This section will cover the removal of a PSU on your Puget System

Step 1:

Start by grounding yourself

Step 2:

Remove all power going into your system and orient yourself from the rear of the system

Step 3:

Remove the 2 thumb screws securing left hand side panel then slide panel off chassis

Step 4:

Locate the PSU and remove the 2 screws securing it to the rear of the case

Step 5:

Once the screws are loose you can pull the PSU directly out of the case

Step 6:

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

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
