Hi! I am currently buiding my first gaming PC, and have been for like, 8 hours, Lol. The first time I got stuck on placing the mobo in the case, then the wiring. Well i got everything done besides the wiring now. I just unplugged all the plugs out of the mobo, besides the SATA Cables. My Fans have the plugs that go into the PSU (Big 4-Pin, sorry forget the name. Im still really new to this stuff.) Then in most videos these plugs are black, but in mine they are colord. They are the ones saying H.D.D LED, Power SW, Reset SW, Pow LED+, and Power LED-. My PSU has Fours 4 pins, two 8 Pins, 1 6 Pins, and 1 24 Pins sticking out of the back of it. Heres my parts list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/eCPe

If anyone could either 1. Make me a picture tutorial on all these parts and wires for wiring.



2. Find a video on wiring that is compatible with my Parts

I may be able to pay up to $20 for it.

The 4pin connector is called - molex

Simple. Read the documentation. If necessary, you can download manual for your motherboard from Gigabyte.

The connections labelled H.D.D LED, Power SW, Reset SW, Pow LED+, and Power LED- connect to the mobo and not to the PSU.

They are attached at the section ringed in red on the below picture. For specifics as to where they go in that section check out the manual which can be found here.

Tom`s August $1000 build.

This system would whoop the ass off of the $1000 you just spent.


For those that didn't manage to read the question he's looking for help wiring his new build not a critique of it's performance.

OP must be working on computer right now. It`s been an hour and a half - no reply.

@OP apologies for being critical of your build.


Enjoy!

Can you double check what mobo you have as the one in the picture is not the same as you listed in the parts picker.

Ok thanks, has your webcam reversed the image as the board and PC in general look mirrored?
