My first build!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone!

I subscribed here a week ago looking for advice before building my first pc. I'm used to car forum where you get flamed and told to search in 90% of the post and only 10% is really worth reading. It was nice for a change to be welcomed with constructive answer! Thanks guys!

So I went with the build and ordered all the parts from the net,

Cooler Master 690
P6T-Se Mobo
i7 920 cpu
G.Skill Ripjaws 6gb (3x2) 1600mhz (soon-to-arrive)
Cooler Master V8
2x 1Tb WD 7200rpm 32mb
Corsair 650w Psu
Gigabyte HD 4670 1gb
Lg 24x Dvd burner

~1350 with Windows 7

The case was the first to arrive and it took a few days for everything to show up. To ease my mind I put the case into piece and painted the inside satin black.

I assembled the cpu with ocz freeze thermal compound and also removed the one on the gpu and put the ocz instead.

I assembled this computer to do hd video editing, I had a lot of fun and if it was less pricey I would do it more often But now I will have my first go at OC'ing! I snaped a few pics, don't mind the single ram bar it was just to get it started because I just hate to wait

I wanted something that would last me a few years... And I think it will cut it. I think that a second monitor will be the only thing to add on my system.

Yup it came stock like that...

Wish I went modular but oh... once closed I won't notice the diff.

Congratulations, your build looks fantastic. I can only hope than when I settle down to put together BurnBox.2010 this weekend that I can get it to look like that.

I'm wanting to take my time and do as good a job as you have (if not better) with cable management, etc; My Antec Three Hundred has a very similar cable management on the board side of the case and I hope to utilize it quite well.

In terms of painting, did you simply paint/spray paint the inside? Also, have you actually overclocked at all yet? The nice part about having the i7s are that while the 920s come cheap, they're also comparatively simple to overclock.

Hoping again that my build comes out looking like this on Saturday am! Cheers,
