Maybe you should have read a "how to build a computer" guide before buying your parts...

List your compoents so we may better help you.

Its pretty basic. If you can't figure it out by yourself then you need to do some reasearch.

We need to know what your using because certain computer components use different connectors and such. You could always look into the manuals for alittle explanation as to where they go.

The only thing that should connect to the motherboard power wise is the CPU/heatsink Fan, Everything else in the computers get its own connector from the power supply.

Consult your manual for more information.

google for a general computer building guide, and when it comes to the cabling, the motherboard literature should tell you what goes where.
