The 8-pin will be fine, but you should run the FP audio through the rear hole down by the psu and the FP power, reset and led wires through the front hole by the psu. Will be much cleaner.
Take your time. Think about everything 2 or 3 times before you do anything. Make a step by step plan and then follow it through and you'll be fine. I am so happy for you but a bit jealous as well cuz my stuff won't be here till Wednsday. All my sleeving and heatshrink tubing AND my Lian-Li PCI-01 tool less PCI card lock assembly (in red) won't arrive till the end of the week. OOoooooo that is going to be double KEWL!
I put the HD audio on top, because on my motherboard the pins are a bit more to the top than the bottom, see the pic (its at the bright spot). I think this looks better then putting it all from the bottom. Plus that will probably interfere with my video card
*edit* I plugged in the 8 pins now (damn that was quite some work, almost no room
) and I neatl tucked away that audio cable between the back I/O panel and the blue heat sink
I wonder what to do with that nasty Audio97 attachment that is dangling around though... I have no use for it.
Anyways yeah I'm gonna take things real slow and think 3 times before doing the next thing. I was totally sweating when I put in the CPU
I never did that before but it was a piece of cake. Just need to get over it and do it, lol. Next is the cooler!
Wish me luck
I'm hoping your stuff will soon be there for you to put your eager hands on as well Edited by Therapy? - 1/31/10 at 8:20am
