haha, yea i have the manual, and found everything extremely straight forward up until this part. I didn't think this was the way to do it, but thought I'd give it a shot.
I'll take a look at those links you gave me but first I'll try to explain my situation. I connected the large power supply chord to the motherboard. I then have two other... chords..? coming out of the power supply. One is a 2v2 male plug, and the other one is a 2x4 male plug.
I have one sata cable that goes from my hard drive to the motherboad, and one going from my dvd drive to my motherboard. I also have one power sata cable going from my hdd to my dvd drive, also with a female 1x4 plug.
I have two fans and both of them have a 1x4 male/female plug. The fans do go directly to the motherboard though right?
i also have a lot of extra cables that came with the power supply, but nothing seems to be able to connect with the two cables coming out of the power supply itself. I am confused!
*edit* neither link really related to my problem :S
