Building ATM

Building my new system from the parts this community helped me pick out. I am running into a few minor issues, but nothing horrible. I am currently using 3 hard drives, 1 ssd and 2 1tb spinpoints. I am going to use ssd for OS and the spinpoints in raid, do the sata cables need to be plugged in any certain way?....Also, i am using ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 and i have a coolermaster 1200w silent pro. I notice that the mobo has a 4 prong eatx12v with another 4 right next to it but it was covered. Should i remove the cover and use the 4+4 prong power to it? or use the initial 4? That is pretty much all I have left to do besides mount heatsink and insert vid card.
