hm, cant see a reason to be seriously worried. If anything it might just make it a bit more noisey I'd think.

24 pin cable goes to the 24 pin on the motherboard. The 4/8 pin goes to the 4/8 pin on the motherboard. Anything that is IDE is going to have a molex connector (i'll let you google that) and anything sata is going to have the little L shaped power connector. As far as fans go i have all of my fans running off of the psu with molex connections rather than deal with plugging them all into the fan headers on the board.

Make sure all components are securely in place/seated correctly. Do the fans spin? Does anything come on at all (eg, the power light, etc.).
