I recently bought the cosair 500r and yheres a cable that's labeled 1394. What does this cable do and is it important? My motherboard doesn't seem to have a port for it. Also, does the power button wires and led light wires have to go in certain spots or so they all have a specific spot on the f_panel?
Thanks for the help!

It's for the firewire header, it's color orange and CAUTION: do not insert it on the USB header or it will fry it or cause extensive damage to your motherboard.

Its for Firewire. Not used much anymore other than older high end vid cameras. Old tech. The power button goes to the one that most likely says pwr_btn and and the LED to the pwr_LED. Your manual will have a list of what goes where. Follow it and you should be good to go. If you get stuck, list your motherboard model so I can pull up some pics of it.

My motherboard is a ga-78lmt-s2p. I need a picture because it never came with the manual. I also have these little 3 pin connectors that come off from my fans. Where would I plug them into?

Get the manual here. As said above. do NOT plug the 1394 into the usb headers.
