First Time Builder, Please Help
Okay, I just got my new pc and have everything in the case and connected, how I think it should be connected. I don't want to turn the PC on until I KNOW everything is right, so I was wondering if you guys could verify everything I have done.
NOTE: Sorry if I don't use correct terminology.
I have my power switch, reset switch, and internal speaker connected right. The HDD LED and Power LED, I'm not sure about because polarity matters for those, so I will just do trial and error. I haven't connected the Front panel USB ports to the motherboard yet because I don't know how, and I also won't be using themthe first time I turn it on.
I have my ATX 20-Pin Power Connector connected to the motherboard. I have my ATX 12V Power Connector connected to the motherboard also.
I have my 160GB ATA133 HDD set to master and have the black 40-pin connector plugged in to that, on the primary IDE. I have the CD Burner set to slave and have the grey 40-pin connector plugged into that, aslo on the primary IDE. I have the floppy drive cable connected to the floppy drive.
I have the heatsink fan power wire going to the CFAN port labeled on the motherboard.
I have 4-pin power connectors going from the PSU, to the HDD, the FDD, CD-ROM, the video card (6800), and 2 case fans. One thing about the case fans though, they have two connectors for each fan. One connector is a 4-pin power male version and the other is female. I plugged the 4-pin power connector from the PSU into one of those and was wondering what the other one was for.
Thanks for any help you provide.
