on the power supply will be a white 24 pin connector

some ps it a 20 pin plus a 4pin.
then on the mb will be another white 4 or 8 pin connector that has to be connected.
from the case header you need to connect the power/reset/hd and power led.
with the sata power the connector is keyed "L" make sure you put it on the right way.
with the mb lining up in the case you have to first put in the mb i/o shield in the slot. in the back of the case.
then dry fit it once to line up where the brass standoffs have to go.
with the standoff in the right place put the mb back in..you have to press it forward into the i/o shield foam. you want to put the 4 corners of the mb in first.

the integrated components (usb ports, hdmi ports) do not match up onto the case, how do i make holes on it to match?

You don't. Your motherboard should have come with a matching i/o shield. Pop out the one that came with the case and replace it with the one that came with the motherboard.

Then you need the backplate from the case that you removed the mobo from. :)
