I7 2600k Build - Complete newb :)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have finally ordered my new pc, according to track and trace it should hit my door monday. The wait is long so I thought I would start this thread now just to pass my time hehe

this is what I have ordered:

CASE: Cooler Master HAF 932
MB: ASUS P8P67 EVO B3 Sandy Bridge
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600K Sandy Bridge
GFX: Gainward GeForce GTX 570 Phantom
RAM: Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 (2x 4)
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Monitor: Samsung 24" SyncMaster P2450H 2ms 1080p
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 2000 GB harddisk
SSD: Corsair 60GB SSD Force Series F60
DVD/RW: Samsung SH-S223C SATA Sort
Mouse: Logitech MX518 Optical Gaming Mouse
Keyboard: Logitech Media USB Keyboard 600 DK
Pad: SteelSeries SteelPad QcK Mousepad
Net Kabel: Roline LAN Cable 5.0m CAT6 UTP
PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 800W

What do you think about it - should I be satisfied, well guess I have too cant change it anymore hehe

My next question is how should I proceed in asembling the stuff when I get it. In what order and so forth.

Thank you in advance for your input.

I would have personally gone for an hx850 instead of that psu (i think it's a bit more expensive, though). Other than that the only other thing I'd question is the 2tb hdd - as I think you can get 2x 1TB F3s for the same price or cheaper and raid them.

I usually install the power supply and the fans first. Install the CPU, RAM, and heatsink onto the board (I don't know if your case a cut out in the motherboard tray, if it does you can install everything I just said after putting the board in the case). Don't forget to put the stand offs in. Good luck!

That's a pretty solid build. 2600K + GTX 570 will be a beast. The power supply is sufficient, don't worry.

As far as the order in which you should assemble everything, everyone is different. And there's no right or wrong way to assemble a computer together. I usually install the power supply last, because there's more room for your hands to move around installing everything else first. I'll just list the order in which I personally do it. I:

1. Lay board out on flat wooden surface, such as kitchen table.
2. Install CPU + thermal paste + cooler, then RAM. Set motherboard off to side.
3. Screw motherboard standoffs into case.
4. Install motherboard -- screwing it into the standoffs.
5. Install graphics card, hdd(s), dvd drive, sound card.
6. Install power supply -- plugging all required cords into everything.
7. Connect case's front panel connectors to motherboard.
8. Time-consuming cable management.
9. Install Windows.
10. Overclock!
