I've only done a couple of builds so I'm not too confident and was hoping someone could answer some pretty specific questions for me.

1) My master cooler case same with a buzzer (speaker) for the motherboard, the only connector i can see with the same configuration is JFP2 but it makes no mention of a MB speaker, would this be the right connector or does the board have a built in speaker?.

2)Do both power connectors need to be plugged into the board? the 24 pin and the smaller 4 pin (onto the JPWR2 connector)

I know these are really specific but I'd appreciate any feedback, thanks.

Get a better board. That is the equivalent of a frisbee and I doubt its durable.

1) The speaker (or buzzer/noisemaker) should have been included with the case, in the small parts packet.
JFP2 seems to be the correct location to plug it in.

2) Yes: both required.

It's a budget system for my dad, he only uses email and photoshop so I'm keeping price below £400.

Using the same board when I build a system for my mother in law this weekend. She only wants it play freecell! Not even going to be on the internet...
