Where does everything go? • PSU • CD /DVD ROM Drive • HDD • Floppy Disc Drive • IDE • PCI Slot • Video Card • Sound Card • RAM • Real Time Clock • CMOS • BIOS • CMOS Battery • Processor (CPU) • Heat Sink
Motherboard Motherboard Here is an example of what a motherboard will look like before and it has been put into its casing. Motherboards tend to come in industry standard sizes(ATX, Mini ATX, Micro ATX etc.) so that users don’t have issues with putting them into a case.
Central Processing Unit CPU Here is an example of what a processor will look like before and it has been put onto the motherboard. This is a very fragile component so great care must be given when installing this into its correct slot. There is a designated area on all modern day motherboards which allow for the removal and placement of CPU’s (as seen in the image above).
Hard Drive Disk HDD Here is an example of what a Hard Drive Disk will look like before and after it has been put into the case. All modern day computer cases need to allow for at least one HDD/SDD as this is where to operating system is stored. Also with the HDD will be either a Parallel or SATA cable for which to plug into the motherboard.
Power Supply Unit PSU Here is an example of what a Power Supply Unit looks like whilst it is inside of the case. A lot of PSU’s need to bought separately however there are some cases which come with basic ones pre-installed, which support integrated motherboard components only. This is found on the outer area of the case and will have designated spot for which to be put into.
RAM RAM Stick Here is an example of what RAM will look like before and after it has been put onto the motherboard. There are usually two RAM slots on a motherboard as standard, but there are also others which support more than two.
Heat Sink and Fan Fan Heat Sink Here is an example of what a heat sink attached to a fan looks like, the component tends to be a small fan with a metal grill underneath. These components can either be found together (as shown in the image above) or separated into the heat sink and fan. They will have a designated area just on top of the CPU to keep its temperature down.
Integrated Components (ports, Cache) Cache I/O Most motherboards come with integrates features such as a USB ports and audio jacks. So that users don’t have issues with putting them into a case. As you can see from the picture above, there are many types of integrated components which can come with motherboards as standard.
How to put it all together • Connect All of the mentioned apparel and then proceed to connect a monitor, keyboard and mouse and optionally some speakers. • The guide at the beginning of the document will allow for users to find which ports the components will connect into. • If the components aren’t faulty and they are connected correctly then the computer should be ready to turn on and use.
