Re: New build maybe

Jerry,

Enjoy the build.

I always use the wait for parts as the time to download the latest drivers of everything I plan to put on the board.

Read through the manual, determine the BIOS settings and make a plan to test every Sata port, USB header, PCI-slot and memory slot. {ie better to find a non-working port the first couple of weeks, rather a few months down the road when you want to expand}

It takes me at least a couple of days to go through everything.

But it's a task I enjoy... and it relieves me of residual worry that something hasn't been tested.

Re: New build maybe

Thanks guys. I opened the case box to make sure it was all in one piece and no damage. Nice case.

Yes it looks like it will be a treat to put the goods in. My old case is a Antec P180, not a lot of room to do anything in it. Looks like the place I ordered most of the stuff from have screwed up on the power supply and are sending me a TX650 V2 and not the TX650M. Will have to phone them on Tuesday and get it straightened out. I want the M as it is Modular. I am only going by the part number on the invoice.

Here's a thread about the two:
