All the way from California to New Jersey one day early to boot! Thanks New Egg! Unfortunately I can't build it tonight... will have to wait until tomorrow! Just thought everyone should know! (all my other parts came in throughout the week from Newegg and Amazon, no problems!)
I'm really stoked to start putting everything together and hoping everything works the first time! I haven't built a computer since 1998 I think... whenever the ORIGINAL AMD Athlon came out. Long time. Should be like riding a bike... I hope! Wish me luck!
I got mine up and running yesterday and was very pleased! Today I gave the OC Genie a shot and its OC'd at 4.2, so not bad on the i5 2500k. I love this build so far and gonna give prime95 a spin shortly. Glad it worked out for you!
Thanks trickyhits. I think for now I will just run the OC genie as well. I'm not gonna flash the 6950 either unless I deem it necessary. I will toy around with it first, try some games out. Stoked about this build, and I still can't believe I didn't seat anything wrong or plug the wrong power connectors in.
