It's not so much as em bein fitted like that, more like the cables are all bunched up in the way. It's almost as if they purposely make it a pain in the arse for you. Don't worry though, it's easily sorted out. Just don't be afraid to crack open your computer. People treat em like they're proper delicate n shit, but they ain't.

Most of it's pretty straight-forward, and you learn through findin the right connections (the process is practically like those shape-fittin toys for babies n toddlers) It'll take some intentional effort to break summat, so the most damage you'll possibly do is not plug something back in right. Even then, you just open it back up n correct the mistake.

Don't be afraid of cables either, they ain't gonna snap or owt. You gotta remember that all this shit is designed to withstand this kinda shit. Just trust me, open up your computer, take a few pictures, and tell me where you reckon the card's gonna go and if there's owt in the way. If you wanna upgrade this thing now n in the future, you're gonna have to learn how.

Yep, what he said. Really nothing to be afraid of, I especially agree that it is pretty much impossible to put something in there wrong enough to fuck things up, so just open it up and take a look inside.

Only thing is I heard the 8 core tech isnt quite there yet and having 8 cores isnt even really needed and probably not as well done as it will be in the future. Still, it just seems better. Thoughts?
