NZXT Hush Mid-Tower Caseccokeman - May 2, 2007
Installing the components that you chose to use is one of the highlights of any new build for the custom PC enthusiast. The first thing on my "to do" list is gathering the components to install and keeping them at arms reach. Now we get to start the work. The components I will be installing are listed below.
- Intel E6600
- Abit AW9D-Max
- 2 x1 gb Buffalo FireStix
- ATI 1900XT
- Samsung DVD burner
- Western Digital 160gb 16mb cache Hard drive
- OCZ 700watt Game Xstream Power Supply
Install the motherboard standoffs that come with the case into the holes needed for your motherboard. Next, I'll install the I/O plate that came with my motherboard.
Installing the power supply next keeps me from having to fight with the large heatsink that's being used in this build if I were to install the motherboard first. With a large heatsink I do all of the motherboard assembly out of the case and then just set it into place and attach it using the screws provided with the case
Install all of your drives using the tooless mounting hardware. Start by removing the tooless hardware and slide your drive into yourhe bay of choice. Index place the retention mechanism into the drive slot and drive mounting holes,twist to lock and you are done with mounting your drives. Insert your memory modules and remaining hardware into place, wire it up and it's off to the races we go.
