This section will cover the removal of a PSU on your Puget System
Start by grounding yourself
Remove all power going into your system and orient yourself from the rear of the system
Remove the 2 thumb screws securing left hand side panel then slide panel off chassis
Locate the PSU and remove the 2 screws securing it to the rear of the case
Once the screws are loose you can pull the PSU directly out of the case
With the PSU out of the case, unplug all cables from the rear of the PSU making note of which slot each one is occupying
Unscrew the brace attached to the defective PSU
Now attach the brace you removed, to the new PSU
Let's reattach all the cables to the rear of the PSU. All connections and ports are labeled to make this process simpler but it should be very close to where you unplugged them
Now slide the PSU back into your case, rescrew the thumbsrews and replace the side panel. Power up your system and you're good to go
