Apart from the main pc components, what do u need to build a pc?

Go to solution Solved by LogicalDrm,

Apart from couple of people too picky or not reading the thread...

 

So you don't need thermal paste. That comes with the stock cooler, or most of the aftermarket coolers.

 

You need stable surface, with non-conducting material, good light and phillips head screwdriver. You need to ground yourself, but that can be done with anything metallic connected to wall socket. Like a desk lamp. Plus time and patience.

I have all my pc components i was just wondering what else i need to build my pc.

 

I know about thermal paste, but what else is there?

Optiplex X010 cases are amazing.

How about you list all the components first.
So we dont post anyhting you already have.
(Also shows some effort which in turn will generate more interst for others to react to)

When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

You need minium

cpu

Motherboard

gpu

ram

psu

storage

Ost coolers come with thermal paste pre applied or in a little tube

 

 

then you also need a case, fans

and a monitor and perferials

I could use some help with this!

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)

Just a screwdriver should be enough. A long one with magnetic tip should make it easier to build. Most coolers already come with thermal paste. You don't need an anti static wrist wrap if you touch the metal of your case every once in a while.

 

Also what did you pay for the 2600? They are often overpriced.

Thanks, for this nice list. Makes things a a lot easier.

 

That CPU cooler most likely already has thermal compound on there. (Not 100% sure but i've not seen a new one to come without).

You will need a SATA cable for that 2TB

An ethernet cable to connect to the internets.
And keyboard mouse and monitor.

 

But besides that and some software to run it all you might have most things you really need.

Thats fine. Right here they are like 200 which is the same as an 11400 which is much faster.
