    Default Complete and Total Success! Yeah!

    I have built my computer with the things listed below and had no problems with anything so far and my CPU just doing typing and basic stuff with no video stuff stays around 27 - 30 degrees Celsius or so. which is pretty good considering that I just watched a video on how to put thermal paste on through YouTube and I did it very thin and like they said just barely translucent or whatever you wanna call it! LOL can't exactly think of the word at the moment.

    Here is all the specs and components of my Home Build:

    Thermaltake Black LANBOX Micro-ATX Case

    Corsair HX620W 620W Modular Power Supply

    Intel DG45ID Socket 775 Motherboard

    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3Ghz 6MB 1333FSB CPU

    Maxtor 500GB SATA HD 7200/16MB/SATA-3G Retail

    Lite On 6X Blu Ray ROM/16X DVDRW

    Floppy Drive & USB 2.0 Internal Card Reader&Writer

    These are all of the physical stuff I put into it and I plan on putting in a very decent graphics card as soon as I can and so far I have had no major problem with it and it is all working succesfully and I am now a Graduate it too!

    Glad you got it all working - was it worth the nervous waiting?

    One thing is I Had a lot of work on getting those cords for the powersupplty enough out of the way to let air to the CPU but I was able to get them out of the way but now they crowd the left side where the Graphics Card sits but it doesn't get really hot or even very warm so I'm not gonna worry about that! It was very fun adventure and will not ever go back to buying prebuilt computers ever again I will from now on build my own! I promise!

    I figured since I've had it about a month and figured I ought to post on how she's working and have had no problems I would consider any major problems or anything thus far but it's only been a month mind you though! I hope it keeps going this way and I also added a TV Tuner into it this week and love it and recorded my 1st couple of shows onto my Hard Drive and burned my favorites onto a DVD and I bought a 100pk of them with the tuner too! I love this computer a whole ton and am glad I built it too!

    I am proud to say it is still working and with a HIS Turbo 1gb 4870 graphics card too and it is still running very strong and I am on here with a new name cause I lost the password to my old account and do not have access to the email I used.
