Hi, I’m Allen, and welcome to Expert Village.
Today, I’m going to show you how to build your very own Personal Computer. I’m going
to go ahead and take this, this is your motherboard. Now, it will only go pretty much the one way,
so you really can’t screw it up because you’ve got these ports which go towards the back
of the machine, and that’s how it’s going to go. You’re just going to go ahead and put
it in just like this. You’ll see it does line up if you look at the back right here, see?
The components line up and they’ll come right through there. Then, we’re just going to go
ahead and line these screws up. You see how these brass screws line up here, and as soon
as that’s all set, we can go ahead and get the screws and screw it down. This right here
is the base screw. It’s very short and will go into the brass and you have the little
part that’s going to connect right to the board and keep it in place because it’s a
little bit thicker on top there. I’ll go ahead and use that and put one of these in here
real quick. I have that in, and what I’m going to finish off these other holes. I have one,
two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, there’s nine holes so I’m going to go
ahead and put all those screws in. Same screws that will go all around that will hold the
board right in place for you. I’ll go ahead and do that, obviously you don’t need to see
that. Same idea just put them in place. Don’t over tighten them because they are the brass
things you actually screw into so that might break, so just be very careful.

    my case (coolermaster cosmos s) has a wire for front panel audio and firewire and esata, but on the asus q connector you can only put ide led power sw, and reset sw. where does the front audio and esata go?

    if you have already assembeled comp, look for a big aluminum or sometimes cooper piece sticking out of mobo. the CPU is under that thing. if you have bare mobo, look for a small square space with lots of needles in it.

    hey, you might want to tell them that you have to put your motherboard mounts on first. beginners dont know what "brass screws" are.

    wow you shouldnt call yourself an expert…no ESD antistatic mats or anything, as well as a magnetic screwdriver…this vid shows nothing but screwing in a motherboard and possible frying it without even knowing, theyres more to installing a motherboard than screws….fail.

    Absolutely correct. He didn't even say anything about ESD precautions at all.
    So if i didn't know the rules and followed only his video, i could easily damage something and never know until i tried to power it on.
    maybe these videos aren't for beginners?
