any cables I will need?

Picked up some Arctic Silver 5 HIGH-DENSITY Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound to put on my processor.

Anyone know where I can find a good tuturial possibly with pictures for Intel setups? Found a AMD http://sysbuild.cors...aspx?id=2&sid=1
so its probally close to the same besides processors install.

Hopefully I dont crack and light this baby on fire haha.

Any tips on the rig would be awesome before I make a mess ;-)

dont get the X1900XT save some smoney for now and get somehtign a little less otherwise you will kick yourself when DX10 comes out

you probably wont need any cables they will come with your case. you might need a SATA cable though depending weather or not you have bought the drive as OEM or retail...

you mgiht alspo consider gettting a 120mm fan for blowing air out teh back and an 80mm fan for an intake but besides that it all looks pretty good

Installing the processor on the 775 is the easist there is. Just drop it in and lock it down. Put 2 bb sized dabs of compound on the processor and smooth it to a very thin layer in the middle of the processor with a sandwich baggie over the index finger. Put another very thin layer(one dab) on the heatsink so it will lock in with the processor, again smoothed with your finger in a baggie. Anyway, heres tom's hardware picture tutorial.


As you can see there is only one way to install the processor. The processor will not sit evenly in the socket any other way. Read thru about the next 4 pages.

The stock heatsink fan leaves something to be desired noisewise. I opted for a thermotake blue orb II heatsink simply because it is almost completely silent. I can hear the PS fans over it. Thinking about adding enermax adjustable fans to the PS.
