I have just built a new computer from NewEgg and "finally" got the Vista Home to load. It was crashing before I even could get Vista installed. Long story short I have replaced the video card and didn't help. I pulled one Corsair 2 G memory module and finally loaded Windows Vista. When I put the other Corsair 2G memory module in the Intel board it crashes. I downloaded speedfan and the processor was running at 54 C, I took the stock fan up, re-installed the Artic 5 thermal compound getting a very thin coat and it runs at 51C now, but I watched the cores go right up to 85C and then the computer crashed. Do I need an aftermarket cooler for the processor? I admit the stock fan doesn't look very good? Oh, I am using a DP55WB desktop board also.
