Finished my First Build!!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello again. I just finished the build of my first system (specs as listed below) and I want to thank all the awesome people here who helped along the way, most probably without even knowing it. Every step of the way I came here for advice (mostly as a guest) and every time I found an answer. Anyways, this place rocks and I cant wait to get my new monitor and start up crysis 2 for the first time.

Also, now that I know the machine is working:
  • Is there a good overclock guide for my setup?
  • Is there any basic software I should install that I might not know about?
  • anything else I might be missing?

As always, thank you all for your help

prime 95 or something similar for stress testing your cpu to test the OC and realtemp or coretemp for monitoring temperatures, and cpu-z to monitor core voltage and such... all covered in that guide

edit: a couple other useful guides

First Welcome!
Second, nice build!
Third...Once you get your overclock set up and stabilized take a look into folding@home with that nice sandy bridge of yours
