Build Log: C2D Christmas Build - 56K WARNING!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Alright as I'm expecting the rest of the system to get here today, (I already have the monitor, case, and speakers), I am making this thread with the intent of filling it up with pictures of the build.

I already stuck the monitor into my computer to see if it works (1 dead pixel ), and I was blasting some music on the speakers yesterday, and they sounded pretty good. The case looks cool too. The entire thing is mesh on the front and it looks pretty sturdy. Anyway, time for pictures!

I just put the link to the specs thread in the second post. Do you see the pictures now? They're from imageshack.us.

And could you... well, not quote that first post 'cause it's huge with the pics.

I got everything and put it together. It worked on the first try (for once) and I'm installing Windows now. But man, it takes FOREVER to format 500GB.

Oh, and anyone know anything about E6300 steppings? I remembered to get mine for this build (unlike on my build where I had to take everything apart to get at it).

Here is the stepping:

6300 SL9SA MALAY
1.86GHz/2M/1066/06
L629B131 04

I'll put some pictures up tomorrow.

Well, maybe not. Apparently my Video Card is dead. I just got off eVGA tech support and I'm RMAing it. Guess I won't have it in time for Christmas.

Everything else works though. This won't be my first perfect build then. I had to send my hard drive back on my last one. Oh well.
