Install Gigabyte Motherboards

Install Gigabyte Motherboards

Gigabyte motherboards are one of the most popular motherboards on the market today. The motherboards manufactured by Gigabyte are typically made for desktop computers. Gigabyte produces motherboards for both AMD and Intel processors. It also produces motherboards that support SLI or Crossfire technology. Installing a Gigabyte motherboard is an easy process, but you have to be very cautious when handling the motherboard. You can easily destroy the motherboard by touching it when you are charged up with static electricity. Also, a motherboard can short circuit if any other metal objects are touching the motherboard and making contact with the circuits.


1. Put the antistatic wrist wrap around your hand to absorb any static electricity from yourself. If you do not have an antistatic wrist wrap and still wish to install your Gigabyte motherboard, touch a grounded metal object, such as a doorknob, to discharge the static electricity on you. Work on a noncarpet floor.

2. Take the motherboard out of its packaging and place it on a surface that is far away from any material that would produce static electricity, such as wool or cotton.

3. Open the computer case. Take the metal supports included with the motherboard and screw them into the holes provided on the case wall.

4. Gently pick up the motherboard and lower it into the computer case. Make sure that you can see all the supports that you installed through the screw holes on the motherboard. If there are any supports that are covered, remove the motherboard from the case and take out the covered supports as they can cause your motherboard to short circuit when turning the computer on.

5. Fasten all the necessary screws to the supports through the motherboard screw holes. Do not overtighten but make sure that the motherboard is firmly in place.
