Build 2013 is Complete!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello All,

I spent the night building my new system, I removed the old system (everything) from the case & cleaned the case & fans. I installed the ram & processor outside of the case & went from there. Everything went smoothly & a couple of hours later I was installing Windows 7HP 64-bit, I have NEVER seen in install go so fast.. I didn't time it (wish I would have) but it couldn't have been more than a few minutes!?

I installed all essential drivers & ran windows update, after that I ran WEI & got 7.9 on all but the processor which got a 7.5. but that is fixed with a little Overclocking.

Thoughts: This is AWESOME.. I have always wanted "Instant" computing.. & now I've got it.. almost everything opens instantly! My old system, you click on something & waited a couple seconds. Click. . . . . . . o p e n. New system, clickOPEN!! lol

I can't wait to get a couple game & test this bad boy out!

Here are some photos of the build. Sorry for the bad pic quality.. tablet camera.

Motherboard: MSI Z77MA-G45.



Crucial Ballistix LP 8GB 1600 CL8 & Intel Core i5 3570K installed.





Motherboard installed into the HAF 922.



Cooler Master N520 installed.



EVGA GTX 660 SC Installed.



Creative SB X-Fi Titanium Installed.



Drives installed, OCZ Vertex 4 256GB OS, WD Velocoraptor 300GB & Seagate Barracuda 250GB Storage.



System Complete. NOTE: This is just temporary.. wiring etc. I plan to move everything into a new Fractal Design Define Mini case in the next couple of weeks when I have the extra funds.



Windows Experience Index.



Later, Phil B.

Nice smile.gif it'll be a great upgrade from your Sig rig! I love the look of that video card. I'm a big EVGA fan and their latest line of the boxy looking ones are so sleek! Good choice biggrin.gif

Just wanted to add my Restart-Time, I went from around 60-90 seconds with my old system to this! lol It's very noticeable!



I did a little tweaking & I'm now getting this.
