Tips for a great answer:
Time to Perform: 10 to 15 minutes.
Preparation / Warnings:
If you have not already done so, please read the section on general installation and assembly tips. Pay particular attention to the notes about connecting cables.
For reference, you may want to read this section describing the cables and connectors coming from the power supply, and/or this section describing the connections on the motherboard.
Motherboards and system cases vary.
Your motherboard may not have all the items I mention here, and the same holds true for your case.
Furthermore, you may find that your case and motherboard don't match in every situation; for example, some cases have a turbo button and some do not, and some motherboards have a connection for a turbo button and some don't.
Watch out for "off by one" errors when attaching cables to pin headers. In particular, some motherboards combine several pin connectors into a larger block.
The individual connections are the same, the motherboard just physically groups the pins together into a larger matrix. Be careful when working with these as making a mistake is much easier to do. Refer to the manual.
If the system is in a tower case, it is much easier to perform this procedure with the case resting on its side.
LEDs have two wires and are unidirectional, so they will not work if attached backwards.
You need to connect the positive lead from the case to the positive pin on the motherboard, and the same with the negative.
Unfortunately, the case connector almost never has the positive and negative labeled. Fortunately, attaching them backwards will usually not cause any damage; the LED just won't work.
One tip you can use: most cases employ for each LED one colored wire (green, yellow, red, orange, blue) and another wire that is either black or white.
When this is the case, usually the colored wire is positive (signal) and the black or white wire is negative (ground). This isn't always true, but it's better than a random guess in most cases.
hope this helps
