It is quite easy to assemble your PC on your own. This is especially true for people who play video games and online casino games, as well as video editors. This is because you will want to have a PC that is capable of completing your tasks.
Steps to Creating Your Own PC
You have to follow the following steps:
- You have to shop around for parts. This is the most difficult and also the most time-consuming part of the building your PC process and this happens long before you start searching for screwdrivers and other stuff.
- Get prepared. You have to make sure that you have everything that you need to fully install your PC before you sit down to start assembling it.
- Install the Power Supply. The first thing that you have to install is the power supply. You however will not need it till much later but it simply has to be the very first thing that you install.
- Install the Processor. After the installation of the power supply and you will have to install the PC’s central processing unit. The CPU will be there to process all of the instructions that it will be receiving from the software that you will be running and also from other computers that you would have installed as well.
- Install the CPU Cooler. The CPU cooler is there to try and cool down your PC when it is overheating. Overheating happens as a result of the excessive use of the PC so you have to make sure that you install it.
- Install the RAM. The RAM is the motherboard of the PC. It has to be there no matter what. Without it, there is no PC.
- Place the I/O Plate. Every PC motherboard has a specially designed I/O plate that labels each of its ports and it also helps to close off the back of the computer from dust and other intrusions. With this you have to align the plate right side up, then place it inside the wide space that will be at the rear of the case, and then pushes it in hard till it then locks into place on all four edges.
- Mount the Motherboard. Some PCs might have preinstalled motherboard rises and these will be there to prevent the board from directly touching the metal case. You have to place the motherboard in the case and see where the holes there will be corresponding with which holes in the case and then screw the risers that will have come with your case into those holes.
- Install video card. This goes into the longest PCIe slot that will be there on the motherboard which is the first in the series of slots.
- Install your drives. The manual for your PC will give careful instructions on how to do it depending on the size of the drives needed there.
- Connect your cables. When all of your hardware has been installed you will have to then start linking everything together. You will have to run your data cables from drives that will need them to the very appropriate ports that will be on the motherboard.
