The plugins are all there. The motherboard header is located on the bottom left of the board near the edge and is labeled "AAFP". The case probably has two audio headers. One is legacy AC'97 and the other is HD Audio. You'll want to plug only the HD audio cable into the AAFP motherboard header.

Two cables plug into the DVD drive. One comes from the power supply and the other is a data cable. Your motherboard should have come with data cables. You should have everything you need.

ok.. the asus has the right angle sata link, so does the power supple but is there supposed to be alot of force used to connect the two? or should it go in rather easy? cause i tried it once and to me it was alil forced to get in there

Both cables are keyed with an "L" shape. They only fit one way. If you have them keyed correctly it shouldn't take too much force to push the cables on.

Ikeyed them together right but just still took alil force (like you would when you close the processor door)my thing is since this is my first ever build if I meat something that doesnt just slide right in I am standoffish to apply force cause I dont want to break anything.
