    at the bottom but the motherboard is just on the edge the psu is coming over the motherboard there is very less gap between motherboard and the psu difficult to install please any advice i want to build my pc fast thank you for your help please continue helping me
  6. the case doesnt support that motherboard. get the 932, as others have said. also, that is a really crappy psu. a corsair 750tx would do you well!

    Yes i already returned 922 and bought 932 but still i am unable to install my power supply its gets in the way when i install my motherboard how do i install both of them if either one gives trouble to other?
  8. post some pics, it might help.

    i would also get a different psu like shovenose suggested, the one you have is a POS

    True but what do you mean the one i have is a POS?.Does this 932 have a specific requirements of psu like not all psu are supported on this cabinet?
  10. pos=piece of sh*t
    well its not the case compatibility. any atx psu should fit in the case. its just the quality of the psu in general. for example your lousy 600w has probably the case amount of power as a corsair 400cx 400w psu...
    and it just is less stable and wont last as long and isnt as good quality

    Ok fine i understand that my psu is not of a good brand or quality but atleast it should fit in the case right why is it bothering the motherboard?
  12. post some pics of how it is not fitting in your case. It would help a lot in determing what is going wrong
  13. well, the cm 932 has the capability for the psu to be installed at the top. try that :)

    Alright here are some pics showing less gap between power supply and motherboard and see the i/o panel the motherboard is not fitting to the i/o panel unless i remove my power supply and push my motherboard a bit downwards

  15. well you have not lined the mobo up properly, look at the io panel
  16. try mounting the psu on the top instead of the bottom

    thats what i said :)
  18. shovenose said:

    yes you did, i guess great minds think alike... :)
  19. You obviously have not attached the motherboard correctly. Just look at the IO sheild, the connectors should be touching it and peeking out the back of the case. I would recommend taking the motherboard out of the case and start fitting it in again. You should do this; Put in the motherboard stand offs, put the IO shield in place, put the motherboard in so connectors are peeking out the back of the case, screw the motherboard into the stand offs, then insert the PSU into the case and connect it up.
    There was no need to change the case, the 922 is a great case and it should have fit fine (unless you do have an extended motherboard but i think you have a standard ATX that would have fit).
  20. no i looked at the mobo specs ga890fxa-ud7 it needs extended-atx
  21. shovenose said:

    That i know but to align the motherboard to fit the i/o panel i need more space which is blocked by my psu and if i fix my motherboard first then i am unable to fix psu
  22. shovenose said:
    thats what i said :)


    But if i want to fix my psu on top i have to remove the top fan right?
  23. i dont care. heres what im saying:
    ignore the psu for now. install the motherboard properly. then, try mounting the psu at both the top and bottom. one of them will work.
  24. sorry if that came across rudely-i dont mean it. im just annoyed about something else right now so it isnt the best of moments :)

    I already tried the bottom its not fitting but will try the top do i have to remove the fan?
  26. i dont know. i dont have the same case. but if the psu wont go in then yes, you will.

    Hey guys it worked i am able to fix my psu at the top and now my motherboard is aligned properly but i am sad i had to take out that big fan on top can i fix it at the bottom?
  28. no i guess it can only fit the extended-atx size mobos with the psu on top. sorry about the fan, but if you get a better psu with a 120mm fan on the bottom it will take the place rather nicely. so does the computer work well?

    Hey i solved that problem but now a new problem came sorry for troubling you guys but you all know better than me so please continue to help me thank you

    Ok now my processor is properly fixed and all components are fixed and connected but when i try to turn on the power the case fans turn on just for a second or two then off but my motherboard shows blue leds on power switch and reset switch and cmos do you think my psu is dead?
  34. most likely a short between the motherboard and a misplaced standoff.

    Hey i totally forgot about installing stand offs thats why it didnt work.Now its working but here is the next problem the pc continuously restarts what is the reason for this.All the case fans are running and even cpu fan is running but the hdd and power leds on the case are continuously blinking not stable and the gpu continuously turns on and off.
  36. Hey guys i think the power supply is the problem i think its not enough to power all case fans,cpu,motherboard its just 600w so i am buying a 750w cooler master power supply do you think its enough and other brands like corsair and seasonic are not available here so my only choice is cooler master now

    you probably broke the motherboard when you strained it by not installing standoffs. return it and get a new one :) thats the best thing to do. then, get something better than the vip 600w. the coolermaster-what model is it?
  39. You have totally messed this build up. You should be concentrating with what you are doing!. You don't need to keep blaming the components for why its not working, it is obviously you that is doing things wrong.

    If it keeps restarting then you might not have connected the psu up correctly. Mien kept restarting because the power tot he cpu was loose. Just unplug everything and use a website to make sure you connect everything up correctly.
  40. i thought everyone could build a computer.
