  1. I just finished building my first system. It is for my 14 year old daughter. It went smooth so far as I can tell. I just wanted to make sure my settings were good before I let her get started on her journey of running it down. 1- is the cpu fan suppose to blow in or out? 2- I believe the _____ speed says 200mhz and the cpu or mobo can go to 2000? 3- Any helpful suggestions as to keeping it running well ? I don't really need a graphics card for her just good long term performance. IM, my space, downloadind music, ect. thanks

    All is good. I think -1 is blowing in.

    The cpu fans should always blow air down onto the heatsink.

    And for cpu speed, it's usually set by a fsb (front side bus) frequency and then its multiplied by a multiplier in your bios. In your case i expect the multiplier is x10 so that 200fsb x10 = 2000 = 2ghz!!!!
