    Seasonic is the maker of Corsair psu's. ;)

    Good advice on the SSD for saving some money. Since I use MS Office a lot, I need a larger drive to hold it all.

    I agree. Looks like a new motherboard is needed. I'd be tempted to shop ebay for an X58 motherboard. You should be able to find something worthwhile. If not, look at Amazon and Newegg.

    The 8gb ram stick is not compatible. Find some triple channel ram and put it in the proper 3 slots like the manual (and zburns) says. That's the first place to start trouble-shooting.

    I know some people like to run it for several hours, but it just doesn't seem really necessary to me. If your cpu runs at 100% for an hour with no problem, I'd call it good and move on.

    Congrats on your build.

    For stress testing, look at Prime95 and FurMark. I've also used OCCT in the past too.
