My build
So far I've received my monitor and cooler. I plan on using this as my guide. The only thing I'm nervous about is wiring. If I hit a snag, I'll post questions in here. Once everything is built, I'll post pictures and specs.



Desk arrived today... UPS guy sent it to the wrong apartment. Luckily the mailman told me he saw my package and he helped transport it back to my place for me. The desk had some minor damage (I was able to bend the steel back) but I guess thats ok since the shipping was free. Newegg status is still "processing." I'll continue to keep you all updated :p.

I got all the parts today. This is my progress so far:

I just need to add power to everything. My motherboard only has one CPU fan spot so I don't know how I can power up the 2nd fan. I'm overwhelmed and I'm gonna call it a night. I'm worried that I won't be able to plug in everthing because I don't have much room to work with...
I redid my wiring and I think I did a good job. I also got a computer chair for an early birthday gift Smile.

Before (and it was a lot worse once I plugged in everything):

Just take your time and read your manuals and you will have no problems. I was a bit nervous about the wiring too, but in the end I had no troubles. Looking forward to seeing pictures, good luck...

I'm not sure what's going on with newegg. Money has been taken out of my banking account but my status on newegg is still "processing."

RE: My build
It probably takes a day or two for their bank to process it. You can always contact their customer service to check.

RE: My build
Newegg order is still "processing." I contacted a rep on the site and he said they received my check but they are waiting for it to be cleared by my bank. I told them the money has already been taken out of my account. He said he will email accounting and get back with me. My patience is growing thin.
I was told it takes 3-5 days for the check to clear. They received it on 4/28. Do weekends not count?
