Default Confused.

I'm trying to install my system and I got stuck...I already mounted the mobo, connected the memory and psu...But not sure how to connect the mobo to the case. Theres so many little wires that are connected to the case that I do not know where to connect them to the mobo. I did one of these before but that was 8 years ago lol....

Its a Nzxt Guardian and a ASUS p6t. Can anyone point me to any guides or help me out?

sHIT i forgot to get thermal compound for the CPU. Do i need that?

There's a connector in the very bottom right corner of the motherboard. It's marked 'PANEL'

The 'Power LED', 'SPEAKER', 'IDE LED', 'Power SWitch' and 'RESET' switch all go here.

Use the ASUS Q-Connector. It makes this a lot easier.

You will definitely need Thermal compound. Don't operate it without the stuff.
