Here are some of my problems I bought a M5A99X EVO Motherboard I put the AMD phenom II CPU in and the fan, Put the hard drive Seagate 500GB in hooked up the power cable to it, but on the Motherboard it has 4 dual socket SATA connections I don't know if I am suppose to put SATA cable in bottom of the black SATA port or to 1 of the 3 White ones, Also from the Lite on dvd burner have power wire going to it but I do not know where from the dvd burner I am suppose to hook the communications cable to the motherboard? I have a 2" ribbon cable that came with the motherboard and have no idea where that connects to or if it is needed anyways.
