Very first build! - Page 2

Eh, I probably have to take the entire case apart now.

I just hope my motherboard is ok because when I was taking out the screws on the standoffs three of the screws took their standoffs with it so it was stuck on the motherboard, I had to get pliers and carefully take the screws off the standoffs.

after a you build a few pc's you realize they aren’t as fragile as they look, so your ok, just get the screw out from behind it before you turn it on and it will run fine.

You might want to try tilting the case around to slide the screw out instead of pulling the motherboard out again.

Both sides of my case can come off, now that I figured that one out I can work with boths sides off so this doesnt happen again.

Just an F.Y.I. To start off, the Pentium D 3.40ghz can be overclocked to (250x17) 4.25ghz with the stock Vc and upto (265x17) 4.50ghz with a 1.45Vc.

but keep in mind every system is unique so he might have to make some changes to those settings. But it is indeed a starting point

I think I might of bought a bare bone hard drive by accident, since I took the hard drive out of the package and it didnt even look like a hard drive. It doesnt have the little CD-type part on it or anything.

Do you need a CD with an HD? All the HDs I bought were OEM and honestly, I dont care.

Guess i'll return the HD. I put the memory, sound card, and video card in though.

I need to read up on how to install the CPU and its big fan, and how to put in this X-Fi I/O drive bay while I wait for my new hard drive I guess.

It seems my motherboard doesnt have enough spots for the wires that make the case lights and computer sounds work, will I have any problems with it since it doesnt have enough slots for the last 2 pins?

I have the motherboard, CPU, PSU, GPU, sound card, and memory in the case. It looks like the only thing that might be tricky is connecting everything to the PSU without making a mess of wires in my case.
