How to mount a new source or how to replace the old source - hardware guide

Hello friends, this tutorial will show you how to change a source where one replace the old one or simply make a new and must assemble source.
Motherboards desktop source (PSU) have to connect the two connectors, the first connector is ATX 20 or 24, depending on the age of the motherboard, older boards have connector ATX 20 pin and the us have ATX + 20 4. The second connector to be inserted into the motherboard CPU power is on, this connector can be 4 or 8 pin, depending on the age of the motherboard, older motherboards (or entry level) have 4 pin connectors.
After I connected the motherboard, and other components must supply such as video card, optical drive, hard disk, SSD, etc. A good source has connectors dedicated video card and SATA, unless you have this, you can use adapters from Molex (5V + 12V) PCI Experess (12V) or from Molex to SATA (5V), Molex website is 4 conductors, two black (mass), one red (5v) and one yellow (12v), depending on what use Molex adapter site can help. My recommendation would be to use these adapters only temporary.
Operation of changing source is not complicated, just patience and attention.
An operation that keeps the air flow in the cabinet, but the issue is cable management. It's about laying cables through the housing so as not to be impeded airflow for better cooling vital components. A housing with an interior wiring clogged air flow will be weak and thus a faulty cooling components.
When it comes to cable management, carcass quality matters a lot, famous producers (Antec, Corsair, LianLi, Thermaltake, Chieftec, etc.) facilitates mounting and cable arrangement so we can have a very good cable management with minimum effort.
Even a cheap housing, a resourceful man can do good work, that you and imaginative than cable lengths and of course the source.
This tutorial is part of a series of tutorials dedicated to installing hardware components that includes these video tutorials:
How to mount a CPU cooler and RAM on the motherboard
The difference between a good and a poor source, connectors, noise and cold start sources
If you do not already have a good source, you can follow this tutorial dedicated achitionarii a source:
Buyer's Guide, how we choose the source computer
Before you plunge watch closely tutorial, beware of components and parts on the motherboard, some may be sensitive, too careful jacks sata of hard disk drives or optical drives, these jacks are very sensitive and can break very quickly, especially if you draw a sATA cable attached.
Above all, empower yourself with patience.
Good luck with that !

    Congratulations tutorial, Cristi! Would have to show how to make a Wire Management, or leave many cables disposed of there and not give good air circulation in the cabinet.
    I noticed that source that you took it off was a Delux even have the courage to yourself a similar source in such a PC?

    • Delux site I mounted 2-3 days before (temporarily), normally system that functioned with a source Fortron Epsilon of 500W unfortunately fan it made an unbearable noise and anyway Vori to ask him another source, quieter now do not even realize you turn on your PC.
      I will speak about cable management on these tutorials, it is generally difficult to do so without a good source and a well designed casing.
      Each PC has in other parts, placed in different ways and does not know if someone will use a tutorial specifically for cable management.
      With a little imagination you can hide cables to great art, no matter what shell you.
      I saw a few months ago live a corsair housing and cable did not see any when I opened the lid, one that deserves a system configured 10, the truth is that the housing Corsair had done almost all the work.

      Check this out!
      Cables source (positioned below) come immediately behind the right pane and go where you need them.

        Yes, you're right about a tutorial related to arranging cables, housings vary from one user to another, but it's worth something to present concepts related to this topic. I own a housing Segotep G2R Raynor and I can say pretty much helped me inclination such housing for cable management, source pity that we do not have the cable sleeve, but I do not mind the future may have to buy another.

    useful for many, but it would have been more useful if you have shown us how to make jumpers, this really would have been a great help, however, and many thanks! :)

    Yes, you're right about arranging cables, housings vary from one user to another. I personally own a casing modest (it is a Segotep Raynor G2R) helped me a lot when it came to Wire Management, shame that I sleeve cables from the source, but I do not mind, you more layout .

  4. I am glad that this site exists. It's much easier to understand how to work with a program or how to mount a video source if explain unless someone explain in writing.
    Thanks for boys tutorials. We salute.

  5. Thanks to you now I know in addition to what type of components to head (due to the realization of numerous giduri hardware) and now you know you mount but I optimize my system because VIDEOTUTORIAL site! THANK YOU for everything you do! :)

  6. Very good ... But I would like to ask him if I'm not good to have a cabinet with bottom placed source ???

    • It depends on preference and budget, often carcasses are more expensive because the source below the standard out of the box and everything comes out is more expensive.
      At a cabinet source below need to have a good source, the cheap cables were too short to get them back.
      If the body is not quality source positioned below will fill quickly with dust.

