Where to Get Info to Make Rig

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone -- I've got my rig configured with your input, and thank you for that! This is my first build, so I don't know much like so many of you do. Any books, links or references to guide me through the process? I'll be using water cooling on my 2600K cpu, and I want to OC the chip too. Let me know if you want me to post what I parts I'll be using.

Thanks!

You should make a build thread.
and what kind of information are you looking for?

Look around the Intel and water cooling threads for more info...and it never hurts to ask if you get stuck.

It's not that difficult, and I'm sure there'll be plenty of OCN'ers toi help you along.

A google search will usually yield some guides for assembling a computer. In my first build, I found the motherboard manual to be more than enough to get me through the build. I would start with that and return with any specific questions you may have.

Tips:

- The manual that comes with your mobo will be your bible. It will tell you exactly where things are and what to connect to them. Key thigns to remember are; 4 pin Molex, 24 pin power, 6/8pin PCI-E, and your SATA power connectors. Also make sure you connect the ribbons from your drive to the mobo as well (ie. "Why isn't my DVD/HDD/SSD drive detecting").
- If in doubt search it up on youtube for a video showing you exactly how to do it.
- Read up as much as possible and then attempt to replicate instructions.

Overclocking:

- Raise the CPU multi to overclock. You can't raise the BCLK or FSB like you would normally do.
- Raise it until you can't post anymore then back off on the multi.
- Stress test in your choice of stress testing suite (Intel Burn test, Prime95, etc.).
- If it passes then it's all good, if not then back off on the multi a little bit more again.
- Once you are stress test stable you may or may not be general use stable. In which case back off the multi again.
- Do NOT overvolt your system unless you are confident that you can do so in a smart way and not make your new $320 chip catch fire and explode in your face (not literally).

wow thanks everyone! I appreciate your information and support. I looked at the build forums but since it says Specialty Builds I didn't think I was unique enough to be there. Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum. My specs are:

i7 2600K to OC
Asus P8P67 Pro
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600
3GB GTX580 MSI Lightning Extreme
CORSAIR Professional Series HX850
Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive -
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 RPM
ASUS 24X DVD Burner

I wasn't quite sure on which maintenance-free liquid cooling to get or which case either, so I was looking through Newegg. I want to OC the chip to 4.5 - 4.8.

Thanks!

Nice parts, looks very similar to mine. For the watercooling I recommend the Antec 920 I love mine

For case Antec, Corsair or coolermaster do nice one. Its up to you which one you like. I love my Antec 902, or the corsair 650D if you wanna spend a bit more.
