help building an sn26p

Postposted on Mon Feb 06, 2006 10:50 pm

Hey I'm building a Shuttle SN26p and I was wondering if anyone had run into any snags or had any advice about avoiding problems with the build. I'm putting in a 7800gtx, 150 gig raptor, 2 gigs ocz ram, athlon x2 4400+. I've got all the parts I've just never built a computer so anything to avoid or be careful of would be helpful. thanks

Its just like a woman, take it slow and dont force anything to fit and it will all slide in easily.

Shuttle specific tips
1) Buy new SATA cables now and save yourself the hassle (all P style chassis seem to have bad SATA cables)
2) Dont use the front most HD spot for the raptor, its gets no cooling.
3) Read the threads on SFFTech about the SN26P
4) Install the CPU, cooler, ram, graphics card, HD, dvd in that order.
