Hi everyone, first of all, this was my first attempt on building a PC and I don't have much knowledge about Internal Hardware and I got the build from a friend. So he told me which stuff I should buy and basically I now tried to build it together with online Guides, manuals and so on.
Also, here are my PC specs (It's a Gaming PC):
- Intel i5 4670k
- Intel TS13X (Water Cooling, Closed System)
- Asus Z87-Pro (Motherboard)
- Coolermaster Silent Pro M2 620W (Power)
- Asus VS247N (Monitor)
- G.Skill DDR3 1333Mhz 16GB (RAM)
- Coolermaster Storm Scout II Adv. (Tower)
- Gainward GeForce GTX 760 Phantom (Graphics Card)
Ok so here we go, I'll just basically explain what I have done:
I screwed the Motherboard in and it was pretty straightforward. Then I added the i5 chip to the Motherboard. Also no problem, although it took a bit of force to push down the bar and I heard it shouldn't normally, but it fitted in so I thought it's ok.
I then added the RAM into the two golden slots (see image). I read in the instruction that that's the place to put them if you've got 2.
Then I went on and added the Water Cooling System. I removed the standard Fan of the Towercase and added the one from the TS13X. I must admit it was very complicated and took me about 90min in total until I finally got it. Then I screwed the Fan to the other Cooling thing (sorry no idea what that's called) and screwed it to the case. Also connected them together and pluged it into the Motherboard.
Then I went on to the Graphics Card and added it to the Motherboard in the golden slot (see Picture). I wasn't 100% sure if it goes there, but I seems to be the most logical place for the Graphics Card. Also, it's pretty big so I don't really see it fitting in the lowest one.
Moving on, I then added the Coolermaster Silent Pro M2. The main Power supply. I connected the massive cable to the Motherboard and the smaller one too. Then I connected it with the to the SSD, the HDD and the CD Drive. I used two of the 6pin cables that then goes into a 8pin and then in a 6pin and 2pin Cable (see Picture).
The grey part went into the Power Supply and the other 6pin into the Graphics Card and this I did twice.
For the finishing part I connected most of the small cables. Including the USB 3.0 cable, USB 2.0 cable, P+ LED, P- LED, HDD LED +, HDD LED -, Power SW, Reset SW
I didn't connect AC'97 and HD Audio because I couldn't find the place where they belong and I thought they're not essentially for the boot up process and I could do it later.
So having that all done, I then tried to boot up the PC. The Motherboard was flashing, the Watercooler was running and had a blue LED running (see second Image). Also, the Keyboard and the Mouse are powered which run into the Motherboard.
Now the main problem that I have, is that the Monitor wont get any signal. I don't know why. I tried 2 different Monitors with the same result.
Any help would be very appreciated.
