Re: Upgrading to 1155/i7 2600K
Well.. to say the least this build was a troublesome one! Somewhere along the lines I ended up using the wrong screws and chewed up two of my riser's (one beyond repair) so there's a riser not being used...
Then when I got it assembled after doing some cable management (originally never bothered) I wasn't getting a display on my LCD... so I tried both onboard and graphics card ... but i didn't try BOTH PORTS on the graphics card, did I? That was a facepalm and a half I'll tell you. For whatever reason this thing enjoys beeping once (short beep) every time I boot it... which is irritating and irrelevant. The manual says that the short beep indicates VGA being detected, no keyboard or quick boot disabled, whatever that means (how do i enable it for future reference? xD)
Next up was trying to load up windows... haha BSOD thank you very much. I've ended up doing a fresh install on my secondary HDD and I'm porting over everything from the primary, this raises my next question... is there any way to replicate the exact same setup as i had on the other disc? I'm copy/pasting the entire HDD to my new installation but I imagine this is going to be unsuccessful, right? ^^
Any way.. thanks guys for helping me pull the trigger on this one, thing's lightning fast. Used to take a whiley to change from basic theme to aero but it does it in literally less than 5 seconds which boggles my mind!
