PC Assembly - Getting the case ready

Getting the casing ready

When preparing to build a PC make sure to have the following: a phillips screwdriver, the necessary screws and the various cables and connectors.

There are some simple guidelines that should be followed:

  • Never screw things too tight!
  • Never use force!

Firstly we must fully open up the casing, then place it flat on a large surface with enough space to work comfortably, finally remove all plastic blanks from the drive bays at the front of the computer.

Note: A case usually comes with a power cable and a set of screws.
Screws with a fine thread pitch are normally used for floppy disk drives and CD-ROM drives. The more coarsely-threaded screws are used for attaching hard drives.
