So, I just finish the build. I know I’m going to be adding a lot more stuff to it, but at least it’s up and running now. All the parts seem to be working. I’m able to turn it off and on without a hitch. It took me three days to complete the entire rig and I know that sounds like a lot of time for some of you especially people who are much more experienced at this than I am. So, I definitely enjoyed the experience and you know wouldn’t take it back for anything in the world, but it did end up taking me a lot longer than I was expecting. So that first day when I started opening everything up, I basically got through building the actual PC and I put it all together inside the case thinking I had all the right parts and then realizing I had missed a few. I missed out on the Samsung EVO 850 SSD, which is probably one of the most crucial pieces. Luckily, I was able to order that with next-day shipping and then was able to install that within the rig and then that night I was thinking, “Alright, I’m gonna hit the power button. I’m sure there’ll be a few things off, but I’ll at least see some power. Some fans might be whirring.” Hit the switch and absolutely nothing happened, and that gave me a lot of concern. I was freaking out because being a newbie PC builder I thought either I had damaged a part while installing it. One thing I will definitely do when I build my next PC is I’m going to build all the parts outside of the case before I install everything just to make sure everything runs appropriately. I was really surprised but most of the parts, they all connect to the motherboard, which obviously makes sense to me now, but at the time I had no idea that everything kind of connects to that motherboard. So if you have like a piece of cardboard, you can build everything outside in a safe environment still and just make sure it actually runs properly. And you can do that right before so that you’re not going to spend hours and hours installing everything inside the case like I did, and then realize you’re going to have to then remove pieces and figure out what’s wrong and all that good stuff. Another piece that I, you know, completely neglected on…definitely look into maybe getting a DVD drive. They’re really, really cheap. I got mine at a local electronics store for about 20 bucks. And the reason why I needed one, which I didn’t realize this would ever be a thing, but a lot of the parts that I received, their drivers were still on DVDs and because I didn’t have access to the internet that was something that was really important to me. So, I’m sure there’s a workaround for it out there but it just made my life really easy. So the other thing that was really surprising to me was the wiring of everything. I thought it was going to be pretty self-explanatory through a lot of manuals I’d get from the motherboard and that was the culprit, that was the reason why my computer wasn’t booting up to begin with. And it was a really simple problem but it took me hours to figure out what it was and it was the power switch cable that wasn’t attached properly. There’s a plus and a minus cable and I just had them switched and that was it. So it’s really funny that that one little simple thing took me hours to figure out, but great learning experience. And yeah, just something to warn you of. And then don’t be too concerned if you don’t have a lot of manual information that’s provided in the pieces that you buy because I felt like I had very little information to go off of and I was still able to figure it out. The one thing that was really interesting to me was that it would shut down or go to sleep every once and a while and then when I’d go back to wake it up, it would not wake back up. I had put one of the fans in the wrong place, literally the main fan on the CPU was on the opposite side of where it should be. I didn’t know this and again there was no indication of where that fan should be placed. And now my computer runs even faster and also it boots up like almost immediately. So I haven’t had any issues and I’m hoping that was the solution. It definitely seems like it was. I thought I could be limping by on my Macbook Pro for even longer if I wanted to and that this was kind of a luxury for me. But now that I’ve been actually using my PC and editing with it all of today and yesterday, I’ve really realized that I didn’t know how much time I spent loading programs and making sure all the media is there and, like just actually playing media real time, especially 4K video, it’s mind-blowing. I can’t believe I haven’t been doing this sooner. I have a feeling this is just going to absolutely speed up my editing process considerably just because everything is working properly.
