If every thing began up as expected and you efficiently got into the CMOS setup display, just let it sit there whilst you take out a flash gentle and inspect the system as it’s working. Make positive all of the fans are working easily and not producing any unusual noises. If the HDD gentle is caught on, shut down and reverse the connection.

After installing the standoffs, align the motherboard and screw in all the bolts. Again, do it in a diagonal manner and maintain equal stress across all of the bolts. Take out the RAM stick and lock for the RAM slots in your motherboard. Usually they’re labelled, and it must be easy to find them.

Pretty much your whole cables will run behind your motherboard before popping out to plug into it, this is also the best way to ensure a clean looking build. But, should you’re using an ATX case + ATX mobo then you need to be good to go with out altering a factor. Step 1 is all about getting some components mounted in your motherboard and in a position to be installed into the case. It’s much simpler to go this route than attempting to put in factor after the mobo has been mounted. Now that we have a clean workspace, it is time to start slowly unpacking your elements. Personally, I wish to unpack everything utterly before moving on, but feel free to unpack issues as you want them.
