Dream CPU build… Step 3
So far, I’ve listed all the components and installed the power supply in my case. Now comes the fun part… the mother board and CPU install
Here’s the motherboard, it’s an Intel BOXDX58SO2 Socket LGA 1366
As you can see, I’ve laid the Intel i7 CPU into the motherboard and just to the right of that, the 2x4GB of RAM have been inserted into the 1st RAM channel. (I will insert more in the near future as needed)
The last component to be installed onto the mother board is the video card. I will do this right after I install the motherboard into the case.

Now I’ll install the Video card
Next post I will cover installing the cooling system (involving some serious modification), the Hard Drive, and the peripheral devices.
