As you can imagine, you'll need some tools and materials before you get started.

Materials and gear needed

With all your materials and tools in hand, it is time to get on with the build. 

Step 1: Build the main motherboard

The first step is to take the main motherboard and key components and begin to assemble them as required. The process will depend entirely on the main components you've decided to use, but be sure to follow the instructions given in the video tutorial if you are copying the above setup faithfully.

Insert the RAM, PCU, graphics card, etc, as needed, and be sure not to damage the components as you install them. 

Step 2: Add the electronics to the gaming case

Take your Cougar CONQUER ATX Gaming Case and begin to install the various components to the gaming case as needed. Affix the required cooling components as you go too.

Feed the cooling pipework, power cable, and other cables through the gaming case as needed too. Connect them all up as required - once again the process will depend entirely on the components you have chosen to use.

Step 3: Finish the build

Once the main gaming tower is fully assembled you can then complete the process of adding the coolant fluid. Be very careful when you do this, and ensure you flood the coolant system correctly.
