Hey guys so today im getting my final parts for my first build. Im building this for my parents cuz thier computer is over 8 years old i think? So yeah a big upgrade for them. Im sure i messed up in some areas, for instance i took of two stickers of the GPU, the one that are on the back, also i folllowed Artic silvers instructions on how to aply thermal paste (vertical line method) and than two weeks latter i watch the new video that logan put up on how to apply thermal paste and relize i should of done the pea method.Also my sister touched the back of the motherboard where the cpu sits, she touched those little bumps (idk what they are called) so im not sure if the did anything, also i had two pins from the system panel header bend somehow, i dont even know how that happened but i straigned them out and hope that everything will be fine.
Here are the specs:
MOBO- Asrock z77 extreme4
GPU- EVGA GTX550 ti
CPU- Intel i5 3570k
CPU Coller- Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo
PSU- Corsair TX650
HDD- Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB
SSD- ADATA XPG SX900 ASX900S3-64GM-C
RAM- CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)
Optical Drive- ASUS 24X DVD Burner
Case- Corsair 300r
I know there are other parts that are faster and cheaper than the parts i choose but it would take for ever to make up my mind if i asked the internet cuz everyone has thier own opinions.
ill upload some pics latter to show how i did on my cabaling.
