I have a Crucial M550 SSD installed ready for the OS installation and then when the OS is installed I will connect the WD 1 TB 3.5-inch SATA HD, So will have 2 come the end. Edit* Your previous post iammykl, yes, will connect the HD after the instal for the reason you mentioned but thanks for pointing out what number it should be plugged into, not looked that.
Also, I have the GPU installed, as PhillPower2 advised, literally all I have left to do is connect the GPU to the PSU. If you look at the images on page 2, the first image, should I use that 8 pin bottom socket to to connect the GPU. The cable I have has 8 pin at one end with 2x 6+2 pins at the other. The reason I want to confirm if this is right as the 8 pin socket on the PSU (1st image page 2) seems to be labelled "4+4 CPU" and is 6 pin and socket above it seems to be labelled "6+2 PCIE" and is 6 pin. Just want to know which on I should be using.
If I use the top one (1st image page 2), "6+2 PCIE" 6 pin, I do not have a cable that will fit the 2x 6pin GPU sockets but this seems the more logical one to use, mainly becuase it is labelled PCIE and not GPU.
If I use the bottom one (1st image page 2), labelled "4+4 CPU" and is 8 pin then I do have a cable with 2x 6pin sockets for the GPU but the fact it seems to be labelled "4+4 CPU" has me confused.
Sorry if this has all got confusing or I am making it sound more complicated or not being clear - a newbie as you can tell.
Also, just looked at the manual online for CX600M and it says it has only "1x 4+4-pin (CPU, works as either 4 or 8-pin)" so is this the empty 8 pin socket on the PSU or the fixed cable with the 8 pin socket labelled "CPU" that connects to the MoBo in the top left ??? Sooo very confused.
Here is a better image of the one I posted on page 2;
*Edit, ok looks like this guy had the exact same issue, even used the same image I found but I bothered to rotate it , and he didn't die when he switched it on so it looks like the 8 pin empty slot can be used for PCI-E to connect the GPU to the PSU even if it seems that that slot is labelled "4+4 CPU", corsoir should replace the ampersand with "or", be less confusing, it it works that is, going to lie down and will test it in the morning now, after checking this post for health warnings first
