If not, it will be fine with the way you mentioned.
It is long enough this way, but any other way I try it and the other parts (GPU, FAN) get in the way. I could try tugging a little harder.

This is taking longer than expected. I've never had anything like a HAF X before. I am getting use to the hot swap drive bays and the plastic quick drive bays inside. This is all very different for me. I've never build a PC before but I've put ram/gpu/IDE hard drives in before with normal PCs.

Will be done soon enough. I've got till 12:00 AM EST until ASUS' customer service closes should I need them.

That is odd. The cable should certainly be long enough. Consider yourself lucky that you have a large case. In my old builds, the top of the motherboard was right up against the top of the case, so if you had a large heatsink it was a pain to put the CPU power cable in. Full tower cases ftw!

This!

I could have got a Black NZXT Phantom for $130 compared to the HAF X nVidia which was $180 with a bundle. But for my first build I know the extra room would be great for me. The GTX 580 DirectCU II is ******* big! If that thing drops it's gonna explode! It could probably fit in a smaller case but there would no hand-room!

Anyway, all I have left it the case plugs. The LEDs, the fans, etc...

I don't even know where to get started on here. Does anyone know anything about connecting the usb and fan plugs on a HAF X? Please?

I'm really confused. The case fans are IDEs with two connecters: one with pins and one without. Do these go to the PSU?

Let's start with this. I have 2 sets of pin add-ons here:

One that says...

Quote:
HDD LED +
HDD LED -
PWR Ground
Reset Ground
Another that says...

Quote:
+5V
P1 -
P1 +
GND
I looked on the mb and the there is a set of pins that match the first one. Do I just add this on top of them? What do I do with the second one?

PS: The reason I'm asking so many questions is because the Corsair, Coolermaster, and ASUS instructions are HORRIBLE and VAGUE for first-time builders. If it wasn't for you guys, I'd be completely stuck or out of minutes on my phone from talking to customer service. I'd also be doing this while laying in my own poop -

The Motherboard manual should tell you how exactly you should connect the following cables;

Quote:
HDD LED +
HDD LED -
PWR Ground
Reset Ground
I can't really tell by memory which one goes where since I'd have to open my PC to do that, but the Manual should tell you.

White cables are -, the colored cables will be + unless otherwise specified.

And yes, funny that you mention that the instructions are vague because they are. My case manual had more information on how to connect the front panel headers.

Well, I'm almost done. I double confirmed that the Silver Arrow's bolt is tight agasint the CPU. Tightened it a little more. It's tight as a virgin. Connected all the IDE case fans. Also I found an extension for the 8-pin 12V cord that came with the HAF X. That should solve the earlier problem. I've been seeing that cord around...thought it was for something else.

I've been hearing about the HAF X's front panal having a short in them or something. They are destroying some motherboards. I hope that problem doesn't effect me. I mean, it's too late to check I think.

Connected the LED and Power and Reset switch as well as the headphone audio switch.

The only thing now is I can't find the USB 2.0 port on the motherboard for the front panel. That other switch I was talking about earlier is for that. The thing is I can't really confirm where its' supposed to go. I've created a thread in the Motherboard forum. Should get answers soon.

Also, I have a big red SATA cord that I think is to plug in the back port to create a port on the front. It don't wanna fit for me anywhere. Not a big deal but I'm gonna ask in the case forum.

Otherwise everything is all set to go. I am going to call ASUS tomorrow and let them know step-by-step everything I've done. I want a worker who knows the board in & out to confirm for me that I did everything right. I'll turn on the PC with them on the phone. Of course, that turns me into a complete wuss but at least I'll have a rocking gaming rig!

Also, I will post it here as well before I turn it on to see what you have to say. I want to thank everyone for their help. I couldn't have done this without you. Thank you.

Looking forward to see pictures of the rig!

That problem was fixed long ago. I've been using my Nvidia Edition HAF-X for 6 months, problem-free.
