Need help with new system

I just got my brand new system from Cyberpower PC (yes, I'm lazy and work too much, got it built from them) but I'm kind of a newb to stuff. I'm tech savvy, but there are things I'm not up to date with so I just need a little help.

I'll order my questions to make it a lot easier to address.

pictures of this random black square with screw holes (question 2)


Alright, those are the images with their addressed questions!

Question 1: The entire system came just as seen, along with the fans being tied together like that (yes, they really left it like that and didn't even hook them up), but I read in the manual they're for the HDD to be cooled. However, I have a SSD. Did they simply forget to hook them up, or do I not need it with my lone SSD in my computer? Included an image of the SSD for the lulz.

Question 2: What is this large black panel with screwholes for? Is it for a radiator, or an intensely large fan? I literally couldn't find it in the user manual or anywhere at all.

Question 3: Referring to the fans in picture 1... Do I need to replace those? I am considering 125mm x 25mm maximum cooling fans, but I'm not sure if I even need them. The right side panel of the system, identical to the left I pictured, has similar fan holes, but no fans in them. Should I put fans in them?

I do apologize for the needy question but appreciate all the help I can get :)

    #1 Plug them into the MoBo, and be careful in the future when opening the case.

    #2 Can't really tell from the picture :/ You may just be talking about the HDD/SSD rack.

    #3 The third pic is where what looks like a 200mm fan might go if you wanted one. (I think.)
  4. So I should use the fans? As in ill need them, or are they unnecessary? And yes, the picture is dark. It's just a picture of the SSD/HDD rack with one lone SSD in it. That's why I am unsure if I need the fans or not, I just have one lone SSD in my computer, and I'm unsure if I need to hook up the cooling fans for it or not.

    Also, I was thinking about ordering 8225 mm fan, but I'm unsure where would fit.

    Looks like you need a 220mm fan.

    Also I would suggest plugging in the fans, you don't need to though.
