New build advice? Tags: Homebuilt Corsair New Build Systems Last response: January 6, 2013 1:29 AM in Systems Share kirkbross January 5, 2013 11:15:19 PM I just bought the below components for a new build and I'm curious, if anyone has built a few systems, what your routine is in terms of build sequence. For example: 1. install mobo into case 2. install cpu & cooler 3. install hds and optical drives 4. install psu and cable it up Or... some other order? As you can imagine, I'm very excited about build day next weekend! Thanks in advance for any tips. ---------------------------------- My parts: CASE: Fractal Designs Define R4 PSU: Corsair AX750 MOBO: ASUS Sabertooth Z77 CPU: 3770K COOLER: Corsair H80i OS+ DRIVE: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600 More about : build advice Anonymous a b B Homebuilt system January 5, 2013 11:24:25 PM Newegg suggests you do a test boot outside the case, so install CPU, RAM and your GPU to your mobo then install it into your case along with HDD's etc.. johnsonjohnson a b B Homebuilt system January 5, 2013 11:35:07 PM Here's a guide with video: http://techreport.com/review/23624/how-to-build-a-pc-th...

I'm not an expert OCer but I'd like to get it into a comfortable and safe OC zone. I know Ivy runs hot when OC'd. I'm sure there are a million threads on here about OCing Ivy. First, the build!
