I'm a novice builder but I have not come across a case like this. Front panel cables: It has pwr sw and hd led, but no pwr led or reset sw.

you do not really need the Power LED or reset Switch what do you need help with?

Ok cool. This case seems to be well made but it's cables are not well marked. I'll move ahead with what I can and hit you up as I go. I appreciate you.

OK now as I move along. cpu pwr 1 and cpu pwr 2 . On the board cpu pwr 1 is an 8 element connector. I do have one of those on this enermax mk ii. cpu pwr 2 has a 4 element connector but there is not a 4 element offering in the enermax mk ii case. Any ideas?

Do not use the PSU that Came with the Case that is asking for Trouble get a aftermarket one as the ones that come with cases are the cheapest Quality units out there and unless its a build your doing with parts out a trash bin do not do it.

buy a decent at least 80+ silver or Gold Rated PSU from a known good manufacturer like Corsair, Seasonic, EVGA, Enermax and so on.

as for the 4 pin what parts are you using exactly to do your build as that determins if its optional or not? >>Posting Guide<<

Depends on the PSU that it came with, if it did. Enermax makes some decent PSUs, but did they even say it came with one? The builer is a novice, they may confuse the PSU a part of the case.

CPU power 1 is probably all you need. But you can hook up one half of the other EPS 8 pin from the PSU if it has two 8 pin EPS, the other 4 pins can just hang off the side of the motherboard connector. Just make sure it says CPU or EPS on those leads, and not PCIe. And of course don't force anything, it should snap on easily. What is the make and model of the PSU?
