Default First time builder question

Hello, I am currently trying to hook up my motherboard Asus sabertooth x58 http://www.legitreviews.com/images/r...bertooth_1.jpg using a coolermaster GX-750 PSU.


My issue is I have never done this before and am lost as to which wires from the GX-750 go to the

1. 8-pin connector at top left of mobo pic.
2. 24-pin connector by ram

There is a 20 +4 which im going to assume goes to the 24-pin mobo connection.. but i'm lost as to what goes to the 8-pin. I assume the 4+4 pin but don't want to mess this up, so i want to be sure.

EDIT - Found this answer

Also, where do I hook in the Power switch (2 pin) and Reset switch (2 pin) to the MOBO?

Thanks for any assistance.

The front panel pins should look like this...

consult your mobo's manual for detailed diagrams of where each particular connector goes.


4+4 = CPU
20+4 = Mobo
6 pin = GPU (PCI-e)
EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked 2GB MSI R9 270X // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black
