Chapter 4: Installing The Mainboard In The Case

After you’ve installed the CPU, heatsink, and RAM to the mainboard, it’s time to install the mainboard in the case. Read the mainboard manual to see if any jumpers on the mainboard need to be adjusted. Usually, the board will be all ready to go.

It’s also a good idea to familiarize yourself with the various connectors on the mainboard, especially the small pin connectors to the case, such as the power LED and reset switch. When the board is installed in the case, it might be harder to see the pins and the printing on the mainboard. So, it’s good to know what goes where ahead of time
