  1. I looked and the SeaSonic is fine to use with your MOBO (4-pin) and CPU.

    The SP-B700 conforms to the ATX v2.3 standards ; link http://www.onyougo.com/silver-power-sp-b700-power-supply-units-specs_pi1636591e2

    My best guess is the place you brought it to hasn't figured-out that the (8-pin) CPU power is a breakaway 4+4 pin. It's no different than the 20+4-pin (24-pin) main power.

    My feeling is at some point it's good to learn for yourself and it's not that complex. Simply connect the following to the listed devices and try to have some organization running the wires, and to aide with organization use some zip ties after everything is in working order to clean up loose and air restricting cabling; much of the organization depends on your case.

    CPU (note the 4+4-pin breakaway/either works):

    MOBO:

    DVD, HDD and SSD:

    HD 6870 (note the 6+2-pin breakaway/use (2) of the 6-pins; most HD 6870 are 2 x 6-pin PCIe):
  4. CPU and MOBO power locations per this image:

  8. Yep those are correct and as you described. Just don't use a PCIe power for the CPU power.
