Just plug in your SATA power cable and the SATA data cable to your motherboard.

you just need to plug in the RED (SATA) cables, and then the power cables..and thats it...just make sure you set your hard drive jumper to use SATA II instead of SATA I

No way fade! The last thing you would imagine being a guide is using a phillips screwdriver to screw the HDD and optical drive into it's bay and mounting the motherboard!

True. It is hard choosing between size or speed.

well Im really nervous and this is my first computer build. I was supposed to have a friend who has a lot of computer build experience help me build it, but we got in a fight because he was frustrated I was so careful with my 2000 dollar build and left. So Im on my own and good riddens, cause ill build this computer by tonight alright working or not despite everyone I know doubting me.

We're just joking around Gabb. :laughing: Well do you see a SATA power connector (from the PSU) and a red SATA cable? Connect the SATA power connector to the longer slot and the red SATA cable to the shorter slot. Then connect the other end of the red SATA cable to either one of the purple or orange slots. Remember to take out the jumper on your HDD so that the data search speed won't be limited.

Is there any differance in the purple/orange slots, ones called IC9 or some crap like that. Also what is this jumper on the HDD that you speak of? I see no mention of it in the website instructions.
