Question: Are they all compatible? I'm trying to connect the case to the mobo/PSU and can't really seem to figure it out on my own. I received the case as a gift, so...

Ah yeah I already read that a while ago. I already assembled all my hardware together in my old case from scratch after I bought it all from newegg, I just don't know if my case will work with my mobo/PSU, because some things (one example, reset SW cable, the slot[RSTSW1] on my mobo doesn't have pins there and I don't know how to connect them) and if not then when which one do I need to replace (if not both); I would have researched ahead of time but alas it was a present.

So what does your MOBO have for a reset switch connector?

It's like... http://www.newegg.co.....D Motherboard

In the top right corner there, there's two parallel black sqaures (underneath the two white circles). One of them is RSTSW1 and the other is PWRSW1; there aren't any pins in them. additionally, it's been too long for me to remember how exactly I built it all together the first time, in my old case. I got a lot of assistance from a good friend (that I've been waiting for to sign on and help me for like 5 days, getting impatient and posting here) and don't remember some of the specifics.

Also, the case manual doesn't give any info about where to plug in the fans, just details about their performance. They seem like they go into the PSU, but there are six fans and only 3 slots open on the PSU, so

Yeah lets use your picture from now on.

So since you've confirmed that that's where the power and reset go.. ah... "how" do they go?

Ok now that is the trick. Most of the time the pin 1 will go toward the top left of the board looking at the picture.
Each color is a different connection so that you would have to either look very closely at or if you have the MOBO manual it will show the layout.
If you don't have the manual you can get HERE
Just click on the Manual Tab and it should download for you automatically.
There you can also download all the original drivers for your MOBO is you don't have them and burn them to a cd for future reference.

PWRSW1:
This is an on-board Power Switch button.
RSTSW1:
This is an on-board Reset button.

^ That's all the manual says about it :/

That helps alot.
The first is the actual power and the other is the reset button.
In the manual there should be a mobo schematic with the location of the connections and what each is.

Yeah, I've got it open and I printed that page. Just.. I still don't know where those cables go. The only things that are labeled "RST" or "PWR" are those two I copypasted earlier. And it doesn't seem like anything can be connected there. Sorry if I'm retarded and this is something completely obvious I'm missing

Do you see the multi color coded pins where I pointed out earlier?
That is where the connectors plug to.
Now the picture should show which set is what.
If it doesn't then it will be marked on the MOBO by the pins somewhere.
