Ok, haven't been able to put this up until now. The process here is not as detailed as the previous one so as to not to bore you with details.
This build is quite a budget one but works modestly for modern programs and games:
- Standard midtower case with a side window
- Core2Duo E2180 CPU @ 2.0 Ghz
- MSI 945 motherboard
- DVD-ROM unit
- Lite-on DVD/RW unit w/Lightscribe
- 2GB Kingston RAM
- 14-in-1 card reader
- 250 GB Seagate HDD
- NVidia 8500 video card with 512MB DDR2 RAM.
- 550 w PSU.
So, without further ado here goes:
Here are some shots of the case:
Nothing flashy, just something that works.
Let's start with restraining some wires:
Interestingly, this case did not have the speaker glued or screwed to the case itself. It is a completely separate component.
Sparing you the boring deatails, the motherboard here is already placed, so I'm just getting ready to place the processor here:
Processor and heatsink already in place here:
PSU is already in place here so I'm just restraining some wires so as they do not tangle or interfere during the rest of the process, everything is pretty much in place here so I'm just doing the wire job:
A final look at the completed set up and wiring job before attempting to turn it on:
And now the moment of truth, of course, I stand a bit back just in case it explodes
Aaaaaand...nothing happens. It didn't turn on, so, troubleshooting begins.
Silly me, after checking the connections I found out that I didn't put the switch on the back of the PSU in the "on" position. Yeah, I know, n00b.
And there she goes, all ready to work:
Hope you enjoyed watching the process.
