Locate the case connector pins on your motherboard. This will be a bank of two rows with 10-12 pins in each row. Each pin will be about 1 cm in length.
Locate the power lead behind the power button on your computer case. The lead will consist of two thin wires, usually white and black, held together by a small plastic cap.
Examine the underside of the power lead for an arrow or dot. If one is present, the marking signifies the first pin. This must correspond with the first pin on the motherboard, which will also be indicated by an arrow, dot, or number. If no markings are present, the lead can be installed in either orientation.
Place the lead over the power pins within the pin bank. The correct pins will be indicated by a diagram on the motherboard, or by a picture in your motherboard's instruction manual.
Connect the power cable to the back of your computer, and turn the computer on.
Most boards now have a standardised pin out for the front panel connections although some have the names of the connections printed on the boards near the pins but you will need a magnifying glass to read them. Try this site for what and where to put it..
