    Installation Woes

    So parts finally came in and I've manage to assemble the entire case until I got to hooking up the power supply, sata cables, case fans etc....there are wires everywhere and I'm pretty confused (even after going through my motherboards directions).

    Just to clarify; everything is already installed inside the case but nothing is connected.

    The build:

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($189.99 @ Microcenter)
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.99 @ Newegg)
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Pro3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($89.99 @ Amazon)
    Memory: G.Skill Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($39.98 @ Outlet PC)
    Storage: Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($114.99 @ Newegg)
    Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($71.68 @ Outlet PC)
    Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card ($273.98 @ SuperBiiz)
    Case: NZXT Source 220 ATX Mid Tower Case ($49.99 @ Amazon)
    Power Supply: Antec Neo Eco 520W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($58.98 @ Newegg)
    Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($18.98 @ Outlet PC)

    If anyone has a nice guide for that case/mobo combo would be great; couldn't find one. I would post pictures but can't figure out how to post them from phone.

    Newegg has a pretty decent rundown of putting the system together from top to bottom.
