If you have never collected a computer before, this process may seem a bit complicated and scary to you. However, this process is not as difficult as you think. If you do the necessary research while purchasing the products, just be careful when placing the components in the right slots and the correct connection points. If you’re still worried, we’ve prepared a comprehensive video for you. Have a pleasant time already!

It’s okay if you’re not sure where to start. We’ve spent a lot of time building computers over the years, and we can’t wait to share our expertise in how to put a computer together. It is not easy to make money in our country. We will guide you step by step through the whole process to create a beautiful PC with all the components you have earned and spent. Not only will you have one of the best computers on the market at the end of this guide, you will also be proud of it as this is your creation.
While a single Phillips screwdriver is usually all you need to build a PC, you may want to have a few more things on hand just in case. For example, needle nose pliers or a simple pair of tweezers can be useful for inserting or removing screws in tight places. Alternatively, if your Phillips screwdriver has a magnet, it will be of great convenience.
Plastic clamps are very useful for bundling your PC cables, and fortunately these clamps usually come with a few different computer parts, you don’t have to buy them separately. You may also need a pair of side cutters (or just scissors) to cut these clamps.
If it used to be, we could recommend you to use an anti-static wristband. However, today’s computer components have the necessary protection against static electricity. In this context, we can say that anti-static wristbands are not necessary unless you decide to collect a PC after you have thoroughly rubbed on the carpet. We have never used it until today, and we have never had a component that we broke due to static electricity. Let us point out though: Before each assembly, we discharged the static electricity on us by touching the case or another metal around.
When it comes to your workspace, you’d better use a large table that you can tilt on its side so you can relax your PC. We use a table with height adjustment in the office, but of course it will be an exaggeration for you.
Remember, before you start to install it, it is useful to have a monitor, keyboard and mouse with you. So when the collection in fog is finished, you have something to plug in the PC. In addition, a power outlet and internet connection are a must.
Nowadays it’s hard to find a modern PC with an optical drive, so burn the Windows 10 installer to a USB stick. You can get the updated Windows 10 ISO file from here. Do not worry, we have a separate guide for installation, which will be very useful after installation.
Over the weeks you have prepared the list of PC parts, we wait for the parts to be in stock, we finally place your orders and the parts are delivered to your door. It is time to assemble now. You have your Yılzdız screwdriver in your hand and you are ready to assemble your new computer!
1. Prepare the Case
The first might be to take your case out of the box and make it as a skeleton as possible. Remove the right and left covers, also take out the screw box, which is usually in the hard drive cage. If you do not want to lose your screws during assembly, we recommend you to use a magnetic bowl or an alternative oval container.
2. Extra Fan?
If you thought the fans that came with your case were not enough and bought extra cooling fans, now is the time to install them. It is useful to keep the case cooling balanced at all times. Generally, cold air is taken in from the front of the case and hot air is expelled from the back. The main reason for this is that the components that create heat are located on the back of the case. If you’re not sure which way the wind is going, here’s a good tip: the plastic fan guards are on which side the air comes out.
Typically, you want the front two fans to draw in air and at least one at the rear to blow out. Although most cases allow you to install a fan on the top, it’s a good idea not to exaggerate the number of fans, as this will return to you as noise.
3. Motherboard Assembly
Before assembling the motherboard, it’s a good idea to check a few things about your PC case. The first thing to do should be to check the factory installed motherboard upgrade screws. Make sure the number and layout of these match the holes on your motherboard.
Second, check if your case has a large CPU cut or window cutout on the back of the motherboard bezel. If there is no gap – which is now available in most modern PC cases – you must install your CPU cooler on the motherboard before mounting the motherboard on the case. Otherwise, you cannot install the cooler backplate. Similarly, some Mini ITX motherboards have M. 2 slots on the back of the yellow. It will also be difficult to access this part.
Now that everything is ready, we can start by mounting the backplate. Find the I / O shield in the box of your card and push it into the rectangular slot on the back of your PC case. Since the sound panels are yellow below, you can make the positioning by looking at them. You may need to apply a lot of force to make the plate fit properly. However, apply this force to the sides of the plate, not the middle. Otherwise, the plate is very susceptible to warping. Another point is the port contacts on the backplate. It is useful to curl them up a little. Otherwise, when you install the motherboard, you can see them get inside the panels. It’s really annoying! Finally, most modern high-end motherboards now come with an internal backplate. Incredible ease of installation.
In the next step, place your motherboard inside your case. Carefully align the rear ports with the corresponding holes in the I / O shield you just installed, and place your motherboard on top of the risers installed in your case. These risers can be protruding from the middle for guiding purposes. If you fit the motherboard here, your job will be even easier.
If everything is ok, you can start fixing the motherboard with the screws that came with your case. Be sure to use the correct screws to avoid damaging the riser mounts in case you need to remove it at a later date.
4. Processor Assembly
In the next step, we attach the processor to the motherboard. Things are slightly different here depending on which processor family and / or brand you choose.
For Intel processors, pull out the spring retainer and slide it up, then lift the socket cover, leaving the plastic cover in place. Next, gently place your processor into the socket by matching the gold triangle in the lower left corner of the processor with the triangle in the socket socket.
In the next step, gently slide the fixing foot to its original position. During this process, the socket cover will come and as a result it will go under the screw in the socket. After this stage, you need to start pressing the foot. The protective plastic cover will come off automatically during this process, so don’t be afraid here. Should you ever decide to remove the processor from the motherboard, be sure to keep the cover in a safe place as it will protect the motherboard’s delicate pins. It makes most sense to put it back in the motherboard box.
Installation is much easier if you are installing an AMD processor like us. There is no protection cover here. Just lift the handle enough to bring it to an upright position.
You should then take your Ryzen processor and match the gold triangle on the corner of the processor with the triangle on the socket. When the pins on the bottom of the processor line up with the holes in the socket, release it. You can nudge the processor gently to make sure it is safe. Finally, lower the handle again and lock it in place.
