Very nice. Congrats on the build. It's always fun to do these every few years. Glad you went with a SSD. I also upgraded my machine to a 1TB SSD and I move older games to my 3TB drive when I am not playing them. The SSD makes a huge difference with loads times.

You're sure the fan is plugged into the correct fan port on the motherboard? There may be a couple of them.

Not sure I am following....so the temperature warning error is gone? You can boot into Windows but you are not seeing the 2TB drive? Go to Disk Management...just type that in the search box and it should come up, otherwise it is in the Control Panel>Administrative tools. 

I suspect you will see the 2TB drive there, but it will be un-partitioned and un-formatted. Once you partition and format the drive, it should show up with a drive letter.

Hmmm. If it's showing up in the BIOS but not in Disk Management, maybe check the BIOS again and make sure the port that is connected to the 2TB drive is set to AUTO or something similar. You can also try another SATA port on the motherboard and another SATA cable if you have one. Just make sure everything is powered down and unplugged if you change ports. It should eventually show up in Disk management as an un-partitioned drive it is it new.

Right click the drive and select New Simple Volume. This will partition it. You can then format the drive in NTFS.

Glad it's working! I would leave the RAM not worry about tweaking the BIOS unless you really feel you need to. Good luck with the new rig.
