In part one of this series, Dan Wellman explained what parts you will need to acquire to build your own computer system. In this part, we'll actually put the system together.
If you followed along with the first article, you now have all the parts you need to start building your own computer. I'm sure you're eager to get to work, so once you have everything -- including the necessary block of time -- bring all of your parts and tools to your work area, and let's get to work.
Lay the case flat on its side with the removable panel off and the open cavity facing skywards. If both sides of the case are removable, the inner chassis of the case that is open should be facing up. There will be a series of holes at the bottom (these will be at the side of the case when it is in its normal upright position, but will be facing the ground with the case on its side). Your motherboard and case should have corresponding holes on them; into the holes on the case, screw the pillar-like screws that came with the motherboard.
Seat the motherboard into the case on top of these screws, and screw in the dome headed screws through the corresponding holes on the motherboard, into the pillars beneath the board, making sure that the little rubber washers go between the board and the domes. The motherboard should be completely separate from the case, resting only on the pillar screws to avoid shorting the board when the power supply is switched on.
