Tweaking my new build.

So finally after waiting so long for the damn parts to come home, my new build is finally up and running. All I need to do now is the tweaks to get the most out of this system. That's the part I'm pretty lost into. Except for drivers, what should I do, and how can I test it? BIOS? Anything? Thanks for tips!

Get it up and running well before you start tinkering,
you can use
Memtest to scope out your ram,
Furmark for your Graphics
Prime95 for your Cpu
all are free download programs and widely used
go through section three on this just to doublecheck your work, have you screwed the standoffs in correctly etc? everything plugged in where it should be, that kind of thing,
then you can think about tweaking/overclocking
have fun and post back any problems :)
