I know I should just follow the manuals but I was hoping for a basic overview guide putting the installation in order just to make sure I don't anything up. Does anyone know a up-to-date guide (unlike the ones I've found :damn which I can use for my core 2 duo build (coming monday )
Haynes do a manual actually putting a system together is easy-peesy tbh, put the motherboard in, then the memory, cpu, hard drive, cd drives, PSU, then the heatsinks, then wire everything up......then youre ready to go
yeh but thats no fun and they dont always tell EVERYTHING. I remember reading a review of a lubic DIY case kit and the reviewer got soo annoyed because the manual would say do 1,2,3,4 and he would do these steps then it would say and don't forget to do this before step 2. So he had to undo steps 2,3 and 4.
That said you're right its a doodle but when something goes wrong it helps to have a forum to turn to.
