Putting together PC right now! Need help!

Got the fan working, thanks! Is the air sposed to blow just out the back or into the case...? Also I have a ton of left over wires from the PSU (didnt install the Video card yet//other fan) but still theres around 6 unused connectors, is this normal?

thanks

you only need to attach one side to the psu.

not necessarily, use one 4 pin from the psu and connect the one fan to the other, saving 1 4 pin from the psu from being used. stats on the comp you're building?

leftover cords are gonna happen unless you have a modular psu(one with cords that you connect to the psu)most people use fans as a system, 1 or 2 fans for intake, and 1 or two fans for exhaust.

Power supplies generally have a TON of extra connectors cause they want to make sure you have enough plugs for just about any situation. I mean in my case you can have 4 hard drives, and 4 CD/DVD drives, 2 video cards, etc.

Plus some may be SATA drives, and some IDE drives which are diff power connectors. So yes... thats normal.

Air blows out the back. In the front, if you have a front fan, and out the back.
