    Will my DREAM PC work?

    I'm thinking of getting the Lian Li TYR PCX2000 instead of the Antec Twelve Hundred. Expensive but years ahead then any other case to me. Should I opt for it?

    Will my DREAM PC work?

    Ok, thanks for tips, I'll change the SSD and the PSU then. I wonder what computers need 1500W PSU's then. Thanks, but I'll still need your help sooner or later!

    Will my DREAM PC work?

    Ok, I've got my old PC working but I can't get onto Windows XP. It says BOOT DRIVE FAILURE, ENTER SYSTEM DRIVE AND PRESS ENTER. Does that mean that I have to put in the Windows XP installation CD? Just making sure, I'm going to start buying tomorrow.

    Will my DREAM PC work?

    This refers to 4. 4. Ok here is a picture: http://www.qvs.com/images/sata-power.JPG The part on the left, I have 2 of them coming out of the PSU which I don't know where to connect. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- This refers to 3. 3. I can't give you a photo by I'll describe it the best I can. There is 2 thin cables coming out from the PSU, one black and one blue. They both join into a black part which has 3 pin holes in it. You wouldn't be able to put it in the pin socket things if there are 2 horizontal rows of pins unless you turn it upside down. That's the best I can give. Sorry guys. Example of the row of pins: ::: Can't fit there ^ if you put it in normally. Have to put it upside down if you were to. Thanks!

    Will my DREAM PC work?

    Right now I'm reassembling my old PC. (Have to take my old PC apart, put it back together, make it work then dad buys DREAM PC) Well my big fat long cable (from the PSU) has 2 ends, one is the one that goes into the socket above the IE Ribbon sockets and one is the 24-pin connector (which I can't fit in it's socket so far). I've connected the big fat long cable into the socket above the the IE Ribbon sockets but I also found a 24-pin connector from the PSU (not the one that is at the end of the long fat one) and connected it to the 24-pin socket. But now, I have 5 cables from the PSU not connected to anything. 1. One is for the PCI-E but I don't have anything there so I don't need to connect that right? 2. One has been labelled fan only. Does that mean the system fan or the CPU fan, because I can't find anywhere to plug it. I also DON'T have a system fan. So I probably don't have to plug that in right? 3. One is this cable with 3 pin holes in it. No label on it so I don't have a clue where that goes. 4. Two of these cables which look like the power connecters on gaming consoles. No labels on them so I don't have a clue where they go. Thanks!

    Here is the manual of my old motherboard: http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherb...?ProductID=2159 I've connected the main power cable to the old fashioned large socket above the IE Ribbon Cable sockets on the right side on the motherboard instead of the 24-pin connector (left side of the motherboard) which is to the left of the CPU. Is this all the only cable I need to connect from the PSU to the motherboard or do I need to connect every other cable?

    Will my DREAM PC work?

    Ok wait, I mean I've got this long fat cable which is the power connector, but you can also use the 24-pin power connecter instead of that but the 24-pin power connector won't work, so I've put in the long fat cable connector thing. That's the only thing I've connected from the PSU to the motherboard. My old PC only had 512MB of DDR2 RAM and no GPU by the way. Thanks!

    Will my DREAM PC work?

    So Bundywow, your saying that the NH-D14P has CPU fans (I know that it has fans) , is a heatsink and a cooling system for the entire PC? Please answer yes or no =p Ok, I've tried to fit in the 24-pin connecter but I can't get it in. I asked my dad but he can't. The 24-pin can't fit in because it has 2 square parts diagonal to each other and two with the top in a semicircle (diagonally to each other again) Dad and I have tried all of the ways we can put it in but it won't work. The only way when it fits will if was the something go through the back of the motherboard lol. So what I'm saying is the 24-pin connector will be in the right direction to fit into the motherboard is when it's facing you. I've just used the other connector instead so it doesn't really matter. Anyway, can anyone please answer this question? But now I have a few problems. I've got every single cable from the PSU not connected except for the main power connecter thing. Is that ok? (It was in the last post) Thanks!

    Will my DREAM PC work?

    WOOT, found the manual for my motherboard on the Gigabyte website. Now I can put everything in. No need for question 4 now. Also, question 5 I figured out, (thanks to the manual) they're both can be used for either one. But now I have a few problems. I've got every single cable from the PSU not connected except for the main power connecter thing. Is that ok? The 24-pin won't work for some reason - Put it into the big one(24-pin cable only works when facing you, so it will never fit into the motherboard) Thanks!

    Will my DREAM PC work?

    Ok, so now I'm pretty sure that I'm getting Asus VK266H 26inch monitor Also, before you said to get the ATI Radeon HD 5870 but now you want me to get the ATI Radeon HD5770 (Maybe 2)? I'll swap and stick to one ATI Radeon HD 5770 if that is the case. But I'm still confused by some things. 1. Is the NH-D14P a cooling system, heatsink, CPU fan or is it all of that? 2. Shouldn't the Antec Twelve Hundred like have fans? 3. So Master_Scythe, you say I should be using RAM that has 1600mhz for overclocking? I'm thinking about getting G-Skill [Ripjaws] F3-16000CL9T-6GBRH RAM. (DDR3-2000-PC3 16000) - Website : http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=188 Let me make sure tho, (check the website) that that RAM has 1600mhz? 4. Ok, I got all the cables but they all fit into every darn pin! I can only look at the bottom and check which one goes where. But the only one I'm sure about is the speaker. This is probably the most important question now. 5. I've got IE Ribbon cables for the optical and hard drive and they are exactly the same, they both fit into these 2 sockets on the motherboard, but one is green and one is white. No labels so I have no idea which one goes where. Thanks guys for your help so far!
