Ok, this is my first build, and the tech forums have been a great help to me, but here is another issue, or really, two that i've had with my current powersupply.
1. It came with the case i purchased, i went this route because i was fairly un-aware of how power supplies work and the layouts so i figured something that did it for me would be the best way.
the problem: if i so wanted to put 4 small hard drives into the case for money issues, it seems there are only 2 SATA plugs from my power supply. On the hard drives that i have seen, there is a four pin recieving end for a female peripheral plug from the powersupply. Can i use peripheral plugs to my SATA hard drives?
2. Regarding a ton of wires in my case, i've found a few of them not to go anywhere. such as a green/white wire that reads 12v and another few that have plugs, but, i'am not sure if i plug them directly into my power supply cause of the pins they have( some are 2 male) or just by the instructions on the box.
Problem: as obvious as it is, i'am hoping that my case will turn on when i hit the power switch. do i need to plug these additional wires into anything? unfortunately, the website
wasn't much help with the instructions.
Any additional help or points to a website or exstensive walkthrough would be great. or perhaps some advice for some of the people who may have my case as well. Thank you so much!
