New build Part Installation order?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I bought a bunch of parts for a PC, but I'm new to building them and have no idea what order to install them in? I have all the typical PC parts and was just wondering if someone could tell me what to put in, in order from first to last? I'd be very thankful.

Outside Case
1). CPU
2). Ram
3). Heatsink

Inside Case
1). Fans
2). PSU
3). HDD/ODD

After Installed Motherboard
1). Graphics Cards/ Add on cards

Some tips
1). Find the routes for cables before you install the motherboard into the case. find out what you need from the PSU and tuck the rest of the cables out of the way behind the motherboard tray.
2). Use plenty of zipties to keep things tidy. you dont need tons of cables straying from one another if they are all going to the same place.
example: SATA Cables, Graphics card cables etc
