Congratulations on your purchase of an NZXT custom BLD PC!
Your PC will come with all sorts of cables and accessories but don't fear! Most of those cables are extras that came with the components of your PC. The only cable you will need from the bunch is the power cable, which will be in your black bag.
Setting it up is quick and easy! Follow these steps so you can get to gaming in no time:
After removing your PC from the box you will notice a white bag inside the case. This bag is called an Instapak and it is placed inside your PC to help prevent damage during shipping. To remove the Instapak you will need to carefully remove the glass panel by unscrewing the 4 thumb screws on the glass (or single thumbscrew on the rear for the H500 and H500i). Place the glass gently on a soft surface and remove the Instapak. You may then put the glass back on the case.
Now that the Instapak has been removed you can now hook up the power cable. The power cable will plug into the bottom back of your system next to the number 5 like so:
Next, you will attach the Display cables to the GPU (aka the graphics or video card). The GPU is the horizontal slot about halfway down the back of the PC next to the number 1. You will need to use either a DisplayPort (left) or HDMI (right) cable to connect the system to your monitor.
Now that the PC has the power and display cables hooked up, it is time to boot it up! Make sure the switch next to your power cable is in the "I" position. Then on the top of the case, possibly under a blue BLD sticker, firmly press the power button.
Your PC should now show signs of life: fans spinning, lights, and a display on your monitor! That means you are all clear to hook up your peripherals (keyboard, mouse, etc.) to the Motherboard, which is the vertical slot on the back of your PC next to the number 2 (boxed in red). This is also where you will hook up your internet cable next to the number 3 (see arrow). If your Motherboard comes with WiFi preinstalled you will also need to attach the antennas by screwing them into the headers on the motherboard.
You can also now attach your headset or speakers to the system in either the front or rear audio ports. Please note that in order for your headset to have both your headphones and microphone enabled you will need to either use a split headset with 2 inputs or a USB headset. Single jack headsets may work for one or the other, but may not work at all.
You are now free to set your region and complete your Windows 10 setup. After setup is complete you are all set to begin downloading games. Have fun!
