Yeah I've looked into that slightly, when overclocked they can run at fairly high temps, but only when the processor is OC'd over 4.5GHz. So I'll be happy with 4.5 to be honest! As a first time build I wanted to buy everything as new as possible, I had ordered an i5 2500k 3.3GHz Sandy Bridge, but I cancelled it and waited a few extra days for IvyBridge!

But yeah, post the link so I can read more about it smile.gif

^ Anyone read about / taken out one of these? Performance Tuning Protection Plan by Intel®?

For $20 it seems silly not to do so?

The processor, PSU and RAM arrived yesterday, so I installed the Optical Drive (Line-On IHAS124), Case Fans (3 x Arctic Cooling F12's) and the PSU (Corsair TX650M Modular) into the case. Also spent a while doing some cable management / hiding lol. I'll probably have to juggle some of the cabling around, but hopefully most of it is right, as I looked up a layout picture of the Mainboard and positioned the cables according to this.

Mainboard is due to arrive today, the tracking indicates. So once that arrives, the only thing I'm waiting on is the CPU Cooler (Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 C.O) which I'm kinda annoyed about, as I'm dying to get this up and running! I found out that the CPU Cooler comes with some pre-applied Arctic MX-4 which Im just thinking about using instead of the Arctic Silver 5?

Well, since this is your first build and all be sure to discharge all static electricity. Most of us take it as common knowledge but be sure to pick up an anti static strap or something similar so you dont run the risk of accidentally frying anything before you even get to play with it good. I also suggest using a cardboard box to put everything together (as in put the mobo on the cardboard box and install everything and then fire it up before you ever put it in the case.

In fact, just watch this. Its a video by newegg going through the build process.

that takes care of all that good stuff.

here is a nice guide about configuring your ssd properly:

after that, you should be well on your way thumb.gif

Edit: just saw that 20$ plan and I think I will be doing it soon myself. I didnt realize it existed and I think thats pretty awesome!

I'm in the same boat as well.

We picked up the same mobo and cpu. I'm also a newb to overclocking. I'm upgrading from an Athlon x4/5770 to a i5 3570k/ 7850.

good luck!

I picked up the MX-4 as my paste. Hopefully it does me good.

Thanks for the video link, answered pretty much everything I needed to know, wish me luck, tomorrow evening will see the build take place!

And yeah, the plan is pretty well priced tbh! I think the UK version at £20 is available on scan.co.uk

Good luck with your build, I'll keep this thread updated as I progress tomorrow evening!

No problem! I once upgraded a computer when I was 18 because I had taken several networking classes and had a decent understanding of how to put one together as I had done it several times, but when I did upgrade that computer it wouldnt boot and I never could figure it out. So i just spent 500 dollars and recycled alot of the parts to do a semi new build. Got everything in the mail and low and behold this new build wouldnt boot either. Turns out I just didnt have one of my wires hooked up correctly and it was basically just an excuse to spend 500$ because the old system would have worked fine!

So long story short, I just wouldnt want to see anyone fail at building a computer because it truly is very fun!biggrin.gif

Well the CPU cooler arrived this morning, and I said "Ok, I'll get my work done and then get this built over the next few days..."

But, at around 12:15 I decided against doing my backlog of work, and built the computer! I already had the PSU all cable managed, so couldnt do the test build outside of the case, but I installed the CPU, CPU Cooler, and RAM, and then fitted it inside the case!

Thankfully, this is a post of happiness, and not "WHAT DID I DO WRONG frown.gif " Which I was expecting!

P8Z77-M Pro
Bios Version: 0801
CPU Type: Intel (R) Core(TM) i5-3570k CPU @ 3.4GHz
Total Memory: 16384 MB (DDR3 1333MHz)

CPU Temp sits between 25 to 29/30 degrees celcius.
MB Temp sits between 24 to 28 degrees celcius.

Everything seems to be fine, its been running on the Bios EZ-Mode for a couple of hours and the temp has stayed the same and nothing has went wrong, so I'll install the SSD and get windows installed onto it and then start playing with the OC'ing once everything is as it should be!
