well to say the least. im very confused. the case that i purchased came with the led temperature gauge and two led fans. my old pc had nothing like this. just one fan. anyways, im getting very confused on where to attach things. ive gotten the temperature gauge to light up and give me a reading and ive installaled the mobo got the video card in the agp slot i have the processor in and also the floppy and cd rom drive and the hard drive sitting to the side. ive connected things a few times and tried to start it up. both fans will turn on, but one will not light up, the other will the hard drive will start making a little noise and the temperature gauge will come on and then about 2 seconds later it will shut off. i have a 350 power supply, i thought it would be enough, maybe not though. im just kinda loss to what to do now. maybe i really just have no idea where to put anything in this case the right way. so i took some pictures, not the best but maybe you can tell me where each one goes in the sequence they should be put at. thanks to any help you can give me.
- the whole setup as of now
plugs to the fan. being two fans there is two sets of these
main power. pretty sure thats right considering things will turn on
connections for switches and leds. think its correct cause it turns on for a short time.
pretty sure these connect to the cd rom floppy but what else, seems like some are left over after i plug stuff in.
still can't figure where to put these
this might have been powering the temperature gauge. can't really remember so confused
as for the large fat flat wiring that runs from the hard drive to mobo then some runs from the cd rom and the floppy i found where the floppy is supposedly supposed to go but as far as the hard drive it makes it unclear as to where to place the wires for the right connection setup. thanks again. sorry this was so long and stupid.
