    I'm putting a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H ATX LGA1155 mb into a NZXT Phantom White ATX full-tower case. Been a while since I've done this and this was never really my thing, so forgive my ignorance.

    I have two wires/connectors on the case that I'm not sure what they're for:

    A male molex connector. Could this be for the fans? The case comes with four fans with external controls that are on top. The fans are all connected via three-prong connectors to wires that are labled for each fan control. I don't see any other wires to connect them individually to the mb.

    A SATA connector. Perhaps for the case esata port?

    Thanks!

    the sata cable = esata
    the molex = any lights of any kind in the case?

    From looking at the specs for that case, it has a fan controller. The molex connector plugs into a molex from the pw supply. This is what provides pw for your fans. The fans most likely have 3pin fan connectors that connect to the fan controller.

    Using my new build now. Went very smooth. This system is awesome. These SSD's are amazing. With a Core i5 quad-core and only 4 gb ram (might up that to 8 gb later) and Win 8 64-bit this thing is blazing. Boots in 25 seconds, programs open and run lickety-split, and my web pages are loading instantaneously, as if I'd doubled my bandwidth.

    Very, very pleased.

    Glad it is working well for you. A ssd drive is the single biggest boost to performance you can do for a system.
