Hi this is Ron von Ron’s Tron tutorials. Today I want to show you in a compact and detailed way how to assemble a desktop ATX PC System. The following is a universal guide, because there are many different manufacturers, brands and variants of components and they are constantly changing I will not go into specific performance, but show a basic design that is applicable to almost all PCs , The order of assembly of the individual components shown by me has proven to me. I do not care about assembling as fast as possible, but I want to perform and show each step exactly. Other approaches are just as possible. The components I use are partly used, some new. Whenever possible, I try to reuse components such as cases, power supplies or hard disks, saving money and protecting the limited resources of our planet. I have this used PC case here that I want to use. So first all the old stuff has to go out. It is a standard case with 2 front USB ports. After the housing is cleaned, I first want to put in the power supply, which will later supplies all the components with power at the right voltage. I have two used standard power supplies and I will install the stronger one of them. I check the power output specified on the housing. It is also important that the power supply has the right connectors that will be needed later. I need an ATX connector for the mainboard with 20 or 24 pins, the processor power supply with 4 or 8 pins, and a SATA power cable for the SATA drive. Since I will use a simple passive cooled graphics card, it doesnt need an extra power supply. The power supply is placed in the area with the large opening, usually at the back of the housing and secured with 4 screws. It is important, that the fan, as well as the grids do not face against a housing wall. Because without proper air flow, cooling will not be possible. Since the mainboard is the basis of all other components, the entire system must be checked for the selection of the mainboard. The mainboard connects all other components. If you want to use certain features on your new PC, such as a fast USB 3.0 port, then mainboard must support this feature. If a motherboard does not have this function, even a fast processor or RAM can not change that. The mainboard is not supposed to touch the rear wall of the housing, therefore spacers must be installed. First we screw the mainboard spacers into the marked holes. First by hand and then i use a 5mm socket to tighten them. The mainboard manual tells you how many screws are to be used. Also check the Information directly on the mainboard slide. You can also arrange the spacers well after the holes in the mainboard. Next, we put the bezel of the back mainboard connectors into the back wall of the chassis. This part is supplied with the mainboard. I press the sheet from the inside into the gap until it clicks into place. Have it the right way around to match the connectors of the board. Then gently lower the board into the housing so that the connectors slide through the corresponding slots in the bezel. At the same time, the screw holes in the mainboard must overlap the spacers. Raise the board slightly so that the already installed spacers will not damage the mainboard from the bottom. This step is sometimes fiddly, but no problem with some patience. As always, you should not use big force here. Then screw the mainboard to all spacers with the housing.

Today I show you how to build a computer. Building a computer has many advantages. For starters you will save thousands of dollars, you also have the freedom to modify it to your specifications & needs – so you don’t end up paying extra for things you don’t need & will never use. It’s also extremely easy! No matter how much experience you have with computers, you will be able to build your very own computer in minutes!
