You should get a handbook with the new board with diagrams.

As strawballs says, you will get a manual with diagrams etc on cable placement.
That doesn't make it any easier the connections from the front of PC case to the motherboard can be a pain in the lower regions.But help is here if needed,good luck.

The worst I found are the on off switch cables especially if going from a big name make which has a block on the end of the wire rather than individual connectors

Main brands such as HP.Dell.E-machines tend to be custom machines- that is built with main components that are to individual makers specs.
They can be not only difficult but some times impossible to -'Upgrade' beyond - memory or PCI slotted cards.
This type of machine is built for a specific range of applications and are best left as they are.
Essentially there are two ways to go-
Purchase the next main brand- machine or go for a motherboard/CPU/memory bundle from the likes of Novatech., and build up from there.

If careful you can push the connectors out of the block then insulating around them

Do a google search for the motherboard manual, everything you need to know will be there.
