As you can see the power cable doesn't allow me to move it much.. the JPW1 socket is 24 pin and JPW2 is a 4 pin.. The actual power supply has a 20 pin and a 4 pin...

Thats actually pretty weird. I've never had a power supply like that.

Its 24 pin if you include the 20 pin and the seperate 4 pin but then that leaves JPW2 empty

This can't be right.

I've looked up the spec of that PSU.

It's got:

24-Pin

4 + 4-Pin

Can I have a clear picture of the pins on that 20 (or 24-Pin) connector.

Sorry im pretty dull today, the 4 pin and the 20 pin has a little catch that i missed, it connects the 4 pin and the 20 pin together :p that laves JPW2 with nothing in it but i doubt its needed now?

JPW2 will still need to be filled with a 4-Pin.

There should be another connector from the power supply with an 8-Pin cut in half (2x 4-Pin)

The motherboard should have came with a few of those red cables.

It'll be the same cable you used for the HDD.

EDIT: Just read a review and it only comes with one, which is surprising.

Ask your Dad to take you down to PC World - they should have SATA cables.

Like a couple of quid.

Shouldn't be more than £2.

Sorry about that, my old motherboard came with 4 so I assumed this would have at least 2.
