Exactly what I needed to know.
The "start connecting the rest of your build" part is where I need the help. I don't know where all the other parts connect. But I'll find it on YouTube.
Thanks a lot!

Thanks PPMguire! Again, and for everything.
I took the old Mobo out so this shouldn't be too hard.


Also curious if I can turn it on enough to see if it runs? Or will I need a GPU with this?

Also need to find my windows 7 key and disk.

Default Help me rebuild my Gaming Rig.

Can I also state how I hate my case? Too big, too bulky, doesn't even look good. The Limited edition can shove it.

I feel like I'm driving a dump truck to work.... And I work a desk job, lol

So pretty darn sure I just roasted both my Mobo and processor.

Was kinda asking for any videos or tutorials showing how to place a Mobo onto a case, then also placing the processor into the Mobo.

I just dropped the processor in place like I thought was shown in the instructions. Pressed down with the metal rod that's used to secure it and heard and small crunching of metal pins and now I am pretty sure I destroyed what I waited so long to have sent to me 👍👍 A+++

Take the CPU out and look at the pins - are any bent?

If some are, but not terribly, you can try straightening them back out again with the metal tip of a mechanical pencil. I've done it on a couple CPU's before when people tried to install them incorrectly.

How much pressure should I be putting on the metal rod to clip it down? A lot?

I feel like I put too much and bent all the pins on an angle

If this looks right. I'll push down the rod and keep going.

Yeah you'll need to put a bit of force to push the rod down.

My first time I did that, I was a little worried I'd damage something too. But as long as you have the CPU in the correct orientation in the slot, it's fine.

I really apologize regardless.
I have no experience with this but am eager to learn, and willing to spend some cash if I make a stupid mistake.


I have been taking sooo much time and care into cleaning my case and fans. I freaked out a little when I did this.

My old Mobo and cpu I took out and have here is much different, I think.

The cpu has a bunch of pins that fit into a socket type of thing on the Mobo.

This one seems like the pins are pressed up against the cpu.

I may be far out in left field. Either way I'm going to wash my hands and go for it
