thanks for the help last time.
Got one follow up question though.
I think I installed the PSU correct but just want to ask you guys what would happen if it wasnt installed correctly, if I plugged something in wrong or did not plug in something that needed to be in for example. Is it safe short and long term?
Also it is a bit of a tight fit between the PSU and the cd drive is this ok.
many thanks.

tight as what 1/2" is ok anything beyond that I would say is too tight b/c you cant even get at the plugins in the back of the CD drive and i would start to worry about cross-over heat from the PSU.

As for the PSU as long as you have the connectors plugged in correctly (not backwards / and thats hard to do) you will be fine. There is only 1 connector to the motherbord (a 20 or 24 pin) and it only goes on one way. The same is true for CD drives, Hard Drives, and floppy drives.
