Hi and welcome Van_helsong.
If the motherboard is new then it will have the latest Abit BIOS so you should not have to flash it immediately.

The CPU you got "looks" good, with most IQYHA's hitting 2.4Ghz at least, 2.6 at a push. See my sig, Allans, Gizmo's etc.

Personally I'd just follow the Abit manual when assembling all the components. Get it working at stock settings first and check that everything installs and works as it should.

Once everything is installed (OS, updates, drivers etc) I'd run some testing/benching utilities to stress the PC at stock settings, check your temperatures and make a note of them so you can refer back to them when you start OC'ing. I dont use the Abit monitoring utilities, get Motherboard Monitor 5 (MBM5) instead.

Tell us how you get on, good luck.

DFI SLi-D, Opteron 144 @ 2.8Ghz, 4x512MB PDP XBLK, 160GB WD Caviar SE, Benq 1620DW DVD-RW, X1800XT 256MB,Custom WC.
