Some pointers on the assembly.
Install the CPU and FHS (Fan Heat Sink) before installing the MB.
Carefully match the mounting holes of the MB to the towers in the case, only use the matching towers and use no extra ones.
Oh... check for the correct screw to fit the towers... if you put a fine threas in a course thread hole they can be a bit of a pain
Also... make sure the heads of the screws you use to mount the MB are no so large that they dont extend past the metal ring thats around the mounting holes.

Make sure your MOBO is not siting directly on the case. If your case does not have 6 or 9 raised up points for the mounting screws make sure you use the stand offs (little gold or silver threaded pegs). If you need to use the stand offs make sure they are all in the right spot or you'll ground the MOBO. The way I do it is to count the stand off's and screws in to two piles of 9 ( for a full size atx board) and make sure i don't have any left over screws. Good luck and have fun, it is really hard to install stuff the wrong way in a computer.

It's like putting a puzzle together. Find out what goes where, jam it in, and hope you don't screw something up or have a piece missing.

put the ram and cpu and hsf on the mobo before you install it,

inside the case (well it was on mine) there is a sticker telling you that if you have micro-atx or atx etc to put the lil gold things in: and then a bunch of numbers

and then there are lots of holes with numbers on the case which i don't need to explain

MAKE SURE YOU GET THERMAL PASTE TO PUT ON THE CPU (just in case you forget)

make sure (if you have an IDE hdd) that the hdd wire is not on the same path as the floppy's, or lights or extra fans or cd drives as this may cause instability

and about the cd roms, the psu has one wire that splits into 2 molex's, thats specifically for the cd drives

you need a copy of windows to install the mobo and do a windows REPAIR not a clean install if you don't want to lose all of the music (if you are using an old HDD)

make sure that if you have a 20-pin psu and the mobo has a 24 pin thingamabobber or vice versa, get a connector to be save



and connect stuff into holes that look like it will fit

and if you are not very intelligent.
don't plug cpu fans into cmos jumpers (never heard of anyone doing this but its possible)

OH and the front side usb 1.1 and 2.0 and HDD LED's, usually they are lined up at the bottom right and you may need a magnifying glass to see the writing on the mobo and look for HD LED, FRONT LED etc. and connect the little wires to those

sometimes if the hdd led or something else like power switch button doesen't work its prolly because its reversed, so just flip it over and plug it in the same holes

basically its not as complicated as is looks, just open up an other computer and look around at everything and you might not even need instructions because usualy the connections are self explanitory

make sure you look at the writing around connectors on the mobo to see what it says

well thats my fitty' cents!
