Okay so I'm to the point of putting together my rig that I am connecting all the power cords. I've ran into a serious snag with the Front Panel Connectors. My motherboard is the DFI P965-S. After plugging the cords in I can find the slots to (by using the mobo manual) I am left with HD Audio/AC'97 cord with no apparent place to plug in, the available ports are J4 and J9 (but these are labeled as USB ports in the manual). There's also a 5 pin outlet, but it would be short. As you can tell I have no idea what I'm doing here or what I'm plugging things into.
Also I have a ZALMAN 9500A 92mm cooler for my Q6600. When I go to plug the cooler into my mobo, the "CPU FAN" plug is 4 pin, however my actual plug is only 3 pin. Do I just shove it on??? There is a "CASE FAN" plug available that is 3 pin. Should I just plug it into that?
I apologize if this is hard to read. Wording it the best I can. Thanks in advance. . .
