Default bball's first comp build (pics)

Okay here is my first of many posts for my first build on a computer. I haven't gotten all the parts yet but I did get my case today. Everything else comes tomarrow.

Is there any possible way to start the system and check the psu to see if it actually works? I am getting an after market psu but I want to check to see if the fans and lights and all work.

Opteron 148 Venus core w/ matching Venus heatsink fan

Hmm only thing i can say is hook an old mobo up in there and plug the fans up.

I got that same case and I use the PSU. It has worked great for 2 months, it looks great too. No problems.
