I started with the motherboard and put the CPU in place used a dot of paste over the CPU and placed my heatsink over it and firmly tightened it in place. Next I put both sticks of ram into their corresponding spots on the mobo and then screwed everything into place in my case. Next came the CD-Drive and the Hard Disk followed by the power supply. I hooked the 24 pin into the motherboard and the 8pin into the CPU power slot and also attached the CPU fan to the CPU fan slot. Next I attached the power cords to supply power from the PSU to the Hard Drive and CD Drive and plugged in the SATA cables to both of them and attached them to the SATA Cable slots on the motherboard.
Now this is where I am thoroughly confused. I slid my graphics card into the SLI slot and took the cables for the powerswitch/LED's from the case and read through my motherboard manual to find where I should plug what. The only problem is the manual's color coding is different than the cases and the labeling on the wires do not indicate positive or negative aside from one cable.
So my questions are have I done everything correctly so far and can I assume the color wires are positive and the white wires negative?
I'll post a list of the exact model numbers of all the parts in the next post.
Any help is appreciated, I'd really like to get this up and running asap.
