Need some help here and hoping someone can help me out. I have purchased the following system below to make a new computer (See end of the post for the parts).
There are a few cables I'm not certain what to do with and where they go on the motherboard from the HAF X 942 Case I have purchased. I have taken some screenshots hoping someone can tell me what they are for and where to place them on the motherboard. Motherboard is a Asus P6X58D-E.
Any help is most appreciated in advance. I have no doubts its something really simple and I just need help.
THIS SHOT IS FROM THE TOP OF THE CASE. I HAVE REMOVED THE TOP SO YOU CAN SEE THE CONNECTORS UNDERNEATH IT:
FRONT OF THE CASE:
AC'97 + HD AUDIO CABLE from the HAF X CASE (WHERE DOES THIS GO AND WHAT IS IT USED FOR?):
2x USB 3.0 Cables coming from the HAF X CASE (WHERE DO THESE GO?):
USB Cable from the HAF X CASE (WHAT SLOT DOES THIS GO IN?):
SATA CABLE FROM THE HAF X CASE (WHAT SLOT DOES THIS GO IN?)
I also wish to create a RAID 0 Array using the 2x Western Digital Black Sata Drives I purchased. There is a part in the case which connects 2 HHD together when you place them in the docking bay. The part just didn't seem want to connect so I removed it. To create the raid array where do what ports do I need to plug the Sata Drives into?
They have their spots labeled on the motherboard, the layout is also in your motherboard manual, the connectors will also only fit in one slot so if it fits it belongs there.
The AC'97, HD Audio allows you to connect a headphone and microphone to the two front panel connectors.
It doesnt matter which ports you plug the HDD's into keep in mind that with RAID 0 if one drive fails you lose ALL your data.
If you want to make the RAID array you will have to go into your BIOS and select the SATA controller to RAID, save and reboot, a screen should popup saying press CTRL-I to configure RAID and do that. Again I advise AGAINST RAID 0.
