Re: Ordered my Parts! I cant wait. Need advice.
-Keep your wires neat in the beginning, its a pain to go back.
-Don't get too excited and rip the boxes open, take your time.
-Stay ground so you don't fry your parts
-Find a good workstation to stand by and work on. (wood table)
-Don't force anything into a slot, take your time and see what's wrong.
-If the computer doesn't start up in the beginning don't panic, if you were careful a simple DOA won't kill you, even though it may be a very simple mistake as that happens when dealing with expensive hardware.
-Try to be home when the packages are shipped. (assuming you don't work)
-Make SURE when you first start up the computer, go straight to the BIOS and check if it recognizes any fan plugged into the mobo, make sure all other fans are working as well
-Take your time with parts like the CPU and heatsink, those may be the hardest part of the assembly process
That's all I can think of right now, I'll let the other members finish it off.
And what did you ask at a muscle car forum?
