Need help connecting a power supply

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I am new to building a computer and working on having my computer running soon, I just have one problem. I don't know where any of the psu cords go. I have a corsair cx600 and for the motherboard a biostar ta970. It would be really awesome if anyone can help me out =)

Oh boy... CX600 is nonmodular.

Male connector fits in female connectors.

ATX 24 pin goes in the ATX 24 pin slot on the motherboard.

EPS+12V (CPU 4 or 8 pin) goes near the CPU .


SATA power goes to Solid state drive (SSD) or HDD (hard disk drive)

6 pin and 8 pin PCIE goes into the GPU (graphics card)

Okay, I figured that part out, now I have some cables marked PCI-E, powersw, hddled, reset switch, +pled, and -pled. I am taking it that the last ones go ;in the orange pins towards the bottom of the board, marked panel 1?

Nope. The things on the left are for the case cables (LED/HDD LED/ Reset/+PLED/-PLED) those don't plug into the PSU. You plug in the cables from your case to the motherboard.

like these
