    From the pic above

    The top line , 24 pin atx goes to the big 24 pin slot atcthe front of the board below the ram.
    It will only fit one way & will lock down once pushed in.

    The 4 pin EPs CPU cable goes into the 4 pin socket above & to the left of the CPU socket.

    On the vs550 this will be on a cable with another 4 pin plug , these can be slotted together for when a board requires 8 pin power.

    Yours is 4 pin only , only one of those cables will fit & it will only fit in one orientation .
    Unless you are stupidly heavy handed you can't plug the wrong one in or the wrong way around.

  4. Does the hdd require any power from the psu?

  5. You can go to YouTube and look up Carey Holzman on computer builds. He has many videos that help guide you through connecting the PSU to all your components.

    Yes. This is from your PSU manual.

    Step B: Installing the Corsair power supply
    5. Connect the peripheral cables, PCI-Express cables, and SATA cables.
    B. Connect the SATA cables to your SATA SSD or hard drive's power sockets.
