Success and final Upgrade

The motherboard installation was a success. The best part was not having to reinstall Windows 7. I simply had to make a few adjustments in the ASUS UEFI and then the machine just booted to the desktop. Sure I had to verify my copy of Windows, but that was hardly an inconvenience. I also had to make some minor tweaks in the Task Scheduler, but overall it was a delightful experience.

A few weeks after that change, I implemented two other upgrades to complete my ideal machine.

Changing of the Guard, Part II

My ASUS P8P67 and  Intel i5-2500 have served me well, but it's time for an upgrade.

I'm installing an ASUS Maximus Hero VII and an Intel i5-4690k. Wish me luck; it's my first install.
