Windows 7: rebuild of OEM/HP

rebuild of OEM/HP

Well I finally committed to a buy of new mobo, CPU, CPU cooler and case to repair my fried mobo of my OEM HP desktop. It's only been 2 and half months.....deciding on upgrade mobo then old ram isn't going to work.....and on an on....sucks. So I just committed to replace the original parts with the same level of performance or better with some great retail replacement parts. Now that I have ordered 3 out of the 4 parts are being shipped as we speak and one is on back order....cpu cooler. I'm looking forward to when all the parts are here and I can put it together and start computing again. Having to wait to use the wifes laptop or the kids desktop just to check emails and basic computing really sucks. Will keep you posted when all the parts arrive and the rebuild starts and post some pictures of my trials and tribulations. This is all new to me....scary isn't it.

Update:
No parts as of yet, they should start arriving on this Thursday. Bad news cpu cooler is on back order and they don't know when they'll get a shipment in or when I'll get mine. That's par for the course and my kind of luck. The saga continues....lol.

Well it's all ready paid for and I have waited this long and a few more days or even a week wont matter at this point.

Today I striped out the HP/OEM case and have everything in anti static bags, stored and ready to go in to new case. So when the cooler gets here; plus I forgot to order case fans, an oversight on my part, also I need some thermal paste as well. So another week anyway. Then I'll put build together. Hell I may start anyway....lol.

It's so exciting!!!!!!!

If the CPU ships with a stock cooler go ahead and use it for now.

OK, I finally got all my parts in today. Let the build begin. I think I have to postpone the build until Monday the 25th. I have to fill in at work on Friday and all day Saturday and close on Sunday. So Monday looks to be the day.

The cpu cooler I was waiting on, holy crap batman, it's freaking huge. It's the Thermaltake MaxOrb 120mm w/blue led. Well worth the wait for me.