  7. What has this configuration unit (cpu, gpu, ram etc)?

  8. Simply adore guides its genre the shot with the camera, not see something in Romanian, majority are in egleza and those are few (not that those are not good, but it's different when you see a compatriot of yours doing -a). When you are doing a modification on the system, ex. Changing source not hesitate to make a tutorial, I personally love to watch, being passionate about these things. Guides and hardware are we waiting, and perhaps unboxinguri (because we do not have any of these side in Romania) or reviews on what components you bought (or whatever else you this world of IT). I want to configure a system and I (on paper that I will buy when I have money). What I want to ask is: For an Intel Core i5, and the remaining parts rather performing as good motherboard: ASRock H67M, 1155 socket? Should I take by brand or by characteristics, because it has everything that I would need (future proof). Another question because you know your sources: For the above components plus a pleasant 4Gb RAM, a SATA hard 3, 1 Tb, and an SSD Solid-State Drive (SSD) Corsair Force GT 2.5 "60GB, SATA, CSSD- F60GBGT-BK plus casing complete with a cooler and all kinds of light, but the future can not currently persormanta the video card, just what source would you recommend? I know it's important component, but his heart will not let me give more than 200 (250 constraints heart) on a source, so I ask you. Thank you, I beg you to answer 2 porpozitii (yes / no to the motherboard, and a source there at random to get rid of me

      Depending on the video card that you purchase, you can look OCZ ZS Series after a Cooler Master GX 550W or 450W. That base plate is pretty crowded, alternatives such as Gigabyte GA-PH67-DS3-B3 or ASRock H61iCafe. I can say if you like overclocking will need to purchase a motherboard chipset P67 (disallows IGPU) or Z68 (OC + IGPU).

    I never understood why the novel is ...
    We want to have ... to be strong but not spend ... we want to keep but do not give money, we want to be strong but if you can inexpensively ...
    There is no such thing! Want to fly to Mars? You need a super rocket that's clear .... if not, than to do the job in half or get lost halfway times not even the end never get any from where you left, then go "on hand" cheap improvisation on hand frost and so will you ... part only headaches, frustrations and carpel ugly and the physically and that will give you the anxiety and mentally.
    If you want the best PC but do not want to give money to a healthy source drive you, then you want to you that you will buy power from the moon in a month and more to lose than you earn.

  10. Note 10 pt and pt tutorial site, it's very helpful .... wait a tutorial for conecatrea those cables more thin: power, restart, led hdd, led power, even mother struggled to find good combination when we changed the source, nor have we led for hdd, not lam found ... AMEA I managed to do for power and restart.

  11. Cristi told us in tutorial sourcing as a source must not be under 150 lei. I want to give 200, 250 may lei a source. I did not say I wanted most powerful computer, and may not have much money so we take the most expensive components, but I put some questions Cristi, because I like what I do and I know he knows well what do what. I do not think you should come to me now and do any of you out there censored by points. There are a source of 80 lei approx. 1 year and a half and I had absolutely no problem with your computer. I guess if you pay 200 lei will be at least slightly better than the present.
    @AdrianGudus And I suspect that's so novel (with a little because it is a common noun) nice talk and he'll respond with hostility, and instead lose the 5 minutes talking with your hatred could stand the 5 min and help.
    My questions are still valid for Cristi, we found this source: Source Recom PowerEngine 550 Plus, 550W, think it's pretty good? Thank you!

  12. Why write that were uploaded videos on youtube 233 and 232 just lists?

  13. I'm the best ...... VERY USEFUL

  14. Welcome. 2 weeks ago I acquired a new computer system with the following configuration: AMD Athlon II 455 X3, 3300MHz Socket AM3, Box, Kingston 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 CL9 Non-ECC DIMM (Kit of 2) Asus M5A99X EVO Socket AM3 + Seagate 500GB, 7200rpm, 16MB, SATA3, Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GT430, 1024MB, GDDR3, 128bit, DVI-I, HDMI, PCI-E Power Booster 520W Inter-Tech. A few days after I bought it when I was confronted with the following problem: when I let go after staying off more than I 2 hours video signal to the monitor (monitor stays in stand-by) and no LED from the mouse does not light, though fans start and the LED housing is lit. This system (pc) recovers only after I leave 3-4 minutes on then give it a reset it from normal, showing the image from asus motherboad and then Windows boots normally and I go smoothly - mouse, sound, video, I have no problem in games or anything etc. I guess the motherboard is not alimeteaza video card and USB ports, probably because of the technology that allows it to save power while the PC is off and the power lasts until alimenteza video card and USB ports is too new and there still does not know how to start. I reset the BIOS, I removed the battery, I did downgrade the bios, nothing happened, the problem disappeared.
    I sent the service, the people there were replaced with a new source source the same model, but I have returned after the first start after a break of 2 hours again raised about the same problem. To be the source? source to another more expensive, and will pay the difference? worth or another to be the problem?

  15. Hello Cristi, I looked at the tutorials troubleshooting PC to call it so made you and I have liked, especially since it's new and it's filmed and understand better. More on this subject.

  16. Good tutorial and helpful, thank you.

  17. Hello, I tried to pull my source, but my case is microATX, and is somewhat cramped, I loosened the screws, but not out ... if it's stuck on the other side of the housing where the cover is not taken as an out ..?

    By the way, are you going to go with an ATI 5830 1GB 600W Deluxe?

  18. I found the culprit for the defect had - dvd rw - probably the motherboard will not feed properly UTA when it is online or dvd rw has short somewhere without him PC starts normally every time, maybe has some same defect and ii will help this comment.

