Hey guys, I am needing some help with these motherboard components, I’ve transferred the motherboard to a bigger case and bought a new and better PSU, I’m having trouble with the components that I haven’t plugged cables in to yet, I am not sure of what the circled comments are for, but I know that the 2 white SATA ports are better than the Pin Connector SATA ports. Also does the black SATA port below the white one need to have a cable in it or no?

And I’m also having trouble with the power switch, HDD LED and so fourth, the old PSU had an all in one cable for that but with my new PSU, I have seperate smaller cables.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you :)

Make and model motherboard? Version?

The absolute starting point is to go online and find the applicable Motherboard Installation User Guide/Manual via the manufacturer's website.

Then check the website's pages for motherboard updates, QVL's (Qualified Vendors List) , related Forums, and FAQs.

Read the manual and work out all of the required steps to reassemble motherboard, new PSU, and all other components into the new case.

Do the same for the new PSU. Get the applicable installation/user manual.

Be very careful about the new PSU and any power connections you make. Do not mix and match cables between old PSU and new PSU.

Every connection must map exactly.

Plan out the reassembly step by step. If something is not clear then stop until the problem can be worked out.

Be sure to read all warnings, fine print, and any other referenced documents.

Details matter.

If a show stopper problem is encountered then post accordingly with as much information and additional photographs as you can provide.

pic 1. clear CMOS jumper nothing to connect their.
pic 2 if your not using enough drives nothing to do their.
pic 3 just a general picture no information. EDIT the 2 cables going over the cooler don't look right again need the exact motherboard but that should be 1 x 4 pin not 2 cables.
pic 4. need the exact motherboard and case your using that looks more like a front audio connector instead of a front panel connector.

And there are 4 pins in the CPU connector, it just came with a 2x4 pin cable

And it’s a front panel connector because on the old PSU it had front panel engraved on the cable
