It will have two connectors that go to the mobo, A 24pin and a 4/8 pin near the cpu.
for everything else just find the appropriate looking cable end and hide the rest.
That's it? Just 2 cables? I thought I would end up using every single one of them.

What about the SATA cables on my PSU?

DON'T DO THAT. If you stick a 1394 header into USB header you can damage your mobo. And they are identical most of the time. But they are 9 times out of ten labeled. Just check the manual. Explains everything.

Just do some google and youtube, its the most simple thing you can learn(no offense), heck why not even just open up the Pc you got right now and get to know he components and remove them / play around?

First learn what the connectors and cables are

Get the mobo out, install the CPU and heatsink, install it on the case...then connect the AUX 4 pin / 8 pin power cable then connect the 20/24 pin ATX connector.. connect the Sata cabels to your HDD and then connect the molex / power cables to the HDD.. install the ram, install the graphics cards and dont forge to install the fans ...

just a few cables...cant get any simpler


or you know what? take all the components to a local Pc shop and pay the guy 10 / 20 bucks to give you a hand, or just call a friend who know a bit more then you do

One Question for you OP, how can you buy all this stuff and not know how to hook it all up??

I did alot of research on OCN as well as other sites on the internet before I even ordered my case and I started to plan back when the HD 4XXX was top cards and PHII's where coming out but now I just got the main items for my Sandy build just to show how much changing I did to the planed build.

Just think of what you need to power. The Mobo needs power. It needs the 24,8 sometimes 20,4 Pin depends on you MoBo. The you will attach the components like HD, Optical Drive, Fans, Lighting if you have any. All those needs power. High end video cards needs power too. it's the 6 or 8 pin. The rest will be reserve. Connectors are idiot proof too so you won't accidentally connect it to the wrong one.

There are no sata cables on your PSU there are legacy cables which power SATA drives and stuff. You will need legacy coonector to power say SATA DVD drive then a sata cable to go from drive to sata connector on mobo. Its hard to say EXACTLY what you need because depending on what you have for hardware depends on what cables you'll use.

I didn't. I'm just transferring all the hardware from my NZXT Apollo to my CM 690 II Advanced.

Check the MoBo manual. It should have a diagram. If not, then it will give you instructions on where to plug what in. Plus, look for names and labels beside the connector. What brand of MoBo do you have?
