Ok so I have just installed a Corsair CX430 modular PSU into a Bitfenix Prodigy (it seems to fit very well, despite many people saying that modular PSUs are difficult to fit in this case) and since this is the first PSU installation for me I wanted to make sure I didn't make any mistakes :D 

1. Since the Prodigy has the PSU airflow on the bottom of the case, I put the PSU in so that its vent faces the airflow, correct?
2. I have only attached two cables to the PSU, the two sata cables, I have left out the peripheral and PCI cables. Since this machine will not have a graphics card (not at first at least), am I ok?

This is a picture if it helps:

Apologies for the probably dumb questions, but one must start from somewhere XD

Just install the modular cables that you actually need. That is the idea behind the modular cables. If you leave one out for example, and you find that you need another cable later on just plug it into the PSU. And then you are good to go.
