What do you guys think of this Mother Board, it's cheaper than my Gigabyte by $10, can't find it on New Egg though...

 

But yea thanks for that, the system should be in tommorow actually! It's in NC now [about 200 miles away] so that's good to know. Although I've got an EOC tommorow so that'll make my day super long!

You dont need to do the mobo psu trick. Ive done it many times and if you do it wrong....

All you need to know on where to connect the case pins to the mobo is almost always in your mobo manual. If it isnt tere is also almost always abbrevakted words bellow the connectors that tell what pin is what.


Think of head fi for a moment when you look at that review. That is like the fotm. Sapphire is a absolutely developed GPU vendor but its making a start into mobos. Should you care to get it? Really no. I prefer developed brands as opposed to saving $10. That mobo almost definately works but to me its still a fotm until it proves itself


REMEMBER THE BRASS STANDOFFS. I almost always forget initially. The moment i start to place the mobo in is when I remember which isnt bad.

Are all your parts comming from the same warehouse?

The case is from some where different than everything elese, and WHAT ARE BRASS STANDOFFS... PICTURES

 

So your telling my just to connect the case power on pins to my Mobo without the case inside... is the cable long enough?

 

But yet it doesn't sound to safe to do that trick on my first board <.< I might play around with it on some old crappy MOBO's we've got sitting in our shop one day

 

It should be in tommorow! So I get to build tommorow around 3:15 :D

 

I'll only have about 2 hours though, but I can come back to it later that night. 2 hours should be enough. It's my first build, but I've done cleaning and dis assembly and re essambly of rig's b4. Still though I'll have it up and running by Friday Morning!

Wait what? You place the mobo in and connect the pins. And dont do it randomly. Read the manual!


Google brass standoffs. They come with a pouch with the case. You then match the holes on the mobo to the holes on the case and screw in the standoffs and then put the motherboard on it and screw that in.

1) I know that, I'm saying if I'm doing a test boot outside the Case to make sure that the parts work what's the best way to get my mobo on without doing the PSU trick

 

2) Ok yea that makes sense, and trust me I'll be reading through manuals,

 

I read an article on it, plastic and Brass Stand offs, the guide suggested using one plastic so you can keep the board still while inserting the screws into the other brass ones

 

nice tip that's for mentionint

Me.... I do it the regular way. I dont have a plastic so i just screw it the regular way. Its not hard or anything.


Dont flex or push down on the motherboard. Back when i first started over half a decade ago..... I almost broke a mobo in half doing that. Grante it was a semi old one...... You shoulda seen how the mobo was flexing!! :0


All from one place?

Make sure your standoff's in the right places, if in the wrong spot it can short circuit your mobo.

 

All the best.
