Read your manuals, your motherboard manual especially for what goes where, and take your time, if you miss something somewhere you probably won't post, and you'll have to go back searching for what went wrong. Better to do it right the first go-round.

There'll be a series of 9 or so pins near the bottom or right side of the mb where the case wires plug into, including the led's and power switch and the like. The writing can be kind of small, there should be a clear layout in the mb manual though.

The power connector that goes into the 8800 gts. It has 6 pins. If that is not connected your vc will not function and the mb will provide that nice friendly warning that it is not receiving adaquate power.

I'm not sure what your referring to. As long as it has power via the 4-pin molex, or the sata power connector, and is connected to your mb via sata port, your hdd is good to go.

What do you mean? You followed the steps for proper thermal paste application? Is that hs one of the twist pin ones, cause those are tricky, gotta make sure if you pull on it nothing comes out. Check your cpu temp in the BIOS.

It should have a little give in rotation, like twisting a few degrees right or left, but if you pull on it (gently of course) it should try to bring the mb w/ it, and no pins should pop out.
