AMD 965+ HD 7850 Twin Frozr Build

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey there guys, a while back I asked for help with my first build and now that I have most of the components I wanted to ask any tips for a first time builder in actually putting the PC together. Also any help in squeezing the most out of my CPU and GPU would be great. Thanks and have a great day.

Components:
CPU: AMD 965 black edition C3

GPU: MSI 7850 Twin Frozr

CPU Cooler: Hyper 212+

Thermal Compound: Arctic Cooling MX-4

Case: HAF 912+ extra 200mm fan for top exhaust and extra 120mm for front intake.

PSU: ???? ( Thinking Seasonic 620w modular)

Ram: G. Skill 8GB Sniper 1866

MOBO: Asus m5a99x Evo

SDD+ HDD: ??? Thinking Crucial M4 128 paired with something.

Thanks for your time and hope to post benchmarks when I finally get this built!

Congrats on your first build! The only thing I have to add is to make sure to have the HDD unplugged when installing your OS so it is sure to put it on your SSD. And get latest video card drivers from MSI's website. They have some awesome OC software.

Thanks for the tip. I know MSI Afterburner looks beast. I've heard very good things about the OC ability of the 7850 due to the 28nm architecture.

if you want your user library automatically linked on your secondary hdd, pm me i got the instructions at home, and didn't found them on the webz.

basically you open up the command prompt during w7 install and create a link for the user folder on the secondary drive.

love this since it automatically goes on the HDD when you download anything, and automatically install on the ssd.

Allow yourself plenty of time and dont rush it. A second computer online while building might be helpful. Read and reread or view videos on the web so that you know exactly what your next step is. Have fun! thumb.gif

newegg has some really helpful youtube videos. It is a set of three that just go through the steps while adding in some tricks from the builder in the video. I just recently successfully built my first computer as well. Best of luck!
