About to move system parts to a HAF-X

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am about to move from a Cosmos to a HAF-X (YAY!). I need two things.......

1: A guide I guess to moving parts from one case to another......

2: Some things to know before going on this endeavor?

Thanks =D

Just unplug the power first, let it drain the power out of everything, and ground yourself. After, that, just remove it and reinstall in the HAF-X. It should start back up as if nothing happened.

One important thing to remember when moving to a new case is to ground yourself like gregory121295 just said

And the other thing to remember is you don't have to uninstall any components from the motherboard Like ram,cpu,cpu coolers,ram coolers etc

and of course disconnect any wires from the montherboard that has anything to do with the power supply and the case

Unplug all plugs from mobo, unscrew, rescrew into HAF X, move PSU and drives over, reconnect stuff, done.

Have all tools needed ready before you start, saving from random searching later.
Make sure you fully unplug the rig, and let it sit for a little bit before starting up the transfer.
Be ESD safe.
The rest is pretty much mentioned above, however I would recommend setting up a plan of attack in the new case. Each case will have it's own little in's and out's, and planning cable management and everything is good before you start (even if you need to change it later.)

I like to take times like these to reapply TIM, blow dust off all components (cpu cooler fans, gpu fan, etc.

Grats on the upgrade!! I recently went from an Antec 902 to my 650D. Fully enjoyed the "rebuild" hehe
