Question regarding setup

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've seen all of these guides saying that I need to configure jumpers etc, RAM timings and voltage (on the motherboard, and in bios respectively), before using the system. These guides are quite old however.

I'm pretty sure you don't need to do this at all? AFAIK, put in CPU+TIM+heatsink, ram, graphics, PSU, install OS. This new build is not a gaming build at all, it's just your average computer.

TL;DR motherboard configuration when building computer?

Thanks for answering the nooby question

If you're not doing any overclocking, then it is indeed quite a simple process. However, at least make sure that the memory is running at its advertised clock, timings, and voltage. If not, then these need to be set manually (at least as far as the motherboard will allow you).

Beyond that, it's no big deal really.
