Recommended Things to do with MEK1 Gaming PC after first Power Up2018.01.30 11:45 AM
So you've unboxed the ZOTAC GAMING MEK1 Gaming PC and did the following:
- Installed the two stands (these keep MEK1 stable so it doesn't easily tilt over...bad)
- Installed the two Wi-Fi antennas
- Hooked up the bundled ZOTAC GAMING Mechanical Keyboard and Gaming Mouse.
- Place the Gaming Mouse on the bundled ZOTAC GAMING Mouse Pad
- Plugged in the power cable to a power strip or wall outlet.
- Hooked up speakers/headphones and monitor (HDMI/DP/DVI), and Ethernet cable (not needed if you plan to use Wi-Fi instead).
We hope you enjoyed the unboxing experience. We worked to make it special.
What do I do now? Power up the MEK1 Gaming PC. Slide the transparent Front door down to get access to the Power button. Press the power button to turn on the system.
Let it load and do its thing to get ready.

Make sure to select GeForce 10 series, GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, and Windows 10 64-bit from the drop down options, click start search, click on the latest GeForce drivers (usually the one at the top), click on Agree and download. Run the setup once the download finishes.
