Question computer case

I just purchased a new MB and a new case with lights on it, anyone know what I am supposed to plug the connecters into? do I get some sort of adapter for the MB?
Thanks

The connectors from the lights? They should plug into the PSU unless im not mistaken. They should have molex connectors that fit right into the PSUs molex connectors

My wires plug into the bottom right of my mobo. They should be a group of 6-8 small plug things, lol.

There should be 2 pins or 4 pins near the reset pins and power turn on pins that are made for a power LED. But consult the motherboards manual for the pins that you should plug these into.
