I have been putting my new machine together, I have everything except the processor
I will put that on once I get it, I don't think it will be to hard.
I have been trying to figure out the wiring, man there is a lot more wiring than I thought there would be. Anyways, the wires for the buttons on front like the power button, reset button, how do I know which way they go on the motherboard? I assume it matters right? All the wires(all of them have 2 wires but one which has three holes but only two wires), have a white wire, except one which is red and black(I assume the black is the ground). Is the white wire the ground wire? Also one is black and white, which one is ground on that one? Sorry if this is confusing.
I have been reading the motherboard and case manual and the motherboard says which pin is which but I don't know which is which on the wires.
Also I am unsure about the fan hookups. On the motherboard, there are 3 connections for fans, sys_fan1, sys_fan2, and pwr_fan(actually there are 4 but one is for the cpu). There are only 2 fans that hook up to the motherboard and both say power. Which one goes where? And how come all 4 fans don't hook up to the motherboard? Do they plug into each other?
If needed I can post pics to try and clear this up.
I did not realize this but my case only has 1 intake fan, the other 3 are exhaust. I figured there would be more intake fans. I guess it is better to pull the heat out rather than just blow the heat around inside the case.
