I bought this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

its being shipped.


I am afraid of where to plug stuff in THE PSU. I know the end of the cable will say PCI E, Sata etc but where does that part go in the PSU? Bunch of slots behind but which one?

They are all labeled , it's easy to distinguish where they go.

I own 2 of them.

if you look at the 4th pic in the link you provided, you can see it's written on the psu.

Well i know but if you open the link and press on the pictures you'll see one of all the ports. It says CPU/PCI E and SATA but do all modular cables only go into one of those ports? or can i mistakenly put the end of a sata cable in say a PCI E?

THEY are labeled and you won't have any trouble , don't worry it's easy to install.

The pic I posted above shows all connections labeled.

ok so all i need is 24 for the MSI Z87 GD65 right?

So the CPU power goes in the 2nd slot from the top right corner....

PCI E is first slot

MB is all the way on the top left. SATA is right below the sata text but whats IDE

Ok good. But why do i need the 8 pin motherboard POWER too? I thought i only needed 24 for the mobo, 8 for the CPU (which is on the top right) and the 8 ur talking about is in the lower left...

PS: CPU/PCie is for the GPU only right? Cause the only CPU connector in the top left of the mobo which is lower left of the PSU...so why they write that?

You will need to use to 8 pins PCIE for your card , that card has to 8 pins for power.

yeah 2 8 pins but ONE cable goes into the PSU for Both? and thats the TOp Right very first one...sorry for bothering man. If you could just use the SS you took and write in red saying what its for, that'd end it all now :) 

no matter what you're getting solution.

Gee getochkn...calm down!

Whatever. For the HDD and DVD Drive ill plug into the sata ports which i only see ONE of.

Damn Getochkn...I really needed to know.

Ok. for the sake of you being pissed as hell Ill just ask ONE more thing. How many sata ports are there? I only see one right below the "sata" word

Hard drive , motherboard 2 connections, video card 2 as you know, optical drive if you have one.

Your optical and HDD will be sata powered FROM psu.

The number of SATA ports can easily be determined by going to the manufacture's site and looking it up. Even the new egg page you links lists the number, so why should someone go look up something you can easily find from either of those two sources.

Best solution

There you go! But when you say " 2" you mean 2 slots on the PSU? Because 2 mobo conncections i understand. 2 GPU i know, 6 and 6 go in the GPU but only ONE connector goes into the PSU. i would assume?

Just forget it :/  I picked a solution and this is what i know


MOBO 24 pin: TOP LEFT CORNER
CPU 8 PIN: Right below the mobo 24 pin
GPU (which needs 12 pin): UPPER RIGHT CORNER (only that)
HDD: Under sata
DVD: Some where thats sata...i think its to the left of the GPU one correct?


Ok....RIGHT?
