Description

It was actually a lot more difficult than I expected to build one lol. So many wires and I was really afraid I was gonna break something. It took me a while to get the front fans in the case to work but finally did it! Not sure if I got the fan control speed thing to work though. Hopefully I plugged everything I need and everything will work, especially the USB cause I was a bit confused with that since my case came with a weird 3.0 adapter thing.

With the H60, check the other mounting sockets that come with it. There should be an AM3/FX socket and I doubt it is the motherboard. Still, for a first timer, nice job!

Thanks! Ya I took another look. The Cooler only comes with mounting sockets that needs to be screwed into the mobo. But the motherboard I got can only use cpu coolers that clamps onto the top and bottom sides of the cpu. Fortunately the CPU i got had the cooler that was compatible with the mobo. But still would have liked to use a better cooler.

Yea... That sucks! Nice build though and I hope that stock cooler isn't too bad!

ya I hope so too, otherwise I'll have to get another cpu, and most likely switch the mobo to use the water cooling one lol.

You're actually supposed to use those Football Post/Y shaped things. They are supposed to replace the Intel bracket that's already on the cooler. The CPU backplate is not used in AMD sockets. Then you use those key things to attach the cooler to the motherboard. Here's a video for the 2013 edition, which is easier to install, but still very similar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cahueYmH5MM#t=12m18s.

Not bad for a first time build. You came in at a good price point for what you bought. Cable management isn't bad, but could use a little more TLC. :) Welcome to the club.

Just remove the clamps. I can't believe you didn't think of it.
