, this laptop, a stereo amplifier, a 42" screen, (3) 23" screens, my phone charger, the cable modem, the router, and the trade computer speakers... runs at around 285w with everything pumping.

Nearly dead silent even with the case off. I was showing my friend yesterday and he asked if it was running, put his head right down into the case to check. The Intel fan has a slight noise, the Silenx fan has nothing but the sound of air moving. The DVD drive, not silent at all. But, after loading the drivers, I never use it.

The final stage is the outer case design. Still thinking about it. The sony had an inner skeleton that holds everything with all of the outer case removed, so I can rework it at any time. But I am ready to put it away, so will probably make it one of this weekend's projects.

Thanks for all the feedback and making this more fun.

slightly off topic but anyways:

I just had my new computer mouse delivered - a multikey gaming mouse instead of the office type microsoft mouse I had before. And what can I say... it`s like trading a VW Golf II for a Lamborghini. I never imagined that it would be such a vast difference in how it feels!

Everyone should get one! Even if its just for normal office purposes (I`m not a gamer myself)

Again Congrats to your new "trading-war basecamp"

Just a FYI

Most powers supplies are manufactured for or are re-branded units.

Example: The Corsair HX650 is manufactured by Seasonic and the HX750 and HX850 are manufactured by CWT. Same series by brand but different manufactures. Hardware Secrets used to do en depth testing and reviews of power supplies listing the actual manufacture. Unfortunately they seemed to have quit doing the testing/reviews as the last one done was July of 2013. Most websites that review just regurgitate the spec sheet.

So you never know who the designer or manufacture of most power supplies are as compared to the brand name on the box.

Glad you got everything working.

Moral of the story... just buy Seasonic?
