Installing the Bgears Tarantula into the chassis of your choice is no different than any other power supply. Initially, you will need to power down and remove the old power supply or start from scratch with a new chassis. Insert the Tarantula into the chassis and attach it with the provided screws.
One thing to watch out for is to make sure that if you mod your case, make sure you have adequate clearance for that new blowhole fan. The chassis in this build was previously modded and provided some clearance issues.
The modular connections are simply a push together affair. You only need to use the connections you need and leave the rest of the connections alone. This way you have fewer cables to make a mess in your chassis.
After getting the motherboard and all of the peripherals in place, you can route all of the connections to their respective homes. Motherboard power, optical and hard drives, video cards, fans, they all need a connection.
