BIOS. As each is different, best to have a stable running system, then look at the BIOS, RAM settings. as the Intel CPU natively supports 1600MHz, it should be set, if not, enable XMP. There should be no other special configurations or setting to do, unless specified in a manual. e.g. RAID drivers.
This is how I build, and a few basic tips. If you have any problems, please stop and post.
Safety, Turn of the PSU and unplug, take Anti Static measures, even when only handling parts, by briefly touching a bare unpainted part of the case.
Install the I/O shield from the MB box, > PSU. > OD.
Check that the standoff on the MB mounting plate match exactly the pattern and number of screw holes in the board, no extra ones.
Lay the MB on a piece of cardboard a little larger than the board, > instal the CPU, check the back of the board to ensure the locking tabs are fully engaged.
Remove any protective films from the heatsink base and confirm that TIM is present, > install the cooler, > connect the CPU fan plug to the CPU fan header on the MB.
Install the RAM. Refer MB for correct slots.
Trial the MB in the case checking the standoffs are correct. > loosen the screw/s of the expansion slot/s where the GPU will be installed. > Note the drive bay/s opposite the end of where the GPU will be installed.
Remove the MB. > remove the expansion slot cover/s, > install the MB.
Install the SATA Drives and where possible leave the noted bay/s empty.
Connect the two power cable to the MB,
Install the GPU, > connect the PCI-E cable/s.
Connect the OD.
Important. If you have installed more than one SATA drive?? connect only the drive you are using for the operating system. You can connect and configure the others after installing the OS.
Connect a display, case fans, keyboard/mouse and when used, a system beeper, ensure the + positive matches the + symbol on the front header panel socket.
Check the CPU fan plug is still securely seated.
Turn on the display and PSU, if present, a LED should light on the MB. If present, press the power on button on the MB. If not,
With a small bladed screwdriver, briefly short out the two power on pins on the front panel socket.
All fans should spin up, POST will start, LEDS on the keyboard should flash, monitor should display info and end with "No OS detected" or such. and hopefully just one beep was heard. > switch of the PSU and display.
Connect all the rest of the wiring except to additions SATA drives.
Install the **OS, read instructions if using RAID) > use the MB disc ( I do not install the trial virus/firewall/security protection or free software) > update OS and drivers, > install virus software, I use Avast Free.
If additional SATA drives are installed, turn off, connect cables, switch on and configure.
Create recovery media.
Good luck, and don't rush.
