Just out of box or finished build, what things do you do before you start gaming? Also any go-to sites or vids you use?

I don't do much.

  • Update Windows/drivers etc.
  • Stress test it to see if anything is overheating ie: cooler not installed properly.
  • Stress test memory to see if faulty and will cause crashes during use.
  • Benchmark hard drives to ensure you are getting expected speeds.
