Installing hardware to power supply

By DLambie

  1. I am llooking for manuals é guides on hooking up hardwar such as internal had drives, video cards, etc to a power supply.

    I am rebuilding my old computer and got a the devices but can not figure out how to hook them up - as what while go where.

    I have a NVIDIA GEFORCE 8500GT video card and it as a wire coming from it and unsure where this wire goes.

    Any suggest would be greatly appreciated,
    David

    Here is a guide that should get you started: http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html

    However, if the wire is coming from the graphics card, it sounds like it is the graphics card fan cable. If so, it fits onto a connector on the graphics card itself. It must have come loose since you ordinarily don't disconnect it unless you are replacing the graphics card heatsink/fan.

    That website is great! Knew most of the info on it, but did learn some new things.
