Description

Hello I am 14 years old, and this is my first ever custom gaming pc which was made about 4 days ago which i posted this build on pcpartpicker. I'm posting this again because people wanted to see an updated build if I was ever to Overclock and add more pictures.

So here it is. I did not want to overclock the day I finished the pc because that would just be being dumb. Instead I waited for a couple of days running the pc through tasks and games just to see if there were any driver fails or any/bios updates.

After getting the necessary tools and updates I started overclocking got it to a stable 4.2 Ghz on 1.1v

While doing some benchmark tests on prime95 i got on full load a max 78C and minimum of 32C and while under load playing Planetside2 on ultra settings while getting 60-90 fps in big fights got around 58C

That is pretty much it for now and will update again if anything changes.

Tip for the future. It's only anti static on the inside... DO NOT PUT YOUR MOTHERBOARD ON TOP OF THE BAG!

Never ever place your motherboard on an anti-static bag!

Why is that? It's anti-static

Only the inside of the bag is Anti-Static. The outside is conductive meaning you could short out the board.

I guess you learn something new every day.

It won't short out, unless you run electricity through it. And either way, even while using the inside of the bag, it is still dangerous.

On the inside only. Outside it's coated with a conductive coating.

Prepping the motherboard on the antistatic bag as Carey stated is fine as long as you don't put electricity through the motherboard. So I emphasize do not, I repeat DO NOT power on the motherboard while it is on the antistatic bag. The outside of the bag has a thin lining of metal causing the outside of the bag to be conductive. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antistatic_bag

"To create the anti-static effect, the black or silver bags are slightly conductive" ^ this is why to play it safe just get in the habit of not building on the "conductive" bag.

Cool video, so it does show that putting the motherboard on top of the anti static bag doesn't really harm it at all.

as long as you don't put electricity to the motherboard. Because the bag is conductive on the outside. You can have some serious problems if you power it on while it is sitting on the bag.

Beautifully done. And your cable management should be an example to all first-time builders.

Clean build, what was your ambient room temp? My room temp is your idle temp and my idle temp is about 10 degrees higher. Was wondering if your room temp was super low too. Otherwise time to clean the heat sink and reapply TIM again.

Well my room is the hottest in my whole house, so to say no my room temp was not super low
