1) Power: Besides the 24pin which others should I have connected? There is an 8pin a 4pin and the 4pin Molex EZ Plug.
Do I need to connect them all/will it hurt anything if I do?
My power supply has the 24pin(which is plugged in)
an 8pin (which says something about intel in the manual but is marked CPU2, but is plugged in)
and another "8"pin which is two 4pins split. One half says CP (which is plugged in) the other the other half says U1
I also have the modular molex cable attached to the EZ Plug- which leads me too...

2) Molex- how much of what can I have plugged into one chain? As of right now I only have one plugged into the PSU with the rear fan, the front I/o panel and fan controller(CM Storm Trooper), and then into the EZ-Plug power on the motherboard

If anyone has the same motherboard...and MAYBE the same case, I could really use some help and would GREATLY appreciate it.:confused::eek:

Thank you guys very much! So if I plug in the PSU to the wall and turn on the mobo to flash the bios, I'm not going to fry anything?

You'll be fine, they only really fit in one way anyway! If you do damage the board it'll be a difficult job as the board will pull the current it needs you can't push too much into the board.
