Windows 7: Building your own tower.

24 Aug 2014   #81

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

I purchased the same Corsair 600W PSU that you have about a month ago (mine is modular, but basically the same). I ran into a problem with the 24-pin cable. The plastic part is not very slick and it was really hard to clip onto the motherboard. After a lot of tries, I decided to go to newegg and get an 8 inch extension cable. It is a slippery plastic and it slid right on the 24-pin cable and then slid on the motherboard very easy. You might not have to do that, but if you run into a problem, that is a solution. Good Luck.

Change your system specs to reflect the new build or at least tell us the parts list of what you used.

Any major surprises or head-scratching?
