Stopping here for tonight. Have to put the SSD in and the graphics card. Wire everything up and i'm done. Hopefully it posts tomorrow. Might do something about the ATX connector also.

I'd have put the videocard on before putting the motherboard in the case.. But good luck tomorrow.

I always wait with the video card, and have never even heard about anyone who puts it on while the motherboard is out of the case. Might be good for first time builds while you have the whole case on its side. 

But yeah, as @Sméagol said, use your motherboard/case manuals. They are the best thing you have! Did you get the USB-connector in place eventually?

It "went in" but it didn't do so willingly. I'll check if my front pannle USB 3 works if i can get a post screen. If it doesn't work then it's not a huge loss.

My child is complete. Just need to stick the pannles on and power it on for the first time. I'll do the cable management thing later.

Good news: My boi lives.

Bad news: My CPU cooler fans don't look like they're running.

EDIT: CPU fan issue is fixed, seems it popped out of the headder when i was throwing cables through it.

Works fine now, Still need to manage my cables, my back pannel won't fit back on because of the mess back there but i'll sort it tomorrow. Good for airflow though ;)

Anything in particular you are planning on testing it out with?

Well it's a Titan Black, pretty old card. I'll stick GTA 5 on and see how it goes. I'm not expecting high fps from anything too taxing untill i can upgrade the graphics card.

A nearly half hour interview from IGN with Gabe Newell on the Steam Deck, well worth a watch:

For anyone who has Amazon Prime Gaming, Battlefield V is now free to claim there. Activates in Origin so yours to keep even after cancelling the subscription.

I think the most mindblowing thing seen in these previews is the fact that you can use the Steam Deck screen as a second monitor when you dock it!  That's so awesome!!!

This is gonna be fantastic for productivity when you dual boot Windows! A full PC that you just chuck in your pocket and get a dual monitor setup on whatever screen you plug it into! :D

Anyone ever use one of those monitor light bars that you attach to the top of your monitor? Just wondering if they're worth it at all.

Chapter 2 of Deltarune gets released for PC and Mac tomorrow.

I'm definitely gonna be replaying Chapter 1 to refresh my memory.
