Safety Guidelines 3

Correct Components and Tools

It is important to gather the components and correct tools for any build/upgrade and ensure that all components are present and that they are compatible. For example, ensure that the memory matches the motherboard and CPU, and that the CPU is suitable for the motherboard. Make sure also that any expansion cards match the slots on the motherboard.

Selecting the correct tool for the job is not only a matter of making the job easier to carry out but also to reduce the possibility of accidents.
