Hi again, I got the Zalman fan to get hooked up but the golden nipples on each side are NOT tight no matter how much I turn it so I'm just going to pray that they hold on.
Anywho, so update on my computer building. I got the PSU, cpu, ram, Mobo, Video card, fan/heatsink all on and now I need to insert the DVD Drive, DVD/CD Writer, and my hard drive.
The hard drive was rather easy to put in but the other 2 drives cant seem to fit in from the back so I'm trying to figure out how to do it in the front. My main problem with building my comp is theres WAY too many wires coming out of my PSU and I don't know where to put them all! I see the PCI-E wire and I easily plugged thati nto my video card, got the main psu wires connected but theres still a TON more left and I have no idea where to put them in. I got a wire to fit into my HDD but on this online guide it says I need the IDE1 wire which I plugged onto my mobo but wouldnt fit into my HDD.
I'm sure you guys cant get a complete clear picture of my problem and it would be hard to explain so does anyone know a good online guide with LOTS of pictures and step by step instructions that a computer noob like me can learn from without confusion? I've been using http://www.pcmech.com/byopc/step/1/
which has too much info and no pictures so it was a bit hard to learn from and http://www.buildyourown.org.uk/pc_building/preparation/
which has pictures but only give about a paragraph per part so it is very hard to get info from this site. I am so tired of this, I've been working on my computer for non stop and after hearing so many people say this is easy it is NOT for a first timer like me BUT I hope once I'm done I can put it all behind and be happy with how my computer runs.
