Build 01 - The Life of a Prodigy

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Built my Prodigy in January 2013. This is my first ever PC build. I've been a long time Mac user for about 6 years now. <--- wow just realized that. I still use my Macbook pro 15" for college. Well I needed more power; so i built a PC.  I did not like where the power button was located so i moved it to the front. The metal that the PCB is attached to fits perfectly snug in the recessed portion of the plastic cover for the bay. I cut the metal to length stuck it in and said, "IT FITS LIKE A GLOVE!" I will probably order a another front panel or plastic piece so I can have the holes machined or drilled more properly. Overall I think its an ideal location. 

parts:

- White Prodigy

- P8z77-I Deluxe

- 3770K (not yet OC)

- (2) Cougar... pwm fans

- 128GB  Samsung SSD 830

- 1 TB WD 3.5"

- 320gb Fujitsu (hackintosh)

- 23.6" Samsung SyncMaster S24B30BL

 

update: 12/20/2015

- Corsair Air 240 Black

- Samsung 840 Evo 120gb

- Samsung 850 Evo 250gb

- WD 2TB Green

I like what you did with the 5.25 bay, I thought of putting a slot loading DVD drive in there and cutting a slot in there. IMHO it looks better as a continuation of the white front. Well done.

package finally arrived. lets find out whats inside!

9530FF9E-5A4B-43CA-8CFC-C2914DB33528-102

 

since the H220 ships with a bit of an excessively long hose, I shortened the hose to more of an acceptable standard.

screwed and plugged everything back in, went to power it on and an error message is presented. "chassis intrusion." so I began to take it apart, again. unplugged the graphics card, unpluged the 24 pin, tried to unplug the 8 pin but it was rather stuck. I had managed to plug one of the 4 pin half on the connector and half outside of the connetor. so replugged that in, plugged everything else in and powered up with the monitor pluged into the onboard video. booted up like a charm. so I then plugged my graphics card in and reconnected the video cable. pressed the power button, machine powered on then off in <1 sec. i gve it a funny look and it then powered on but there was no picture. powered off, plugged cable back into onboard video and repowered on. same thing happened and no picture. what the heck is going on?

Being of some what intelligent, my brain told me that there was something wrong with the power. A. Something on the board was shorting out, B. not enough power, or C. I plug something in wrong again. Well I took it all apart again, and upon closer inspection I found 2 drops of coolant on the mobo. I pulled the cooler off, grabbed the alcohol and q tips and magesticly dabbing the board. Looks like ill have to wait a bit before I put the mobi back in the case. This also gives me another opportunity to try and apply thermal past a little better. Went 10% over first time. Should be able to get it right this time.
