How to install a motherboard in a case

information   Information



For this you will need:
* A screwdriver
* Some screws which should have come with the case or motherboard to attach the motherboard with
* A motherboard
* A case


warning   Warning

Remember to get the right case for your motherboard! If your motherboard is a mATX (micro ATX) you will need a case that has the holes for that sort of mobo




Remember always to discharge yourself before doing anything like this! This is done by touching the metal inside the case.
Also make the screwdriver touch it as well, so it is discharged as well
Also, use standoffs if necessary. The standoffs insure that the mobo will not touch and short out.



Installing the motherboard

1. Remove the side panel from your case

2. Remove the old silver plate from the back, and put in the one that came with your motherboard

3. Now place the motherboard to match the screw holes in the case, and the silver plate at the back

4. Screw the screws in, but be careful, only screw till you meet a little resistance as you dont want your mobo to crack

5. Thats it. Your done installing the motherboard now, now you need to connect it to the PSU and the rest of your parts (tutorials on how to do this will be available in some months)


Finishing up

1. Put the sidepanel on again

2. Screw the screws in

Thats it, it's that simple.
Good luck to all, if you got any question please do ask them below in this thread

I had to use metal standoffs when I installed a mobo for a friend. I didn't see this mentioned, but I think it is fairly common.




Excellent Tutorial.

Sergio, you can edit it to include something like "use standoffs if necessary". The standoffs insure that the mobo will not touch and short out.