  19. Help. I have a dilemma and I'm afraid to not burn the motherboard. I got new 500W source. Erection problem. In that the source contains 2 4 plugs holes (the holes and one near 20 separately). The other shades are separate cables, one has separate black 2 2 yellow. You put in the motherboard of the 2. Motherboard is ECS nForce motheboard 3 a939. Ask ptr as the motherboard is a bit spaced 2: the 20 with the 4. Enter only the 20 and jack 4cu separate the yellow and black or 20 with plug stuck???? thanks

  20. As a source connect with 20 pin to pin motherboard 14

  21. Cristi good, I want to know if a motherboard supports any type of source, because I want to change the source that I 300w (max) 450w one of which was a drive AMD. Are there any risks?

    Hello,
    I mention that not open your computer or how to get into bios, I went to a workshop where it was discovered that one of the plates of ram (I had two) do not work (as a Scotland remained so less ram , opened computer without any problem). In addition they said I have some swollen capacitors that have changed and we must change the source as being old (has any 4 years) swollen capacitors and can damage other parts (God forbid it be the motherboard). Source still works well in the sense that no problems visible from outside the enclosure (I have part of reboots or blue screens due to a possible malfunction of the source as seen on the net) and my question is if indeed old but still a source works should be changed for endangering other components or only those in service have shown excessive zeal, I do not mean that they wanted to sell merchandise (and its sources were on sale) but I'm whacked with prejudice, saying that any source, regardless of who it is, must not be kept for more than two years to be changed even if it works. It's not about money but do not want to change just for the sake of changing it so do not find the source of the connectors that have flopy and color and grid that I want.
    Thanks a lot and congratulations for the site. Not a boast free: five months ago I searched on google how to make a stick bootable with Windows 7, after about 9 hours I thought of writing keywords in Romanian (write in English to avoid me appear in list results forums Romanian full of cursing and understanding to all who actually end up boasted endlessly, and by distorting the original intent of the person who opened the topic to), so I got over my own rule and so I found this website, watched tutorial is so clear and precise that I solved my problem without additional knowledge as needed (all I had to know was listening and reading when necessary).
    All the best .

    Hey we did in the past a tutorial on the subject, as you can "stress" source with the help of Everest. If you flutuatii high voltage then you can consider to change it, especially if it's a source stock which weighs more than 100 g so cheap sources, pans or firecrackers as we call them are usually found PC carcasses that come complete with source. They really are some dangers and do not recommend their use over a long period. Even if they appear to work, are made extremely bad and very bad quality material.
    Please do not get angry easily but I shook my head when I read "... to have and grid color and I want it." It's a source that you put into the case, put the cover and who knows when I see the "face".

      Adrian Hello and thanks for the reply.
      No, of course I do not mind. Being in your place maybe I would be high, staring, one eyebrow. Not that I try to appear less nezdravan but allow me two times to meet your strange assertion source: call someone a few years ago when I wanted to save something from a CD into the computer, because it seemed unruly " technique "copy of the CD - pasta calculator, then with the introduction of Internet and the related viruses equation, the need to pay again because someone had reached several hundred thousand 3 once every week - one month (if I had done rate to another computer) to reinstall the system and "security" of, I grabbed one to get the document and learn all sorts of things, collecting many memories that the computer itself has become a personal Amin try to preserve it in a form as close to the original (a source to remain visible on the back side and should look like the original, as a restoration when there are no physical original cousin, entropy bat-one to blame but the fresh must look the same). Recall that I have tried seem soundly and excuses that eventually were not only 2 rows but more was a way of saying. Finally mention that the proposed source is a power guillotine 350 link w, I think a heavier percent being bought computer components.
      All the best .

    And all for Christ, to find tutorial about Everest, wrote in SEARCH box in the upper right: "Testing and stressing the processor and memory with Everest and super pi" press Enter and you will find the tutorial

    • Hello Adrian.
      I mention that I found a source that looks like the original and I and mounted it yourself, your tutorial giving me confidence that it's not complicated. But I have a question, a curiosity. I opened the old source case (the memory) and I noticed swollen capacitors, hence the question of curiosity: if those capacitors instead (and clean dust) I can say that I have a new source? Like I have done a restore ancient source. Or there are other components in the source (even if my eye has never seen slouch much there, except some threads) components, being older, make her old just change the capacitors neintinerind source?
      Thanks for your time .

  25. It made me a k-boom on your pc and got very little smoke, and since then no longer be the source of guilt or porneste.sa can throw it PC?

  26. Super tutorials. I managed to "fix" only various computer problems meu.multumesc so much !!!!!

  27. Hello ! I'm sorry for allowing me to bother you with a question, a prayer! I do not know what happened to the laptop keyboard, I can write all the letters outside the letter e, when I press on the key I do not write the letter e, but when I open google in the box where I have to write what I want to look for appears eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee exactly as I wrote it and I can not stop it .. What to do, please help me .... Should the keyboard go off? I did not spill liquid on my laptop just wiped it off with a cloth and a bit of glassy solution.

    • Adrian Gudus said

      Try to hit it lightly. It looks like your "e" key has been pressed. You probably pressed her harder when you wiped it off.
