PC Assembly - Organising drives and cables

February 2017

Organising internal components

Hard drives and other internal devices (floppy disk drive, CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drives or burners) may be installed in any internal drive bay. However, installation of these devices may be restricted by the following:

  • cable length and availability;
  • the temperature of certain devices;
  • ease of access to devices. It is advisable to install those devices that are used most often in a more accessible location, for example installing CD-ROM/DVD-ROM drives in the most accessible drive bay.

Conclusion

Once the computer has been fully assembled it should then be cabled up to the power supply and various other devices (starting with the keyboard and the mouse) which should be plugged into their sockets located at the rear (and sometimes at the front) of the case.

Finally an operating system must be installed before you can actually use the computer!
