My first 100% from scratch build and I decided to go down the MSI/Skylake route for some reasonable budget performance. This build will be mostly used for gaming, photo editing, video editing, and everyday web browsing and entertainment.
The only hiccup I had was on first boot up. I couldn't get to post, or a video signal even though it looked like everything was powering up. The digital readout on the motherboard was telling me that the CPU was failing to/late to start. This turned out to be the connector on the PSU wasn't seating properly. It actually dawned on me when I remembered watching a video commenting how a shorted out Corsair PSU set someone's rig on fire.
After sorting that out by reseating the cable connectors, there's been smooth running so far.
I can't believe I haven't switched to an SSD boot drive before now, well ok I can because of the price of them, but for the speed...!
Just added a custom PSU cable set from Icemodz (Brick Red/Black), and sleeved SATA III Data Cables (Red).
