Dean Kent (van RealWorldTech, zelfde ventje als die van de usenet berichten over Intel's chipset marketing strategiŽn) heeft bij Sharky Extreme het derde deel van z'n Motherboard Guide online gezet. In part 3 wordt uitgelegd hoe je een plank moet installeren (moederkoek in de kast flikkeren en schroefjes dichttimmeren):
If you have never installed a motherboard, you should read this article in its entirety before jumping in to make sure you understand what is involved and have at least a general idea of how you will proceed. You should also review the User's Manual for your board to identify the location of all slots, jumpers, switches and connectors. The manual may also include helpful tips regarding the handling, installing and configuring of the motherboard. Even if you have installed one or two boards in the past, you may find some useful information here.
The tools necessary are fairly minimal - A Philips screwdriver, needle-nose pliers and perhaps some electrician's tape. Before you actually open the case, you should unplug the power supply from the wall and make sure you are properly grounded. Static electricity, even from your body, can seriously damage the components inside the computer if you are not careful. The best way to ground yourself is to use a wrist strap that is connected to the case chassis, but you can achieve the same result by touching the chassis each time before handling a component.
Once you are ready, open the case and get ready to spend about an hour or two under the hoodÖ
Ben je nog niet 'in the known', dan is het wellicht handig om hier verder te lezen.
