You read that title right. It is finally over. Thanks to Alien Worlds I was able to make enough money to actually purchase all my PC parts to build my very own Gaming / Video editing PC.
If you know how to Build a PC then you can skip reading all my steps and just take a look at my pictures! If you have never built one and want to know how to build one then follow along.
Step 1: Get some of the parts in the mail
Step 2: Receive more parts in the mail and patiently wait for the rest!
Step 3: Receive the last parts in the mail and start building!
Step 4: Take the motherboard out and put it on the motherboard box.
Step 5: I installed the SSD next. What I have may not look familiar to a normal Hard Drive or SSD and that is because these new ones are called M.2 drives. They are insanely fast and super cool.
There is a heatsink you need to take off first by 2 screws then you can put you M.2 in.
Step 6: Install the CPU. Make sure you line it up. It only goes 1 way.
Step 7: Cautiously set it in place even though you know it's right it is still nerve racking.
Step 8: Install the RAM. I had 4 sticks.
Step 9: Take a look at how cool it looks
I didn't do a good job documenting this with pictures but you need to install your CPU Fan cooler or Liquid Cooler. I went with a Liquid Cooler. Connect all the cables where they go. And connect the power supply. I turned it on to make sure it would POST.
Step 11: Take a look back at my Computer and realize that the Radiator didn't fit with 2 fans at the top.. The second fan hits the RAM..
Step 12: Take almost everything out and reposition it all so it fits. It does bug me the case came with black fans and my IO cooler came with White but whatever.
