    i just build a athlon 64 3500 socket 939 cpu with a asus a8n-e board and when i turn on my computer it says warning cpu fan speed low or somthing like that what can it be from. And also after i put the motherboard on the brass isolators do i have to put a red ring between the screw that wil hold it in place and the board, because the case i purchased did not come with the red rings but my other case came with them. Im scared i might fry it out but i dono

    Good Evening edgar818, check you have the processor fan in the correct socket, sometimes there are more than one.

    Confirm you have the correct type fan for that processor type.

    The fibre washers are more for physical support to the board rather than insulation, check you have standard head size screws and they do not overlap the actual screw head area on the board. There should be no board earthing effect with the mounting screws, do not overtighten those screws. (commonsense)

    Ensure all brass stand-offs are correctly placed and are only fitted where there are screw-holes in the board. This is important.

    Ensure the brass stand-offs are the correct height for proper motherboard accessory card alignment when the cards are fitted.

    Ensure all M/B sockets and outlets are cleared on the rear escutcheon plate and all earthing tabs locate properly as the M/B is fitted.

    Ensure all header connections to the HDDLED, PWRLED, are correctly orientated, the coloured wire is +

    Observe proper antistatic commonsense when handling components, especially memory.
    Run Memtest86 before loading the operating system.

    Do not operate on the machine while a powered lead is fitted, even though it may appear to be switched off. The motherboard remains powered.
    (component killer!)

    Enjoy your machine.
    Cheers, qldit.
