Default Parts in, ready to build!

Got everything in. Everything looks fine, expcet the mobo I'm kinda confused about. I didn't order the SLI version, but I got it! I need to compare it with the ones on newegg though, just so I know what version I got I guess

Other than that all looks good, It's currently 1:45, central time. I have to drive from 4-6, so about 6:30'ish I should be starting. I've got it all down, just need to read up more on that mobo

This is the one I ordered: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136152

Seems I got this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136158

I don't really see anything bad about it, still has a pci-e x16 slot I need, SataII, so, everything I need plus SLI!

Probably not, no camcorder =\ I'm gonna take pictures though

I've been wondering about software, AV etc.. Currently I use AVG, ZoneAlarm, and spybot, is that a fairly nice setup, or is there better?

Wow, a mistake by Newegg perhaps?? SLi motherboard is still good to have since you now have the option of dual video cards now. The only problem with that board is the lack of SATAII support. I don't think it will be a problem for you. The SATAII hard drive should work ok on a SATAI controller, just won't go that fast as SATAII will allow.

It says it supports Sata 3.0gb/s...

Glad to see you finally on..

So far, I have the psu installed, optical drive and floppy drive are sitting in there bays, then I haven't mounted the mobo yet, but have the ram installed and the processor/heatsink/fan

Only think I'm not sure about is, well, only real thing is where things plug into on the mobo. I think I'm going to screw it in place though, and go from there. I've found where the 4 usb ports on the front of my case go, don't know where the power led and switch go, reset switch/led etc..

Those wires usually go into those pins on the motherboard located near the edge of the board, maybe bottom right somewhere. If you have a magnifying glass, you can make out the small abreviated description (ie, HD LED, RESET, SPEAKERS, PWR SWITCH, etc. and so on or something like that). Just plug the case wires with the matching pins on the motherboard.

The motherboard booklet should have pretty detail description on that part (installing case wires to motherboard pins) along with detail picture of the USB header install. They even made that picture really big to show polarity of the pins making it even easier (the +'s and the -'s). At least in all my manuals, they did.

Most motherboard manuals have a diagram of where things go. So just look at that for reference. And glad to see you go your new parts!

I've got all the standoff's in place, hopefully they all line up alright. Putting this thing in is pretty tricky! I have these little red washers, should I use those with the screws when screwing in the mobo? And if so, on the top or bottom of the mobo?

You don't need washers. My old Gateway PC didn't have washers in there either and it was suppose to be "professionaly" built. My current PC don't have washer installed either. I just screw it in. The surrounding holes where you mount the screws on the motherboard are covered with insulating materials anyways so nothing will happen.

Mine came with those plastic/cardboard washers. I didn't use them, just screwed the standoff's in and called it good!

NOt really. I'm off and on with homework and other stuff. I may be away for like 15 minutes or so and then back to poke around. If 1337DuD3 is around, he can probably answer quite a bit too.

lol, I'll bet he's concentrating real hard on trying to get everything connected. I can imagine him with the manual open and messing with the wires.

Default Re: Parts in, ready to build!

Damnit, I just wrote a ton, then tried to look at the second page. Anyways summarizing what i was abotu to post, got it screwed in, I think I got all the front panel stuff hooked up, including the 4 USB's, the mobo has a spot for those. Not sure about the other port though, the IEEE something or other (too lazy to look it up) So I'm just gonna let that be.. Now all i have to do is put in the video card, harddrive, then hookup the hard drive optical drive and floppy, along with getting power to everything, and plugging some stuff in the mobo. The only other things i can think of that i have to plug in, besides things like IDE and SATA cables, are the two fans I have..

The IEEE is useless to me. It's Firewire. I never use it so I didn't bother hooking that up. It's junk to me. That's good that you got it connected. Now get the other stuff I told you before installed and power it up to see if the case buttons work (ie, power, reset, and if the LED lights come on and stuff).
