Hello

My first build and I have question about PSU , is that ok if I dont use any of the molex slots which comes on the 2 cables from PSU and instead I hook up everything directly to the mobo? I got almost everything plugged but I didnt used any of the molex slots on the psu cable.

Last question I found in the box which was PSU packed 2 cables , 1 part of the cable got molex connector and the other one have this small head plug with 4 holes ( like it was used for case cables such as HD audio and USB cables )

Thanks !

Best solution

There is no problem if you do not need to use some of the psu connectors. In fact that is exactly the reason why some psu's are modular, so you don't have to store the cables in the case.

I have no idea what cable you are referring to.
What is the psu?
Perhaps a picture of the cable in question?

You do not need them.
If you had a floppy drive, the adapter would be plugged into a molex lead from the psu so it could attach to the floppy drive.
It is not part of the standard complement of leads because virtually nobody uses floppy drives any more.
