Hi guys Can anyone out there assist me in connecting everything together inside my sons new gaming PC please?

Everything is sitting there waiting to be connected but unfortunately there was no instruction manual with the new tower , psu, or motherboard.

Please can anyone out there help me? My psu is a G7 power extreme 780 watt and the tower is a Z11 plus from Zalman. My motherboard is Asus M5A78L-M LE

I owe you big time if u can solve this for me , cheers

David

What I would suggest that you do, is have a look at a few YouTube video's on computer building and assembly. By doing so, it will give you an insight of what you are taking on, and how to do things from the beginning.

Trying to explain in a technical helproom, might become confusing, especially if things do not seem correct.

Then when you have done that, any problems might be easily explained, if you get stuck.

You Tube hints. Check out the other videos on the right as well. It will give you an idea.

Cheers for the help guys. The PC is now all connected.

How can I connect my fans so they all work? There is only one input on my motherboard, and none of the psu outputs are compatible. Again any help is appreciated

you can buy adaptors from (say) Maplins to convert the PSU outputs to ones suitable for the fans.

Maplins is no longer a cheap place to obtain items from, except those on promotional offer. Perhaps have a look on Amazon, eBay might be a better choice.

I buy most of my gear from those two sources, in fact ordered a dvd disc drive from Dabs via eBay on Thursday, it arrived next day. The same item from elsewhere was much dearer.
