What do I need to do after all the products arrive?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So what do I actually need after all the parts arrive ? 

 

pcpickers: MyPC

 

Do I need to update the bios or something? (the lady in the amd said that I need to update something)

 

Or should I simply followed the instructions?

 

Also so you guys have discord?

Just put it together, install Windows and all current drivers from the respective websites and enjoy. The board is X570 and the CPU is a 3000-series chip, so you don't need any BIOS updates to get it working. You should however update to the latest BIOS version as AMD is continuously improving performance and stability through microcode updates.

I would recommend you watch a couple build guide video, e.g. one from Bitwit and LTT:

This will give you the general idea of what to do.

 

Short steps to build a PC:

0. Get your tools and workspace ready. Do your anti static stuff, like getting an antistatic wristband and connecting it to something grounded, or just grounding yourself on that. Get a static free workspace ready, get a good screwdriver, zipties, twist ties, sidecutters

1. Build the PC, so physically install the stuff.. There is too much to mention here, watch the vids for that and ask if anything is unclear to you

2. have another PC handy, where you made a Windows 10 bootable USB stick

3. Boot from this USB stick and install Windows on the drive you want to have it installed on

4. Install your videocard drivers

5. You could update your BIOS, but your X570 BIOS is already made for the CPU

6. Go to your BIOS and turn up the RAM frequency. If you have any instability with that, check for BIOS updates

That is exactly what it is, thanks also do I need the 4 pin (mobo to psu)? 

 

There is some notes ? to it.

The extra 4-pin CPU power connector is not necessary. I'd go as far as to say it's a useless gimmick, since you will never draw enough power to need it. The 8-pin is enough,

Also what other things do I need to do in a safe working station( anti wristbands... etc)

 

The building part is fun but the actual preparation have no idea what so ever( anti static work station)

Just get yourself a table or whatever. A wooden table works fine, just keep in mind you may get some scratches on it (minor scratches, but that can be bothersome to certain people). It's just don't work on a metal table :P a glass table is alright, but PC component can really leave some scratches on that.

 

Do you know if your power outlets what you live are grounded or not? (Sometimes called 'earth' too).

An antistatic wristband would just connect to the ground part of a socket. You can also touch this part yourself periodically to ground yourself. Alternatively, you can connect your PSU to a grounded socket and touch that.

Don't sorry too much about that though, PC component have good tech against static shocks, doesn't hurt to be somewhat cautious though.

I don’t know if my apartment outlet is grounded, but will be working on a wooden table in a carpet.

Best to check if they are.

Most modern houses will have grounded sockets nowadays... But I am not an electrician, so not sure how to test that.

Assuming the OP is in the SSA (aka USA), grounded outlets will have three holes: two slotted and one round. If you wanted to really be sure, hardware stores/home centers sell inexpensive outlet testers, like this one (I have a similar one that works the same way; I forget where I got it).

One has to be proactive, not reactive, to ensure the safety of one's data so backup your data! And RAID is NOT a backup!

three holes, also how big is the screwdriver?

(like the size of the screw)

There are several standard phillips head screw driver sizes. The sizes needed are #2 and #1. #2 will work for most screws on computer but, occasionally, he will run into a screw a screw head too small for a #1.

got to say Linus did a really clear description of “after you build it” boot the device you want to boot first then installed windows.

As far as other software I need, do I actually need other software than this?
