Yes, could you answer this question?

This is what a fellow who helped me out told me in the Motherboard forum...

Is he right? It is on a box on top of my desk, away from water in a cool room. The cord was to be connected to a power surge protector. Is it safer to put it in the case? If I ruin this thing I can't get anymore money so I can't risk it. Should I put it in the case before I turn it on?

Well, he is kind of right, while the risk of it is not too big, it could still happen.

I never bothered to build my PC's out of the case, I always had them inside the case since day 1.

OK, I will do that. Putting the cooler on outside the case was very helpful for me, though. Just staring at the mb and getting a good idea of what I will be working with when it goes inside was very helpful.

I don't understand why my 24-pin won't come out of the mb. It would be helpful when I put it in. At least it can detach from the PSU...

OK, will do. Pictures will come later when I buy a better camera. Need more money. Maybe next month. I need time to pimp this out with led fans and such. :/

I will post if I have problems. Be back later...

BTW: Regarding the fan position, I put the GSkill Snipers under the fan but they're right under the fan; barely touching. They fit perfectly. I couldn't imagine any other ram fitting though. I lifted the SA as far as in can go which is not very much unless I'm doing something wrong. The fan can't go any lower than that; the ram keeps it from going down. I've seen pictures of people fitting Ripjaw Xs under this thing but I can't imagine how. I've also heard people say that they couldn't fit them, so I'm glad I found something that is fitting for me.

You get a much better understanding of fan/ram clearance when you have the thing in person compared to talking about it or looking at pictures.

There should be some sort of clip that you need to push to release the connector.

Yes, sir, there is. But it's still not working.

Would probably be easier to remove if the cooler wasn't there. I'll just wait until it needs to be removed and remove the cooler at the same time.

Like PowerTrip said, there's some sort of clip you need to push in the motherboard to be able to release de cable.

Sometimes it is a bit hard to remove it, I had one that was almost stuck and didn't wanna get off!

Yeah there is a clip. Don't be afraid to use some force as you will be surprised by alot of the components that will use some force that take out/attach.

OK, I did it. It took a lot of force and my fingers were hurting so I had to take breaks. It came off in the back first so I didn't think anything was happening but it lifted little by little. That ******* bugger! Maybe it will get easier over time. Heh.
