Question Need help recognizing power cables

This is a really dumb question, but I'm kinda having trouble figuring out where the wires from my case plug into my motherboard. I've got a MSI Via K8T Neo-V motherboard.

Could someone please help, this is my first time building a computer.

Thanks in advance.

I recently connected up my motherboard. it was my first time too but its quite easy really. In your case manual it should tell you where all the front panel audio things connect and all the other various ones. Also look in your motherboard manual, what case did you buy?

I bought a case from CompUSA, a MidTower ATX case with two USB ports on the front, a mic and a headphone jack. I tried looking in my motherboard and case manual, and they told me nothing, unfourtunately.

Hmm ok are these the only things you are having trouble connecting?
what are the shortened words on the connectors? (if you know wat i mean, dont know what to call em).
What is the make and model of the case?

Pretty much, I'm having trouble with every single cable sticking out of the case. Except the speaker, I found that one.

I can't seem to find the place on the motherboard where you're supposed to plug them in.

As far as the make and model go, all it says is SKU: 313069
