My System Specs

It's actually fairly hard to mess up a PSU installation in terms of what wires go where, since the connector types are quite distinct. With this PSU not being modular, you don't have to worry about plugging in the wrong thing, really. You'd pretty much have to break a connector to get it into an incompatible slot, and other than maybe the eight-pin EPS connector for the motherboard and the eight-pin PCI-e connector for the graphics card the power cable types are completely different.

Computer power connectors clip in firmly, but don't require a lot of force to insert. Don't force a connection, and you'll be okay.

For more information, you might find this primer on power connector types helpful. All about the various PC power supply cables and connectors
