Question about Computers & Internet
Step 1: Installing the motherboardMake sure you have all the components in place and a nice, clean and big enough place to work with.
Put your antic-static wrist ******** to prevent your components from getting affected. Make sure your hands are clean before starting. First we will be installing the motherboard which is a piece of cake to install.
Step 2: Installing the CPUCPU is the heart of a computer so make sure you handle it properly and do not drop it or mishandle it. Also try not to touch the pins frequently so that they do not get dirty. Get hold of your motherboard and CPU manual. You need to place the CPU on the dotted white patch of the motherboard in a particular fashion for it to fit properly. There is a golden mark on the CPU to help you assist. Consult both your motherboard and CPU manual to see which position it fits exactly or you could also use try all the 4 positions.
Got the thermal compound? Now is the time to use it. Take small amount of it and carefully apply it on the top surface of the processor. Be careful not to put it on the neighboring parts of the motherboard. If you do so clean it immediately using the cloth.
Tip: Thermal compounds should be changed once every six months for optimal performance.
Step 3: Installing the heat sinkAfter installing the processor we proceed to installing the heat sink. There are different kinds of heat sinks that are bundled with the processor and each has a different way of installation. Look into your CPU manual for instructions on how to install it properly.
Step 4: Installing the RAMInstalling the RAM is also an easy job. The newer RAMs ie. DDR RAMs are easy to install as you don't have to worry about placing which side where into the slot. The older ones, SDRAMs are plagued by this problem.
If you want to use dual channel configuration then consult your manual on which slots to use to achieve that result.
