My motherboard is ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 and my case is Silverstone PS06B-W. I can provide can scans of the manual for pin header guide if needed.


Thanks,

Page 12 shows the header layout and page's 35 , 36 of the manual are pretty clear regarding the pinout's, what is it that is confusing you ?

The manual I D/L'd shows the case panel header as item 24 on the layout on P12, the header on the right hand lower corner, and I see the pwr/rst pins marked on there, its just below the physical powerbutton

Clicked your link,
on newegg page, click details tab
on righthand side opposite supported cpu itemisation is manf product page link
top left box has a manual download link, click
I downloaded from european server as I'm U.K., take whichever is closest to you
and then open in adobe,
page 12 has a layout of the mobo, zoom in until you can read the pinout on the bottom right hand corner

I still don't see a "SW POWER" and PLED is in two places O.o

This is my first time building a PC if it is not obvious enough ;)

Thanks man :)  WTH is the SW Power anyways? I don't see it listed ANYWHERE! O.o

Are the Reset SW and Power SW for the power and reset buttons on the front of the case?

As this is your first build, sections three and four here http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/288241-13-read-post... will help you massively, mostly four for now, three once your assembled
This is a zoomed in shot of the bottom of your mobo,

the header I ringed is where most of the cables from the frontpanel of the case get plugged into, yes the pled can go in either the one on there or the other pin, no difference
pwrbtn is short for powerswitch,
reset is the two pins below that, hdd is hdd led and pled is the power light
Need sleep now, I'll look in later when I get up though :) 
have fun man :)

Ok so now I am down to is.. where PLED go.. or rather the order of + and - of em.. I will be getting my final parts to build my PC tomorrow so I hope I won't run into any more issues! :) 

Edit: One problem with that guide, I install the PSU first and plug it in to ground myself.

Edit 2: I have a few cha fan slots and PWR slots for my MB can I plug any 3pin fan into either oh and do I still need to use that molex power or is that just optional?

Popped stock cooler in *was tired of waiting for after market one to arive to test computer*

Power button works, PLED works.

Thanks for the help everyone!!!

For some reason not all the fans where spinng.. but thats prob due to the fact that the MB has those fanchan disabled by default

edit: Oh and locking in the CPU is scary!! If you have never done it before lol required more force then I thought I would need. Thought it was going to bed and it is 6:15 AM lol ... :D  :D  *Faints*

Glad you got sorted ok man, as long as your cpu fan is spinning you'll be ok, any others can go off the psu as you need,
have fun with it :) 
and Thank you for B.a.

That sucks... The only "bad" thing I can say about any of my parts is the fact that odly I have very few molexs on my PSU..

But I know that was going to be like that and it was a $70 *after rebate* 850w semi modular Power Supply :D 


OH and the case does not allow me to plug in the Mini HDMI to HDMI converter that came with my graphics card :(  it was too bulky..

But is is all good I will just use my dual DVI to hdmi that I have laying around ;)  just heads up on the

I finally fixed my issue :p 
My power supply has tons of molexs though, but that's probably because it costs over $200
