Dumb question, but does my internet ethernet plug into the motherboard?
Hopefully building when all parts get here.

Yes it does. You will have to load the drivers for it to work though.

drivers for the motherboard or the modem? How does it work, does windows detect evrything then give me the option to update drivers or do I have to download them manually?

Newegg build a pc part 2
Part 3
Use these to help you. These were my guide and the only tricky part was the case fans. Everything else was fine.

The psu exhaust? it should be facing down sending warm air out of the case. It may even say on the psu.

Yes,the fan side of the psu should be facing down to bottom of case, just curious because this makes all the labels upside down

I've got the CPU in, the 212 cooler on and the memory in the mb so far, I may need you to explain how I should hook the fans up since the r4 has the fan control

I think they make the label like that for when it gets put in the top of a case. Can you report your parts list when you get the chance. I'll help with the fans when I get the chance to explain.

When connecting power and reset switches the black goes on the ground pin right.
What's the bigger black cable with blue pin connector that runs with the led,per,reset cables in the r4?

negative

thats an intake. hot air exhausts out the back of that model
eta: most enthusiasts cases will have fan slot (good ones will have a filter too) on the bottom of the case so the psu can draw clean cool air in.

Cool, yes it has a hole. Question about the psu to CPU connectors... I have one big one,shielded looks like 24 pin. One that says CPU and psu each end 8 pins, and one that is 8 pin on psu side leading to two 4 pin on CPU side. Do I connect all of these??

Hate to even ask this, but inside the 24 connector from the psu, one of the slots looks like its missing the little copper sleeve that the others have, will that be a problem?
