Question about hooking up p180b to power

I have a p180b case and a asus p5b mobo. This is my first build so I am a little confused about hooking up the cables. I hooked up the HDD LED I, PWR SW, RESET SW and the POWER LED but there is also a HDD LED II that doesn't have a place for it to hook up to so I was wondering where that goes. Also for the audio. I just ordered a sound card so that isn't here yet but I assume I should hook up the audio cables to the sound card and not the mobo? Thanks for the help.

yeah...if its a creative sound card it u have to mod the cables to the front audio works.

as far as the LED's i dunno i only plugged 1 HDD LED in. When any of my 3 HD's do work it blinks.

I just got the creative sound card and it doesn't look like there is a slot of the adapter that they have on the case. Can anyone lead me in the right direction as in how to hook it up?

Do I have to build a connector like that? Or is there anything else I can do to connect it?

Hey Flan, I have the same case as Peng and I have mine wired the same way. I ALSO have 3 hdds and whenever they are doin their magic, the blue led blinks :wink:
I also did not find a proper hook up for that hdd II wire. I wouldn't worry about it.

Doesn't fit anywhere! Just wrap it up and tuck it away. I have the same board w/ the same case. I have searched high and low to find a home for that HD II, but to no avail. Just hide it away!
