Have you connected up the front USB sockets and the sound.

You are most welcome ArionIV :)

The saving grace here is that no harm has apparently been done + you have learned so much along the way that you will not only be able to upgrade and/or build your own computers in the future and so not need the paid for services of anyone else ;)

Yes had a good day out thanks Michael :thumbsup: Back to reality today with the 4yr old grandson buzzing around the place :happy:

Sorry but the manual's again just too bare for my liking. I must admit I founf youtube videos of guys actually fixing up the case more helpful.But problem again is nobody mentions the fan. Once they place MoBo, make PSu connections, they complete the rig and show off the working fans and LED lights.

Only the three fans that came with the case. Trouble is there seem to be 4 of those 3 pin connectors in my hands. No sign of a molex on the case alhough here're 2-3 molexes on the PSU.

You will not need to use any molex conncters for the fans. You will just use the little 3 pin???? plugs.
The cable from the rear fan plugs into Sys fan 1 MB manual #3, on the left side of the board. fix then post back.

Ok I needed to make it a little bit clearer.

These three fans have got a fan controller, so their connectors go tothis controller's molex as I heard on Hi-Tech Legion's video, they didn't show how it;'s done. Further they said that this fan-controller molex needs to be connected to the PSU molex. There was some talk about male and female molex being plugged into one another.

And also this case supports 7 fans. Isn't it so that the extra fans go to the CHA-FAN 4-pin type, and also I had tried individual connections but its not even a loose fit:

3-pin fan cnonectors to 4-pin CH-FAN on the MoBo?

Also, there's a black block with 8-9 pins just like the yellow q-connector. Where does that go?

The rear exhaust should be controlled by the MB, the same as the CPU fan, this is for safety as when the MB temp rises, the rear fan will speed up automatic to expel more heat. Please look in the MB manual page 34. they are 4 pin sockets but a 3 pin plug will fit, but only one way as there is a little key block. the rear fans goes on D

What is written on the black block, HD or AC-

I have now got your case manual, but very late so going offline. I know this is a bit frustrating, but please do not just plug things in as you might think. I would also advise not to switch on until we know all wiring is correct.

First, if you have not already done so, connecting your fans.
the image is just to show the plug/socket type, ignore the cable.
