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.
