Hi guys. So I'm having some issues with my 600T build.


First issue was I could not remove the motherboard standoffs. I placed the motherboard in the case, I was only able to get 5/7 of the holes screwed. There was a mount sticking out one of the holes in couldn't screw anything in and the other hole there was no standoff there. Is this okay? Pics here: http://www.imgur.com/1wmsR.jpeg

Secondly I was able to plug all my 3 fans to the fab adapter. Now I have one molex plug. Where does this go? To the psu directly?


Thirdly my motherboard came with 2 data cables what about the rest? I have the Asrock z77 extreme 4.

Don't I need more sata cables for my optical drive, two hard drives and one ssd?

Here is the cable it came with

I would appreciate the help.

That's perfectly fine, as my case is the same. I don't have 2 screws in, because there are no stand offs for them.

You need to buy the Sata cables, not every board will give you everything. Plus, the Z77 Extreme 4 is one of the lower end models, the higher end boards will give you more than enough SATA cables.

The Molex plug goes to the PSU, that is to power the fan controller.

Thank you for you quick response. I ran one sata cable from my optical drive to Sata 3.0 on my Mobo and the other sata cable from my SSD to Sata 6.0 on my mobo.

Could you please expand on the molex cable to PSU, does this just plug in to the molex adapter on the PSU?

Cables like these:

Plug into this:

Find the molex cables from your PSU and plug one in.

Okay, thank you. It is the just the top molex correct? the other one looks like a fan connector.

In my case I didn't connect any of my fans to the motherboard. I connected all fans in my case to the fan connector which would be connected to psu molex.

I did however, connect my CPU fan to the motherboard, do this sound correct?


Secondly, I'm searching for SATA cables, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


these say "hard drive model", can I not use them for optical drives? It also mentions SATA I and II, how does this relate to SATA 3.0 and 6.0, can you help clarify, thank you.

Yea that sounds right.

Sata II is sata 3.0, SATA 3 is 6.0. Your Optical drive can't run at 6gb so 6gb cables are pointless.

Thank you. I'm having some issue identfying the correspoinding firewire slot on my motherboard. The cable "1394" I do not see it referenced on the Mobo handbook. I fear my motherboard doesnt support firewire?

My second question is that, the USB 3.0 slots on the motherboards is an actuall slot, but on my case, the USB 3.0 is an actual USB cable. I can't route this on the motherboard, where does this go?

Optical drives are SATA I?

I would leave it as SATA III for now since It's backwards compatible and I have no choice, I have to install windows, so I need a cable there, I ordered 5 SATA 1-II cables and 5 SATA III cables


What do you think about the USB 3.0 situation?

Can this work

They're all backwards compatible.


If I remember correctly, that cable has to go around the back of your case through a pcie slot to your mobo.

Here you have a better look at that top slot which has the hole for routing your USB 3.0 cable out the back to plug into the rear of your motherboard.

I went the adapter route, I went with this

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00695M56M/ref=oh_deta...

I realized however, that the USB header on the motherboard is 19 pin but the adapter is 20 pin, will it still work.

I know the last pin is a blank, but I'm worried about the veritcal orientation, will it be okay? I think there is a rectangular notch to mark which way
