Default Help with wiring - again newbie

I've got most of my parts and have installed them in the case. The hardwear was easy to install but I have no idea how to wire up all the components and case. I'm reading the mobo instructions but am seriously lost! Please help!

First off what motherboard do you have?

Second as for cable management zip-ties are your friend.

I have the asus P5Q Pro.

The wire management is something I am okay with. It is figuring out what goes where on the mother board...

If you are trying to figure out the front connectors, the board should have come quit the Q Connectors also called Quick Connectors.

Even if you didn't have the Q-Connector, you could just refer to your manual, the pins are clearly marked.

Oh and that Intel stock fan needs to go
