Hey guys, i just finished up putting together my brand new build, and I was wondering two things.
1. What order should i install/update things? i assume OS instal goes first, but it could be MOBO cd for all i know!
2. I'm interested in overclocking the components in this comp, so i bought parts that are known for being good at it, but im unsure when/how to do this exactly, does anyone have any advice or know a guide?
Yes i did extensive research haha, ill post the specs at the end of the message. sorry i was unclear, i know the OS cd isnt the one that came with the mobo, i meant either the OS cd or the mobo CD could be the first one to be installed because i was unsure
I just used the newegg links for reference, i got the 620w for free and the WD HDD for $50 off a local store
I have all 4 Ram sticks and my CM 212 installed fine, i had to adjust a bit but it works perfectly with good airflow.
any advice on the original question though?
Windows will install the default drivers for you. After that it's up to you to install the AMD drivers, it's fairly simple. Don't use the CD drivers for the graphics card. Always get them from AMD's online website. http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx
The CD ones are usually out of date.
As for the MB drivers, they update those rarely depending on the company so the CD ones should be up to date. If not check your MB's website.
