I heard i don't need all of them so how do i know what cables to plug in?

Best way to know is to watch a build video, read your manuals, etc.

 

Unless you need someone to tell you every single cable?

 

You may also need to know how to connect the motherboard to the case, fans to the motherboard, etc.

Which cables in particular are you talking about? Power cables for the motherboard, the GPU or what?

 

In general you need to provide power to all of the GPUs 6/8 pin connectors.

 

Your motherboard may be fine with ATX and a single 8 pin, but if it can take an additional 4 pin and the PSU has it, there's no disadvantage to plugging it in.

Remember to either quote or @mention others, so they are notified of your reply

Honestly just start building it. You don't need to plug them in first. There are times it's easier not to plug them in just from a wire management standpoint. Also inevitably you'll miss something anyways, or need an extra cable anyways because two things are further apart or something.

You mean from power supply or complete? I'll try to make it easier but idk how you gonna connect those nzxt fans without hub.
So here is the list (It might not be a full list since I haven't had a chance to see all components in person.
List:
24 pin connector goes from psu to motherboard

8+4 pin connector for cpu goes from psu to motherboard in the top left corner
Then you have new connector for your gpu (don't know the name) that goes from psu to gpu
As for fans i'm not sure how you'll connect them if you don't have hub. You can connect pwm side of it to different 4pin fan headers on motherboard (if you have enough for all fans), but when it comes to argb stuff, I think they use propriatery connectors...
You can also connect 6pin pcie from power supply to motherboard just under 24 pin port to get more power for pcie slots.
aio pump should be connected to the 4pin AIO Pump header.
As for wiring case usb's, you'll have to figure it out since I can only see type c header which is underneath 6pin pcie header. I assume other usb headers should be beneath usb c one but i'm not sure. 
And lastly power and reset buttons are wired on front panel header bottom right on motherboard (it's written on it what goes where).

I'll say again, I'm not sure how you are going to wire rgb stuff. Someone else might help you with that. 
I think I didn't miss anything crucial so if you plug all above mentioned correctly you will get a post (assuming you inserted all components properly).

yeah i think this is the best advice i wanted to use it as a ground so i figured i would do the power supply first, il just plug it in and do the other cables as i go. thanks a ton

i plan on using a fan/rgb controller it holds 6 rgb and 3 fans plus i have some splitters for the rest of the fans thanks for explaining that really strait forward, this is extremely helpful
