Then go back and complain to them :classic:

At least it looks like they plugged in the CPU heatsink and GPU heatsink cause then it would just fry

well just look for the fans connectors, will be a 4 pin (has four pins in it)
then the power supply will have a bunsh of wires coming out of it. find a plug on the PS with for pins and plug them together. then to make sure you plugged them in right just turn on the pc and listen for them.

Personally, If I was you i'd take it back and complain. They took the responsibility of upgrading your PC and you paid them for it, they are liable to return the PC in proper working order.

Take it back. Tell them to reconnect the proper fans, lights ETC...
If they refuse... crap on the floor.

Jeezuz! What the heck is wrong with those people?!? What kind of fly-by-night shenanigans run a shop like that?

This is a prime example of why we should all know our own PCs and Rigs. This would be a prime time to initiate yourself into the PC building/upgrading community. Just make sure that you do some research, and never replace the case cover(s) until you have powered on the system, passed the POST (Power On Self Test) and the Operating System has loaded. Not doing so will invoke Murphy's law. Also, don't work inside the case when the power is on or the PSU is plugged in just to be on the safe side.

Jeez, at least go give those boneheads a verbal thrashing, they could have ruined your system!
