After reading articles on Tom's Hardware I finally decided to try and build a computer. This is my first build that took me 8 months to buy all the pieces and I am freaking out because I have 3 wire plugs from the Rosewill case that don't seem to fit anywhere in the ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 mobo.
The ones in question are the POWER, HDD and RESET that come from the case wiring. Any help is appreciated, because this is day 2 that I am trying to figure it out and the Asrock manual/pictures aren't any help.
Also the WD Caviar Blue HDD did not come with any wires, what do I need to get, and where do they plug into the computer?
This is my parts list:
Rosewill Challenger case
ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 mobo
EVGA GeFroce GTX 560 2GB VC
Cooler Master X6 fan
G.Skill Ares 2x4GB 2133Mhz
Caviar Blue 500GB
LiteON 24x DVD/CD drive
Rosewill 630W 80+ PSU
I am using a borrowed computer right now so any help is appreciated so I can get mine running.
Anybody know if the white wire on the Rosewill Challenger case jumpers is Pos or Neg? I purchased a long time ago and lost the owner's manual and I can't find this info anywhere-including Rosewill.com. Thanks
It took me 3 days but I am now typing on my new computer. It took me so long to buy all the parts that I ended up losing the instructions for the case and the video card. Anyways it is running fine with the help of Newegg's Youtube videos and a few calls the manufacturers. I am a little bummed that the CM X6 does not fit into the Rosewill Challenger case, so i will be modding the case. Also to anyone who is also handicapped, don't give up even when nobody is there to help you out - just press on.
Dear admimistrator please close out this thread. Thanks
