Need Help Putting my computer Hardwares together!!!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
HEY GUYS!! My computer stuff just came home today, the last package. Anyway, i want to put it together, but this is the first time i build a computer, so im having trouble understanding how the wires go. I do know a bit about computer, but not hardware wise ^^

My build are:
Centurion 534 Case
Evga 8800GTS 320mb
Gigabyte DS3 rev.1.3
Patriot 2x1gb extreme performance Ram
320mb Segate Sata 16mb cache HDD
Samsung Dvd sata burner
Corsair HX520 Watts PSU
Intel e6600

This is everything i have. Anyway, i start by putting my CPU onto the board and then to the case. Next i add the PSU and then the HDD and Lastly the DVD drive. Now, im unfamiliar with today wires, so i have no idea where it goes when it have more than one end on the same wire. ^^ the only one i know is the GPU wire, lol.

Unfornately, i dont have camera to post some pictures, but if anyone familiar with Corsair HX520 and Gigabyte DS3, please help me out. I'll check this post every 10 minutes for comment and instruction. Thanks alot guys, help a noob out ^^.

The Corsair has:
2x sata connector cable with two sata connector heads
2x PCI express connect cables
1x 4 pin peripheral power connector cable
1x 24 pin main power connector, 4 pin + 12v connector and 8-pin EPS12v connector.
2x y-adaptor with 4 pin female peripherals power connector at one end and two female small 4-pin (1x for Floppy, 1x for Fans)

Now!, where do all these connect to and which head or end do i use? and where does it connect to on my mobo?
Death to SONY!

I have the Gigabyte DS3. It's a sexy board.
  1. Bascally, open the side of your case.
  2. Put down the brass fittings that will hold the mobo screws. (There's little holes drilled already. Match them up with the spacing on your motherboard)
  3. Then put your motherboard in and screw that down.
  4. Next put on your CPU. Take off the plastic cover on the socket 1st.
  5. Place the CPU in. Can't mess up here as there's notches. Only 1 way to put it in. Push the little metal lever back down to latch it shut.
  6. Put AS5 or whatever thermal paste your using on the processor.

    (instructions here: http://www.arcticsilver.com/arctic_s...structions.htm )
  7. Put the CPU Heatsink/Fan on. I'd recommend using a screwdriver instead of trying to twist them by hand. (assuming your using the standard Intel heatsink/fan with the twist tabs I hate lol )
  8. Hook up the white cord coming from your CPU/Heatsink to the 3 pin connector label CPU_FAN (right above your 1st RAM Slots)

  9. Place your memory in the memory slots. If your using dual channel they have to not be placed directly next to each other. Basically they need to be on the same color slots. (mine are 1&3=yellow 2&4=red)
  10. Now put your hard drive and CD drives in and screw them down. Plug the sata cables in to the backs and then to any of the yellow sata connections on the board. (note: you will need to plug a sata power cable OR a 12V 4 pin connector but NOT both. Your PSU probably has a sata power plug rather then 12V 4 pin plug.)
  11. Now put your Power supply in. Be careful not to drop in on your mobo! You can always put you PSU in first if you want but I think it's easier to get the mobo with it out.
  12. Hook up the biggest connector that looks like a rectangle with 20 wires or so coming out to the plug labeled: ATX (to the right of your 2nd ram slots)
  13. Now hookup your ATX 12V (small square plug) to the place above your CPU socket labeled ATX_12V
  14. Plug in your other power cables to the back of your drives. Make sure you do NOT have a sata & a 4 pin 12V plug as this can ruin/damage drives.
  15. Gently put your Video Card into the PCI Express x 16 slot. (mine is light blue and has a small release tab on it) Plug in the power plug for your card. (may be 6 pin plug or 4 pin 12V depending on card)
  16. Put in your sound or network cards or any other cards going into the mobo in the appropriate slots.
  17. Put in a floppy drive if your going to use one and hook the cable and power up. Cable goes to plug labeled FDD next to the long rectangular ATX power plug that had 20 wires or so


Check out my finished photo. For reference. GL and don't be affraid to read the instruction manual!

Beeps --------- Problem ----------- Possible cause
"5 Beeps----- Processor error ------ Bad processor"

Have you plugged everything in? Make sure that your RAM is seated properly. Also, make sure that you plugged in the power cable, and the extra power cable on the corner. Take a picture and post that too. Take out your processor, and re-seat it properly. Make sure that you have thermal paste on it. Seat your Heatsink and extra cooling. make sure that extra 4 pin power plug is in.

Did you plug in the square ATX12V plug?

In the 2nd picture it's the black/yellow cord just above and to the left of the CPU/Heatsink. (step 13)
