Help with new PC assembly sought, please.

I've got all the bits and have started to put my new PC together. I've built several PCs before, but the last time was about 6 or 7 years ago so I'm a bit out of practice...

I've a few issues about;
Mobo mounting
CPU fan mounting
Audio and Fan connectors
Ferrite ring usage.

I've made a little website to explain my issues;

I'd really appreciate it if those able could have a look there, at the pics and questions, and report back here with any pertinent answers. I think/hope that's the easiest thing to do!

Many thanks in anticipation. And with apologies, I've just been called, so I wont be able to check in for answers for a while!

The mobo is a Gigabyte GA H55 UD3M
Case is Coolermaster 330 elite

Many thanks,

I know what you mean MAJ, but there aren't mounting points there!

And just in case it makes a difference to anything, (I'm sure it doesn't!), I got the motherboard model wrong...

it a GA H55 UD3H (not UD3M)

I know for the future now!

As it's pretty much assembled now I'll fabricate something to give temp support while installing the RAM. I don't, now, really want to be taking all the connectors off just for one support.

But many thanks!
