Not quite ready to actually start building yet… But most of my parts came in today!
- A Rosewill USB 3.0 internal 3.5″ 74-in-1 memory card reader!
- Corsair liquid cooling system for the CPU
- 2 Western Digital 1 TB 7200 RPM hard drives
- A DVD burner
- The motherboard to handle all of this stuff!
- 16 GB of DDR3 RAM
I had a little panic when I saw that the hard drives didn’t come with SATA cables, but then I found two in with the motherboard. Still going to need one to get everything up and running, but that’s not too bad!
I also read the manual for the mobo, since it’s been a long time since I’ve built a computer. Still seems as straightforward as ever, and this is definitely the best motherboard I’ve ever had!
Anyway, tomorrow is Sunday, so I don’t plan on any updates. We’ll see what comes in Monday morning. Until then, don’t forget to “Spring Ahead” on any clocks you own that don’t do it automatically!
