    Re: Building My First Computer

    Hey everyone!

    So I read the manual and figured things out! I am now on my newly built system! Thank you all for your help!

    ASUS provided something called a Q-connector to use as a guide when connecting the motherboard's panel. That made things a lot easier, however, there are four pins for the speaker which I haven't found the wire for yet. I read the manual about it and it said that it's for when the motherboard beeps. Otherwise, everything is up and running. Just have to do some cable management so that things look neat.

    Thanks a lot for the help everyone.

    What make & model chassis/case did you get (link) ?

    The chassis/case might not have a speaker/buzzer installed.

    That case does not come with a internal speaker for the motherboard. If you need one you can salvage one from an old case/laptop or buy a new one.

    Yeah, seems most new cases these days don't include a speaker. Mine was without also. On my board, though, there is an LED for all of the components for which there are normally beep codes anyway. So, I just went with light instead of sound.

    Glad to hear you have your new system up and running. ENJOY!!!

    My mb also has leds but I find it much easier to listen to the beep codes than stick my head into the case

    Agreed. On my Asus P77 motherboard for example there are "idiot leds" that indicate a problem with various components.

    If you really want a speaker, Google "case speaker computer" or do the same search in Ebay. They can be had for under US$5.

    Yeah, I'm used to hearing the beeps on the motherboard, but it shouldn't be a problem. I powered up without turning on my keyboard and it told me, "No Keyboard Detected" and there are a bunch of LEDs. It's not a major concern right now. Now to get used to this UEFI BIOS...
