I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this kind of stuff, so if this needs to be locked I would appreciate it if someone would at least point me to the right community?
Anyways my first question is, there are 9 places for screws for my mobo/case but there are only 4 standoffs? Even though three of the nine places for screws have plastic standoffs on there already I am really not sure of where to put these things.
Second question would be, what am I supposed to do with all of these wires? I got as far as plugging in the 3.0 usb, the led lights (which I think might have been done incorrectly), and the power for my mobo (not sure if this is done correctly, see pic), then I was so confused I couldn't go on. I can't even figure out where to plug the fan connectors to, there doesn't seem to be any matching sockets. I don't know where anything goes, when to use which wires, such as 6gb/3gb, etc.
I pretty much don't know how to do anything atm, and the guides I see online are way too general and non-specific, the handbook I have here is too confusing and out of order, and it even skips some crucial steps (It did not even mention standoffs)
Anyways here is my build, any help would be awesome. So far most of the hardware has been fitted in the case, except for the recently detached mobo (standoff issue) and video card. I can also provide pictures if needed.
