You need to screw the motherboard onto the case...

Reading the manual for your motherboard will tell you exactly where the case wires can be pluged in.

yes, but when you have a different power supply then the motherboard, cables aren't always the same

Thats only true if you have an ancient power supply, and you don't, so read the manual.

Take the 24 pin connector from PSU and put it in the 24 pin hole on the MOBO

Then by the looks of mobo pics there should be a 8pin slot close to the CPU socket , plug an 8pin power connector from PSU here.

plug up the HD and CD drive to the PSU...blah blah..

I haven't put together a computer with newer parts, so I'm not to sure what all you need to plug up. Sorry, lol..I tried though :P

And as others said, would be best to read the mobo booklet

Yes...read the mobo manual...make sure you get two 6 pin connectors from the power supply to that video card....I have the same power supply and it does have two 6 pin connectors on it.

now if your concerned about the case plugs like the HDLED, PWLED, RSLED, etc etc... best to read the manuals cuz with the comps ive built they cab be different from mobo to case... but yea everything else is pretty much summed up... plug and play :laughing:
