Hello Everyone,

I'm looking for a tutorial that demonstrates how to install a Power Supply Unit safely and also explains the connectors (ideally with photos)

I understand a google search will bring plenty of these up. I asked here purely in the hope some members would be able to give me a trusted source or one they had used before and found useful.

Thanks for your help,

Kind Regards,

Matthew :thumbsup:

Kind Regards,

A powersupply will contain many connectors. Lets discuss this step by step.

1. Unplug power from system.
2. Disconnect all previous connections from old powersupply.
3. Unscrew powersupply from case and remove the unit.
4. Insert new power supply, and secure with screws.
5. Plug in your 20/24 pin connector to motherboard.
6. Plug in 4 pin AUX power connector (usually near processor).
7. Plug in devices such as Hard Drives and CD/DVD rom drives. (Most are Molex (4 pin) or SATA (Flat) connectors)
8. Plug in Video Card Connections (If Applicable). This is usually the 6 pin PCI-E or Molex Connections.
9. Seal up PC and plug in powersupply.
10. Turn on and test!
