Putting together my new i5-2500K/P8P67 Deluxe System: Help! - Page 4

Yeah, you have to push down on it but it will lock in eventually.

I use the dot method and it works for me. Try it first and see what happens...

As for the clamp, I would tighten until you feel it start to "resist" and then maybe turn it a quarter turn. It is really hard to explain using words but you will see..

I understand what you mean. Thank you!

I am going to do that now. After that, the PSU and the GPU go in.

Two questions before this thing goes in the case...

1. Is it OK for the power supply to just lay on the desk? Should I put it on a box or something?

2. I am going to plug my monitor in the GPU. What am I looking for when I turn this on? What is the sign telling me I am good to go on putting this thing inside my case? Is there a beep or is it BIOS coming up on screen? I rarely turn on a PC without the HD as the #1 boot. Am I just looking for the BIOS options? I've never done this before so please inform me.

Thanks for the tips.

1) Yes, the PSU is fine laying on the desk, just make sure the fan entry and exit are not against the desk, so the PSU can breath normally.

2) If you connected the Speaker into the motherboard, you should hear a beep sound to indicate that the motherboard posted, then you should see the BIOS logo, and then it will probably tell you that no Operating System was found.

Cheers,
kcuestag.

Hey, guys. I just posted my problem in the Motherboard forum. I have no idea how to connect the power cords from the Corsair AX850 to the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe.

I've connected the CPU, cooler, Ram, and GPU. The wall plug is not in the outlet.

I've read both the Corsair and ASUS manuals and I can't understand either of them. I don't know what to do. I've connected the 24 Pin MAIN on both ends. On the end that goes to the PSU, there is another plug hanging from it. The manual doesn't seem to say what to do with it. I find both manuals lacking in detail for first-time builders.

The 580 GPU has it's plug but I don't know where to connect that either.

The plugs are not attached to the PSU, they are separate. It comes with the following...
1 x Main connector (20+4Pin)
2 x 4+4-Pin ATX/EPS 12V
8 x Peripheral
12 x SATA
2 x Floppy
4 x PCI-E

I am gonna continue to read the manuals but I don't have the balls to turn it on and see something fry.

I thought it would be very simple but the AX850 has a LOT of cords and the back is full of ports. I am at a loss right now.

Please give input. Thanks.

The motherboard cable is a 24-pin ATX connector, so you should fit all the 24-pin and use that cable hanging from the 20pin cable, so if you connect it, it will fill 24-pin.

The 8 (4+4 for you) PIN 12v ATX cord is your CPU power and should be plugged in at the top of your motherboard somewhere, mine is right with the top of the I/O backplate. If you are going to seriously overclock and have 2x 8pin on motherboard you can plug both in, and if your cable isn't long enough you should get an extension with some of your parts, I can't remember where I got mine, I guess motherboard package maybe!

Deverica Wolf, here's a picture of your motherboard;



As you see, I have labeled the 4+4-Pin 12v ATX CPU connector, and the 20+4-Pin ATX Motherboard connector.

Remember you are meant to fill out all the 24 pins in the ATX Motherboard plug, as w ell as all the 8 pins for the CPU power using the 4+4-pin cable.

Hope I could help you out.

Thanks everyone. 1+rep to kcuestag for the pictrue (if I could give you a rep. ) Someone suggested that I put the motherboard in the case before I turn it on so the mb is grounded and I could risk damaging it if I don't. I don't want to risk ruining anything so I think I'm going to do that. I might to call ASUS and I'm sure they'll want it to be in the case.

Note: I just tried to remove my 24-pin from the mb and it's stuck. :/
I'm shocked by this as I haven't even turn it on yet. I put it in right...I guess it must really like it's new home.

That is that I was talking about; on the left. The top and bottom cords are attached to each other. I guess they both go in the PSU but I was confused.

Anway, I have two 8 pin cords: An 8-pin to two 4-pins, and an 12-pin, in which 4 of the pins are blank (just holes), to two 4-pins. The 8 and 12-pin ends go in the psu and the two 4-pins go on the mb. Does it matter which one I use the on 12v port?

You could use either cables, I used the 4+4-Pin cable all the time when building PC's, so I would stick to that.

I'm glad I could help you, if you have any other question, I'm here to help you out.
