This is going to be my first, computer build and the only thing i don't know much about is the jumpers on a mother board, I know what they do, they are used to close circuits and such, what I don't know is where and how to place them. When I buy a motherboard will the jumpers come already on it or will I have to put them on myself? If so how do I go about doing that, like where do I put them? O.o
Other than CMOS reset, most modern mobos don't have jumpers. Settings are made in BIOS.
AS jaquith stated, all info will be in the manual. (RTFM)
You can download the manuals from mobos you are interested in from the manufacturers website (usually) and go thru them before purchasing.
