Okay, I have a new PSU and I attempted to take out the old PSU, but as I was unplugging things and didn't know what was what with them, it occurred to me, just what do I have to unplug? Just unplug the things I need to remove it and I can keep in the old wires? Or is that a bad idea and put the new wires in?

Also, I'm gonna have to make sure everything is plugged in, I don't wanna get it all up and going and then find out a fan isn't working.

Some of the things seem hard to unplug. When it comes to things like that, I am probably too gentle. I should worry less when trying to unplug things and plug things in? This stuff is more durable than I give it credit for, eh?

You just need to unplug the power connectors from your old PSU and replace them with the same things from the new PSU. So that'd be:
  1. 24-pin motherboard power connector,
  2. 4- or 8-pin CPU power connector,
  3. 6-pin graphics card power connector,
  4. SATA disk/optical drive power connectors, and
  5. Any 4-pin molex power connectors
There's no need to unplug your SATA data cables, fan cables, or anything else .

So, uh, I got my computer up and going again.

Another question from a guy who is paranoid about computer problems, ha. I think all the fans are running. The one system fan is and the CPU fan is. Should I ever have concern that my other two fans aren't running? I'd check, but it is hard to see them. I know, I only had to plug in a connector for the main system fan, and the other two fans should work regardless, but I felt like asking. Because I hate computer problems.

No problem if the fans' wattage (they use small amount of watts and amperes) are factored into the overall system consumption and should be within the PSU's limits; my PC uses three cooling fans with a 600w PSU.

Are they hiding behind something? . I mean, I'm pretty sure I can see all my fans just by taking the case side panel off...

Anyway, I suppose you could just install something like SpeedFan to get your fan speeds, assuming they're connected directly to the motherboard (i.e. not through a 4-pin molex). Or if you don't want to install SpeedFan just reboot, go into your BIOS, and there'll probably be a "System Health" page where you'll get fan speeds, system temperatures, etc .

Haha, yeah, the part you bolded. I can see into my case and can see two of the fans running, but not the other two. I'll check out speedfan.
