What tools do I need?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So,

I'm going to be building my first machine. I've got the specs worked out, but I'm wondering what tools I'll need? Any advice?

So, I know to get Thermal Paste, a Phillips Head Screw Driver, Cables ties (Coated twist ties), and finally this (14:30 in video):

and also a Serial ATA to Molex adaptor

EDIT: How do I get that YouTube video out of there LOL?

So, here's a few questions:

1) Any recommendations for Thermal Paste, or is it relatively all the same?
2) Can anyone tell me where I buy coated twist cable ties, I can't find them at pccasegear
3) What is that little speaker called and where can I get one?

4) Is there anything else I'll need that you guys recommend?

I'll be working on a rather spacious non conductive surface.

Get mx-4 OR AS5 for thermal paste
Just get zip ties
The speaker should come with your motherboard
Finally have fun building and make sure you read all the manuals and plug in all the right cables!

For thermal paste, I'd pick up some Arctic Silver 5. It's been the top choice for system builders for a long time.
