Do you have the manual?
yes i am looking at the manual right now. ok i found the speaker port (also i hope im putting all these in the right way. i have all the tags on the cords facing towards the tags on the mobo.)
now i dont see the 4/8 pin power connector. this manual seems to skip alot of information.
it covers installing ram, psu/heatsink, hdd, front panal connectors, jumpers, pcie slots, and audio(hooking up a receiver) after that it jumps straight into the bios.\
the last mobo i used was an abit kn8 sli, and the instructions in that manual were to a T. i dont remember hitting any snags building it, but also my dad was there for any questions i had, and he knows way more than i do(considering he used to do it for a living when he was younger lol)
this is what is in this system aswell if that matters 3 new comps
its down towards the bottom of the page where it says final build.
oh on another note since my HDD is sata, i have the dvd drive currently connected to where the manual says to plug in the HDD at. will that work? because i absolutely cannot find another place to stick the connector at.
