If they refuse to do it then don't be too upset. It is a blessing in disguise. It will take time to learn how to do it, but it is worth it. When I built my first computer the build took me about 3-4 hours. I took my time and made sure every step was taken care of. I had all my screws organized since I wasn't sure which part went where just by looking at it. I watched a dozen video tutorials and read half a dozen articles about how to properly assemble a computer. It was a lot of work, but in the end I was really happy with the outcome. After that any time I had to take it apart to clean it got faster and faster. Eventually I was able to disassemble and reassemble my case in under an hour and have been able to help friends put together their computers pretty fast while simultaneously teaching them to do it on their own. I think it is worth learning if they decide to not fix the wiring for you.

You are only using dual channel not quad channel

Not anything wrong with that it just seems strange to be running dual on a motherboard which has slots for quad

It should at least look the other way around. The backside should be the messy side, while the main chamber should be the clean side. The shop are not making any effort at all when building your pc.
Do you have any close friend that knows how to build a pc? Usually ppl that build pc as a hobby will be much more skilled than the shop ppl.
Its not hard at all to clean urself. Like i said make a note on which cable go to which part. Usually they can only fit in 1 way. Just go you tube and watch some guide video. Once you start, it will become more easier as u do it.

Your CD/DVD drive, SSD, and HHD are all SATA powered and you probably have a single cable that has enough extensions to power all three of those. You might also need a MOLEX plug for the case fans and lighting so plug that sucker into your PSU. The last cable you will probably need is the 2x6 pin power connectors for your GPU. The only other cables you will need besides the ones in your case that connect to your MOBO are the SATA cables connecting the MOBO to the CD/DVD drive, HHD, and SSD. After you get all those set up you can start by routing them through the cable routing slots in the chasis to the other side and then plugging them into their respective parts. You will have to route everything besides the HHD and the SSD back into the main part of your case, but only put the minimum amount of cabling through to reach the part for each cable. everything else can be tied down to the back with zip ties or twist ties. You will see that there are multiple points to tie down cables on the back side so find the spots that fit best and provide the least stress on the cables. Also make sure not to clump too many of them together so you are still able to close the side panel on the case.

Thank you very very much for this reply, but honestly speaking, i don't know the difference between all the cables, i know the SATA cables, but the power cables are very confusing, maybe i have to open my PSU box cables bag now and start to study all the cables left unused there, i think the main problem and main key for me is know understand about the cables/wires first, then i will know how and which to take and how to connect the necessary cables, i think if i am smart enough, that the person in that shop wasn't in his mood to assemble it, and maybe also he did this intentionally so i will go back to him if i have issues so he can ask money if i need to fix things or replace things.

There isn't anything wrong with it. You just paid for an expensive MOBO that accommodates 8 sticks of ram when most only have 4 slots, yet you are only using 2 sticks. It isn't like you are doing any harm, it is just that you paid the premium for that MOBO and aren't utilizing the features you paid extra for.

Ok, do you think i should go and buy 4GB sticks for 16GB rather than those 2x 8GB each? And i may add more later for 32GB, and you know that this board is up to 64GB, so is it better to fill all the channels with smaller RAM sticks rather than having 2 or 4 larger size and leave other channel slots empty? I bought 16GB 2 kits RAM for my first build but later first build became 3 and i decided to split 4 Sticks into 2 rigs, the other one is accept up to 32GB, so it have 2 more slots only.

As i said, i may do it but i don't think i will do it now, and i have to read and understand about the cables, honestly speaking i don't know anything about PSU cables that came with and even the cables with the mobo and case and GPU.

you don't have to know about them right now. you can learn about them as you reassemble it. like i said, it will take time to learn, but it is worth the time to learn how to build a computer. You will never have to rely on a shop again. All the information you need is on the internet now which is why there are fewer and fewer computer shops. People can learn how to do pretty much anything on their own without any previous knowledge. smile.gif

Don't be in rush, i can always go and buy more RAM if i want, for now as starting i will go with 16GB , my first build will have 32GB anyway, and i was thinking if i should buy 2 more sticks and stay with 32GB or you want me to fill them all with sticks to have 64GB? when i bought i7-3930K i know that i will have that mobo which go up to 64GB anyway, whether i use 16GB or 32 or 64Gb it all depends on my use and budget too.
