    I'm not sure, but as an aside, cables that fit in place are almost always right.
    Right now, I can only think of one exception: there may be a four pin input slot on the motherboard, you should insert the single 4 pin cable from the powersupply, NOT break apart two eight pins. I'm not even sure if that will fit.

    Now that did make me laugh :) :) :D (and not much does anymore)
    I can't believe I forgot the Power Outlet, or is scientific terms: GPO ;) :grinthumb
    Is that the connector you were unsure of? Hmm?
    Because if so, then that's the problem right there ;)
