First build, but what comes AFTER?

I've seen some videos on assembly, but only a few touch on what comes after. Meaning, bios stuff. I've never had any experience doing anything like that before, and it quite frankly has me far more rattled than anything regarding putting parts together. Are the bios fine out of the box? Will they auto update, or is this a manual operation? 

 

My build

      AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8 GHz 12-Core Processor                  
      MSI MEG X570 UNIFY ATX AM4 Motherboard                  
      G.Skill Trident Z Royal 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL18 Memory                  
      Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive                  
      Asus GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 8 GB DUAL EVO OC V2 Video Card                  
      Cooler Master HAF XB EVO ATX Desktop Case                  
      EVGA SuperNOVA GA 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply

Also, I'm curious about case fans. My PC will be located in the basement (gotta keep up with stereotypes, ya know) where in the summer it averages about 20c. Would the stock case fans and gpu/cpu fans be enough? I won't be overclocking for a while.

I appreciate any and all feedback, thanks.

X570 is ready for the 3900X out of the box, no need to update to get it to work.  There will be BIOS update instructions for when you do want to update it tho.

 

20c ambient is cool for a PC, you're more than fine.  

 

Honestly, you build a PC and then use it.  Now if you want to talk about your build at all, it seems a little unbalanced. But I don't know exactly what you're using it for.

The most important thing to change yourself will be ram speed. Enable XMP/DOCP (whichever your motherboard has) so that your ram is not stuck at 2133 or 2400 or whatever the stock speed is.

 

After that you can try changing ram speed and whatnot, but it's not important for the function of the PC.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

As far as BIOS goes. if it's not broken maybe its best not to fix it. If something goes wrong then the motherboard may be left unusable.

 

Get your Windows install medium if you use Windows and install that sucker, make sure you got all updates before you move on. Then go to your boards support page at the MSI site, grab your drivers and install them. They may have instructions so pay attention. Go to Nvidia and get your 2060S drivers and if you have anything else that need drivers and don't got it automatically then go get those. 

 

Now is a good time to enable any XMP and from there you can go game or work or do what the computer is meant to do. :D
