So, im done. At least i think i am anyways.
Those are photos of my wiring, if anything is wrong
let me know and i will fix it before booting up for the
In red, does anything need to be plugged in here ?
Also the the SATA cable only has one metal piece.
Does the metal side go into the drives ? HDD/Cdrom
Did not see a plug for the PWR_LED, then i have the
POWER_SW in PWR_ON and the other two match to
Power cord with fans attached, and the power to the
CDrom driver also plugged in.
Only real problem ive encountered is that the heatsink
is too big for the mobo. Had no idea and no one really
said anything about it. But in those photos, the clips
on that side i couldnt put in on the bottom, its still on
pretty tight, then one corner is pressed against the
point of the other heatsink.
Does it matter if i have the 5870 in the PCI-E slot 2,
instead of the Primary Slot 1 ? In the manual it says
if youre using two its x16/x16 so i assume it doesnt.
I chose slot 2 cause it looks like it would have a much
better air flow to it.
Last question, how much of the BIOs settings need
to be changed ? If i can leave it at default i probably
will and change at a later date. Hate asking too many
questions in such a short time span.
If you took the time to even read all this, thanks.
Appricate any advice, even a "good to go" would be fine.
