Time do to my first build

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, my parts just arrived and i'm about to do my first ever build, but I have a couple questions.





1.I got an evo 212 to cool my 3570k and i'm wondering if I should install it outside or inside the case? (My case does have a CPU cutout)

2. I just drop the processor into the socket with the yellow triangle matching up with the one on the motherboard right?

3. Where do I put the end of the electrostatic wristband? (prolly a huge fail but I have no idea)

4. oh and should I use the stock intel heatsink to do a test boot outside my case? (just to check if my main parts are working)




Well that's it, any help would be appreciated. smile.gif

I find that installing outside of the case is usually easier, on my case at least. Also install your ram first, sometime it is a female dog trying to get your ram underneath the heatsink (this is what i did while it was inside the case). Yes match the triangles, and those shiny pins that you want to touch where the processor goes, DO NOT TOUCH THEM!! They bend easily, as for the electrostatic wristband, I am not sure what that is thinking.gif

Also while the stock paste on the heatsink is fine, when you get the chance I would recommend some better paste as I saw a 5c difference when I switched pastes.

It a wristband which conducts static electricity IIRC.

Mhm. Prevents you from being the fine host of any ESD's (electro-static discharges) and potentially frying your parts. They're good to use, but most builders prefer to just ground themselves frequently on anything metal that's plugged into a wall socket. The case is an easy one - make sure the PSU is connected (BUT NOT TURNED ON). teaching.gif

It's also good to not build on carpet - shuffling your feet around a lot can cause some unwanted static charge which you may accidentally pass on into your shiny processor. doh.gif

Make sure you read all your manuals BEFORE YOU BUILD. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. As for installing the cooler - as long as you know exactly what you're doing (read the manual, watch videos, be very careful) you won't have any problems POSTing on your first boot - that is, unless something is DOA. Let's hope not rolleyes.gif The end of the wristband clips onto your case. It should be an alligator clip. If it's one that has a plug on the end, plug it into an extension cord and plug that into a wall socket.

Oh I have never used one, I always ground myself every so often on something metal.

I thought I already did. Read all the manuals properly and you shouldn't have any problem installing the Cooler Master fan first.

Wow, spooky - speaking of CPU fans, my one JUST arrived at my doorstep... brb, installing thumb.gif

I've been building comps for some time I usually just make sure I touch something metal, I'm terrible with electrical stuff but something I remember just touch metal and you'll be fine. I avoid using magnetic screw drivers. But Asus uses magnetic antennas to stick to a pc case so *shrug*
