new win/8.1 pc annoying the absolute shit out of me!!! please help!

so I pick my new pc up and everything is installed on the ssd (C drive) which is kinda what I was expecting, but I was also expecting to be able to change the bloody location of the user folder to my HDD!!!
iv been on this thread here http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-files/how-to-move-user-folders-to-2nd-drive-in-windows-8/f58029d0-bfcf-4fab-a266-a56f6d9e65b5?page=3 with another bunch of pissed of people at Microsoft because they cant fix a simple issue, and still haven't found my answer.
one of the problems I have is I cannot find the location bar in the user properties to change the location of the user folder which may be why. (my pc is a custom so I may not be able to restore it as it may un install windows, gpu software and cpu software installed on the ssd (I don't know if the fact that its a custom will change this).
I would realy like a simple answer that wont corrupt anything. please help. thankyou.

    You can't move Users off C:\. But you can use folders on another drive to store your stuff.

    Replicate your Users folders structure on C: on D:. Appdata, Contacts, Desktop, etc etc

    sorry I cant talk again today so talk again tomorrow. but like I said there is no locations tab and is there any way of making the d drive the defult drive for downloading things to? I may have more questions later. thankyou you are very helpful!
  3. Downloads - make a Downloads foler on D:\.

    On Windows Explorer, Click on Downloads, R Click, Properties, make Target = D:\Downloads
  4. although I didn't do it the exact way, I still worked it out. and could you tell me also if my psu will handle my 'parts' on full load? thanks
  5. Use your motherboard UEFI to monitor and control cpu and fan speeds.
