So I finally built my first PC from the ground up! But, i have yet to actually turn it on... and this is the first PSU i have installed by myself. If I didnt hook up the front panel to the motherboard correctly, is anything in danger of simply breaking? Lets say I put the Reset switch on the Power Switch connector, what is the worse that will happen? Also, if I connected something improperly, is there a chance that it could destroy a component? I'm really nervous about starting it up. I just dont want to end up sending it to a early grave for a minor mistake. Any tips? Am I just being overcautious?

That phrase "The worse thing that will happen is it wont turn on" is a huge relief. :) 

So I just booted it up with my fingers crossed and it actually works! But of course I forgot to plug in the PS/2 Keyboard before boot. Woops. ^^; But at least now I can say I built something from scratch. :p  The rig has some older parts but I plan to replace them with some newer when I get the $.

hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i can't stop laughing :D  !!

AMD Phenom 955 BE + Xfire 5770 with 16 GB of RAM xD

it's an overkill mate :D  , am using an FX-8350 8 cores processor with an HD 7870 and my RAMs are 8 GB only ( it's more than enough )
honestly 16 GB of ram is waste of money if you are looking to play games with that rig because the maximum need of RAM for gaming is 8 GB only .

anyway , Good luck buddy , your rig is not bad but you should upgrade that CPU to an FX-8320 and an HD 7850
at least if you are looking to play next gen games on max setting with good FPS .

btw , can you close the thread by choosing the best answer if it possible ?
