one unlabeled plug (coming from the top 200mm fan - a second wire runs from it to a 3-speed setting option), another comes from the back fan, and two more come from the fans in the front...
All of your fans will be powered by molex connectors that come from your power supply, except one can be plugged into the system fan header I labled green in one of my last pictures, so get that cord and plug it into your power supply on one end... and the other ends will have male molex connectors that will fit into the female molex connectors from the fans. This is what molex connectors look like... HERE
Yours are probably black though, not white.
three small, two-pin connectors labeled "H.D. LED", "RESET SW", and "PWR SW"
HD LED is the Hard Drive LED... so look in your motherboard manual, and it will tell you exactly what pins to plug it into. I have labeled that area in the photo "Case Wires" circled in blue.
RESET SW stands for Reset Switch, again, look in the motherboard manual and it will tell you exactly what pins to plug it into in that blue circled area in the picture "Case Wires"
PWR SW stands for Power Switch. Same as the HD LED and Reset, consult your motherboard manual. REMEMBER: The black wire leading to these plugs is the negative... that will help. The power switch doesn't matter as it just completes a circuit... I guess that may be the same for all those switches really.
two large black cables, one says "1394" at the base (10 small pins), and IEEE -1394 COMPLIANT" among other things along the cord
I labled that with a red circle in one of the last pics I provided... HERE
one says HD AUDIO, the other says AC'97, both small 10 pin connectors.
This is for the Audio ports on the front of your case. Use HD Audio, AC 97 will be left unplugged. I labeled this area with a teal colored circled labeled AUDIO.
a third black cable split into two, but all go into one small 10 pin connector that is labeled "USB"
I labeled this area with orange, see it? Use either one of the USB ports on the motherboard.
This is the USB Cable for the front USB ports on your case.
as well, there are cables that need to be plugged into the DVD writer, the hard drive, and the video card...
The power plugs that you will use for the DVD writer and the hard drive are SATA Power Connectors. Here is what they look like... HERE
These will be on one of the modular cables that you have to plug into your power supply, then those connectors will be strung along that cable... there is probably 3 or 4 of them.
The data cables are SATA cables. This is what they look like... HERE
Your motherboard should have come with at least a couple. One end gets plugged into the blue SATA ports I have circled and the other end gets plugged into the DVD writer. Same goes for the HDD. NOTE: The white SATA ports are for a RAID controller... lets not mess with that right now. Maybe never will.
Does this help? Don't be afraid to ask more questions... I'm sure it seems quite hard at first... but it's really simple, just plug the right connector into the right port. Let me know if this helps...
EDIT: I didn't link correctly to the 1394 header... try that link again... sorry.
