  1. Very good guide.

    Uses parts that are a bit more high end than what your using, but still the same method.

    Tips:
    - Download drivers ahead of time. They can easily extend the time of a build by an hour or two, audio drivers in particular take ages for some reason.
    - Don't underestimate the importance of test-benching.
    - Put the I/O shield in first, and make sure its actually in. One you screw in the motherboard, getting access to it is pretty difficult and is near impossible to do correctly.
    - Anti-Static wrist strap, use it.
    - Never put the side panel on before your done, something will go wrong guaranteed.
    - Upon first POST, feel free to scream "ITS ALIVE!". Its a natural part of the slide into insanity building process.
    - Graphics card in last, once its there it makes everything else so much more difficult.
    - Expect to be downloading Windows updates a week later, not even joking.
  2. To add to manofchalk's list:

    - Don't even put the side panel on before you've booted it for the the first time. It's a definite cause of bad luck if you do!
    - Take your time with the cable routing. Make sure everything is properly streamlined before securing stuff in place with plenty of cable ties. Redo it as many times as it takes to get it to your liking.
    - Be very careful when installing the CPU. I've bent motherboard pins before due to not being careful enough and scraping the corner of my CPU across the pins (ugh... luckily it was a cheapo H61 board). If you bend a socket 1155 pin, you're very unlikely to be able to fix it (they're pretty darn tiny), and you'll just have to buy a new board. With due diligence though, this is quite unlikely to happen.
    - Set aside time you know that you won't be interrupted or needed during. Although it's not rocket science, building a computer is something that requires your attention and time.
    - Post some pictures, we love to give advice/feedback over in the member systems gallery!

    All the best,
