How should i start building my pc? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Uh, those 3 pins connect to the mobo, yes, and they shouldn't fry it, they're designed to go have a direct connection.

Arch@ngel: Thanks i just readed the links you gave and i will use it when im building my pc but what do you mean with spacers/standoffs.?
The spacers (also known as standoffs) look like this. Once you've screwed them into the case (or motherboard tray if your case has one), they'll look like this.

Watch this (all the way through if you have time). At 1:47, he talks about motherboard spacers.

One other thing to note: the I/O plate (also talked about in the video linked above) is often incredibly sharp on all 4 edges, be careful not to cut yourself when installing it in the back of the case, it can sometimes take a lot of force.

lol, I always forget to put it in before the mobo, so I always have to take everything OUT again. But yeah, never cut myself, but they take some pushing to get seated correctly.

On the 1st . I like to prep the mobo. Get the CPU installed. Use your Arctic Silver and attach the cooler. Depending on the size of the cooler and mobo - It can be a real pain to install it once it's in the case. Forget about wores and stuff for now and just get the mobo preped to go in the case.

On the 2nd workspace. Prep the case. I find that it's best to put the PSU in the case first. Once again - depending on size - It could be nearly impossible to get the PSU in once the mobo is installed. Get your opticals in and secured as well as your Hard Drives and fans. Once again - do not plug any of the wires in just yet and just fold them out of the way.

So - now that you have your mobo completely assembled on one table and your case fully assembled on another...now it will be pretty easy to combine the 2. Put your mbo in the case and get the moutning screws secured.

Once the mobo is in the case - now you can start routing your cables and wires to the proper components. If you wait to do the wiring - now it takes less cable-ties and you can route wires in groups.

Once everything is wired and installed - I like to fire her up with the side panel removed to make sure everything is spinning etc.

That's the way I do it.
This is a great way to put things together. This is the exact method I have used on the 4 computers I have put together in the past.

grmnasasin0227: Thanks i readed it somewhere on a forum so it isnt true

Arch@ngel: I think my case hadnt got such things but i didnt look very well because i needed to send it back

I will look out for the I/O plate but my chassis had 1 already i think.So i should remove that one and install my motherboard I/O plate?

Harobi: Thanks for the confirmation
