Well that's a scary thought.. Can't say I've ever experienced any static from bubble wrap before.. This would have been a very expensive way to learn that lesson.

And thank you for the kind words. I thoroughly enjoy building machines, especially now with the opportunity to play with parts of this quality. I've already got many great plans forming in the back of my mind... Next up is most likely a media center / network storage server system.

Excellent advice. It will also protect the case's paint. Make sure the cloth is all cotton to avoid ESD.
Hehe.. Yeah, both good tips. It's already been flipped and flopped and spun around a few times, pretty much done now though.

...and. It's alive!

Just trying to sort out my last few drivers quickly so I can bench it properly. But I had no issues getting my RAM to run at 2400 and Win8.1 was completely installed and configured in just under 20 minutes... Now I just to install and partition my drives (only system drive in so far), install apps and copy over about 4TB of stuff from my old box..

I'll say one thing now though, this beast is mind-numbingly fast... Can't wait to get Steam setup and get a few games up and running. I know I don't need to, but once I'm a bit more comfortable with the millions of settings the RIVBE BIOS gives me to play with, I think I need to play around with clocking it a bit, just for fun.

Andre when you get time could you update your system specs.

I would recommend running your system a week or so just to make sure everything is okay before over clocking. Keep watching the temps and make notes. That will give you a base line of your temps stock. You can use this information when over clocking.

Thanks Jack, I will do soon.. I'll be adding the two mass storage drives tonight and moving all my daily stuff over.

I still need to do a great deal of reading up on OC'ing Intel based systems first anyway.. I've been a pretty thorough AMD fanboy for many years, so I've got a whole bunch to learn now. So far with simply installing software, copying files and rebooting a few times last night, the average CPU temp (overall, not cores) was floating around 30 degrees, but it wasn't working all that hard and the ambient room temp was about 20 degrees. I plan to push it a little bit harder tonight and see how it behaves..

Doing stress test before over clocking will let you know how your cooling is working instead of how your over clocking is working. Thats is a good thing. It is nice to know that the cooling system can handle a default settings under heave load before you start over clocking.

It's just one of those paranoid testing I do with my systems before over clocking. It also helps the thermo paste set in. It also give you a chance to look the system over.
I have been known to install a fan backwards and catch it doing basics testing before over clocking.

I only got 3 brain cells so I have to be paranoid.

I think this is the main reason I could think to do the burn-in tests, with another benefit being the bragging rights (with the right hardware). (:

But I know what you mean about checking for silly mistakes; if you look at this pic, you'll see I initially installed the rear fan the wrong way round at first, I did fix that a few days later though.

A few years back, one of my friends got his hands on a closed-loop water cooler (don't remember which one) and ended up with one fan on each side, both blowing air into the RAD. Nothing got damaged fortunately, we saw high temps before the CPU load got too high, but it was a classic moment he never quite lived down.

Usually, pink or red bubble wrap is anti-static.

You probably wont see a spark or feel the static discharge that kills an electronic component.

It's very disappointing, the component simply doesn't work and you didn't even get a good show.


And just BTW, when assembling my monster PC, I got the two fans on the H105 pointing in opposite directions. Had to remove the rad from the case to turn one of them around.
