Default A few questions during build

Hi,

I am currently putting my desktop together and have a few questions to ask.

1. On the MB, half of the 8-pin EATX12V power plug is covered up, so only 4 pins are showing. Is that OK or do I have to remove the cover on the other half?

2. The wires on my Cooler Master case fans seem to be too short. They do not reach the connectors on the MB. Any ideas?

Thanks very much in advance!

If your psu has an 8 pin cpu cable than undo the cover, else just leave it.

Not sure on the fans as mine are all 4 pin molex. You might have a adapter to run it straight of the psu though. That'd change the lengfth.
