Apply Thermal Paste: If needed, apply a small pea-sized amount of thermal paste onto the center of the CPU.
Attach Cooler: Align the cooler with the mounting holes. Follow the cooler's instructions to secure it properly to the motherboard (it may involve clips or backplate installation).
Connect Fan: Plug the CPU cooler's fan cable into the CPU_FAN header on the motherboard.
Install the RAM: (Corsair Vengeance DDR5)
Open RAM Slots: Push tabs outwards on both ends of the RAM slots.
Align RAM: Match the notch on the RAM stick to the slot.
Insert RAM: Push the RAM stick straight down until the securing tabs click into place.
Mount the Motherboard in the Case: (B650 Tomahawk)
Install Standoffs: Screw standoffs (small metal spacers) into corresponding holes in your case. These ensure the motherboard doesn't short on the case itself.
Align Motherboard: Position the motherboard with its rear ports aligning with the I/O shield slot on your case.
Install Screws: Gently screw the motherboard into the standoffs. Avoid over-tightening.
Install the Power Supply Unit (PSU): (Corsair 750e)

Locate PSU Mount: Most cases have PSU mounts at the bottom.
Insert and Secure: Slide the PSU into place and fasten it with screws.
Route Cables (Optional): Some cases provide space for managing cables behind the motherboard. Start routing the main power cables neatly if you intend to do this.
Install Storage Drives (SSD/HDD): (WD Black 850x)
Locate Drive Bays: Locate the 2.5" bays for SSDs and 3.5" bays for HDDs.
Mount Drives: Secure the drives into their bays using screws or a tool-less drive mounting system (case-specific).
Connect Cables: Connect SATA data cables from the drives to the motherboard's SATA ports. Connect SATA power cables from the PSU to the drives.
Install the Graphics Card (if applicable): (Radeon RX 7800 XT)
Locate PCIe Slot: Find the longest PCIe slot (usually PCIe x16 closest to the CPU). Release the slot's retention clip at the end.
Align and Insert: Align the graphics card's pins with the slot and press firmly until it clicks into place.
Secure the Card: Use a screw to fasten the card's bracket to the case.
Connect Power (if needed): If your graphics card requires additional power, connect the necessary PCIe power cables from the PSU.
Front Panel Connections: (Fractal Design North)
Consult Manuals: Find the front panel header on the motherboard (small pins usually located at the bottom). Refer to both the case and motherboard manuals for accurate connections.
Connect Wires: Carefully connect the power switch, reset switch, power LED, hard drive LED, and other case connectors to the correct pins.
Cable Management (Optional): Use cable ties to route and organize cables for better airflow and aesthetics.
Close the Case: Put the side panels back on and secure them.
Connect Peripherals: Plug in the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
First Boot and BIOS Setup:
Power On: Press the power button.
Enter BIOS: Press the BIOS key (usually Del, F2, or F12). Check your motherboard manual.
Configure Settings: Verify boot order, set date/time, enable XMP profile for your RAM (if needed). Save settings and exit.
Install Operating System: Use a bootable drive or disc.
