I just recently finish putting my pc together. It was my first time and knowing nothing about computer parts, it was hard. The wiring was anyway. Anyway, how would I know if I wired everything correctly or not. So far everything seems fine. Except I dont hear a beep from the speaker, when I start it up. But so far everything is running smoothly. Any tip is helpful, thank-you.

More about : put correctly

Well, if everything runs smoothly (check your system temps though) everything should be placed correctly, except the speaker. I guess you know that the beep doesnt come through your regular speakers but your motherboards speaker. It a little thing like magnet or something. Check if its wires are in the right places.

So far everything runs smoothly. When my pc is idle the cpu is always below 35C and the highest my gpu ever was is 45C. As for the speaker, I put it in JFP2 header.

If it is a gaming computer, you can run some benchmarks to make sure it's running up to par in comparison with other similar systems.

This thread for example. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/393368-33-unigine-val...

Futuremark is another popular one, as it will also test your CPU performance and give you a score.

Well I ran the benchmark for unigine valley, my score was 3300, min fps was 33, and max was 152. Max temp was 71 averaging 69/70.Oh and my gpu and cpu are stock, just out of the box. Haven't got a chance to overclock them yet.

What settings was that at? For that thread, everyone is running it at the "extreme HD" settings, 1920x1080.

I'd love to know your valley benchmark score on extreme HD, that's a good looking system.

What are your ram specs? Is it showing up correctly in your bios at the right speed/timings?

I have Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 16GB (2 x 8GB), the NB frequency is at 800 Mhz, but jumps randomly to 3000 Mhz. The DRAM frequency is 800 Mhz. Cycle time is 24 clocks.

Have you already done the bios/driver updates from the MSI website?

So far not, I've only downloaded the drivers from the cd. Maybe I'll try that.

Good chance that'll clean things up. Completely update everything, including bios.

Once you're all set up, redo the valley benchmark at extreme HD, and post your score in that thread. I'm interested in seeing what your system can do.
