BOOOM - everything lit up and kicked up just fine without a single problem. All fans, LED lights ect ect.

Now I must get down to the part I actually need some guidence with.

Software.. It booted up, I get to Bios without a problem - confirm that all components are up and running. I can boot up my Win 7 CD if wanted..

My question is if both of my drives already have win 7 installed on them do I actually need to reinstall the OS? I've heard mixed answers on this one from friends but I trust y'all a bit more.. I would expect all I need to do is get all the new drivers in place..


You don't NEED to reinstall, but it's better to. It's not ideal to have two sets of different drivers installed. In theory it should work fine, but in practice it's not always the case.
