What accessories do I need to build a computer? Attached computer installation diagram
DIY computers have always been very popular among computer enthusiasts. Computer enthusiasts, by assembling computers with their own hands, can not only understand hardware more deeply, understand internal structure of host computer, but also learn how to install system and other knowledge, which can bring a lot of fun. Today we will explain installation process to you.
Step 1: Install CPU and heatsink
Remove motherboard from motherboard box first. When motherboard leaves factory, CPU base has a plastic protective cover and a metal clip.
Open metal clip of CPU base and fully open metal clip. When installing CPU, pay attention to aligning cutout of CPU with protrusion of base.
Place clip under cover and secure fixing buckle. After locking clamp, plastic protective cover will automatically come off.
There is 1150 on heatsink base, fasten buckle towards 1150 and install heatsink base on motherboard.
Insert a plastic screw into base of heatsink to secure it.
The bottom of heatsink is pre-coated with silicone grease, don't forget to remove transparent cover on base of heatsink first.
Attach fasteners on both sides of heatsink to base. Of course, this is a bit of a hassle. Fasten fasteners on one side first. Then grasp main body of radiator with one hand and press buckle on other side with other hand.
Note, don't forget to connect heatsink power interface to fan power port on motherboard "CPU_FAN".
Second step: install hard drive memory, power supply
After installing heatsink, install memory.
When installing memory, pay attention to cutout on memory. Pull up on latches on both sides of memory slot and insert memory. Once memory is properly installed, plastic latches on both ends will simply secure memory tightly. (Could be "click")
Then install SSD. This time we are using an M.2 SSD and installation is relatively easy. Insert M.2 SSD and tighten screws.
After installation is complete, place motherboard in case and proceed to install power supply.
Connect to 24-pin motherboard power supply, power supply bayonet must be aligned with protrusion of motherboard power supply, if inserted upside down, it cannot be inserted.
Connect to motherboard with 4 pins for power supply. Let's talk about it here, some motherboards have a 4+4PIN CPU power supply, you need to insert all power supply interfaces, no matter which power supply is solidly designed, you can easily find insertion direction.
Step 3: Install discrete graphics card and chassis jumper
When installing a computer, we usually install graphics card last, because graphics card is relatively large and it is inconvenient to install it first.
First open PCI-E graphics card slot on motherboard. Then align graphics card with PCI-E graphics card slot on motherboard, pay attention to gold finger gap of graphics card, and insert graphics card into graphics card slot.
Don't forget to power up video card, otherwise it won't be able to boot. In order to avoid accidents, it must be inserted tightly.
Finally, connect case jumpers and insert them according to marks on motherboard. In case of ship, jumpers include: USB interface, audio interface, USB 3.0 interface, switch and LED indicators, etc.
This completes installation. Have you already learned this?
