-- Installation
-- Page: 1 2 3 4 5 6

   The DD5 can be powered off of a standard floppy drive power connector, or you can use the included Molex converter if you do not have one available.  Although you should note, itís not a pass-through type adapter, so you will lose an available Molex connector in the process.  I prefer to just use a floppy connector.  There is less chance of something coming undone and there is less cable mess.

   Before you go any farther with the installation, you should do three things.  First, pop the CD in and read the PDF manual very, very carefully.  Itís full of info about setup that the box cover doesnít tell you.  Itís nice to have a second computer handy so you can read the manual and work at the same time. 

   Second, you should sit down and really plan out what fans are going to be controlled, how they are going to be controlled, where you are going to put all of the temperature sensors, and what fans they will control, if any.  The DD5 can control up to 8 fans and read 8 sensors, so thatís 16 sets of wires that you will have to plan out.  You will have wires running everywhere, and if you donít plan ahead, you will have no clue as to where they go or what they do.

   Lastly, you should remove the film protecting the LCD screen.  Itís a lot easier to take it off before you put it inside the case.
