I am new to computer building but have always wanted to try. Anyhow, my motherboard is a GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD4P and the power supply is a Corsair TX 750W. The motherboard has a 2x4 ATX 12v connector and a 2x12 ATX main power connector. Do I plug-in both connectors?

Thank you in advance.

Timop is correct.... here are two visual references from my Step-by-Step Guide listed in my signature.

24pin Connection: (Images is a 20+4pin, not 12+12pin)

8pin Connection:

Thank you both. I only did the 24 pin mobo. When the computer wouldn't start (started for a second and shut down), I figured I had done something wrong and took it mostly apart. When I was reconnecting, that's when I thought I'd better ask those with experience.
