If i just hooked up the basic stuff like USB's, audio, reset cords, and then hooked up all that stuff to the motherboard and flipped the switch could i have hurt the mothherboard? There was a blue light but thats all... no buzzing or noises... none of the fans and the psu fan didnt come on.
Which switch did you flip? If you mean the one on the back of your PSU that's normal - the fans won't start until you push the power button connected to the mobo but an LED will usually come on to show that standby power is available.
Im pretty sure I got the main and cpu hook ups correct. Its wierd though because ive got two fans both are 12v but i dont know where to hook them up... the motherboard only has one 12v hook up but im using that for sli...what should i do?
What connector are you using for SLI? Some boards have an extra IDE-HD-style connector near the PCIe graphics slots. Or are you talking about the cooling fans for the northbrdge and southbridge? Anyway, just hook the case fans up directly to the PSU. They should have some adapter to plug into a hard disk plug.
