When I mention any connector, refer to this link: http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connec
1) The motherboard connectors are an ATX 24pin and 4 pin ATX +12v lead. See motherboard here:
This completes the motherboard's needs.
2) Next connect the hard drive and DVD drive power connector. See Sata power cable connector.
3) If you did not pull all the cables off the motherboard, then your Sata data cables are still attached. A single cable goes to the hard drive. Repeat for the DVD drive. Port 1 is the hard drive, port 2 is the DVD.
black is 1, white is 2
That completes the basic cabling unless you have other devices/hardware.
