New PC saga continues: it boots, it runs, it's fast and pretty! It's also very loud, so apparently I get to change the CPU fan/cooler on Friday. Joy.

Also: This is the first time I built a PC, so: WTF is it with the lack of documentation / manuals? The mainboard and CPU and video card manuals were beyond useless for putting the thing together, and without the help of @rash I'd have been hopelessly lost.

Sure, some parts are obvious, and even I know how to install the memory, but other parts are less intuitive or just more dicey, and the instructions had a granularity of "Put in memory, CPU, video card, then connect everything, congrats, you're done!"

@rixx I've build quite a few desktop PCs over the year, but I still never know which way around I should install the power supply.
Documentation for this is indeed shitty x(
