The motherboard manual will give you a breakdown of the cast-to-motherboard connections for the board. They differ slightly from board to board, but the connections are almost always found at the bottom front corner of the motherboard. There will be connections for the hard drive LED, the power LED, the power switch, the reset switch, and on some, the speaker (optional). The power switch and the reset switch connectors , 2-pin plugs, are not polarized, meaning that they can be connected to their pins either way without issue. The Power and HDD LED plugs are polarized, as LEDs have a positive and negative. Get this plug backward and the LED won't work. These are also 2-pin plugs. The power LED usually has a green and white wire (Green is +) and the HDD is usually red and white (Red is +) . Some motherboards have color-coded pins -- DO NOT TRUST THEM IF YOU DON'T HAVE A MANUAL -- they are not always standardized. Some motherboards have small print on the board adjacent to the pins to identify them. You CAN trust these. Otherwise, go to the Motherboard manufacturers site and get the manual for the board. The model number is on the board and can be searched for. If the manufacturer's name is not obvious, Google the model number and it will usually lead you to the manufacturer.
If it is different then probably it cannot be connected to your motherboard but if it have the same count of pins then it will be ok to put it on. Don't worry if you improperly connect it, it will not burn out, its just won't work.
You should have 4 joined pins and 1 black ground for each usb port.
The red wire is for Pin1
White wire is for Pin2
Green is for Pin3
Then you have the Ground wire (black)
The pins on the motherboard are all numbered.
The only front panel pins you need are for the power switch. Track them from the front panel to the connector and plug them upto the 2 pins for power. Dont worry about polarity it can go either way. The connector may look a little odd but it will work just fine. In the past in that situation I have cut the plastic in such a way I have separated the different connections but its not worth the trouble in my opinion.
Hi ford, the most common case colored wires used for negative - is white. The colors blue, red, green are usually positive +. The internal speaker though it uses a 4 pin connector only plugs onto the 2 end pins. Black is connected to negative - pin & red is connected to + positive pin. (Depending on the MB model).
All these case LED's use 5volts DC. If you make a boo-boo, don't freak out. You can usually shut down the system & turn the connector 180 & re-connect it with out hurting the board. Suggest you connect 1 at a time & check in-between each.
Still having trouble, include the name & model number of the MB.
hi im wesley. ok the power and audio connecters is very simple if you look at the bottom right of the motherboard you will see you can plud them and it says the name of witch is the power and witch is audio and it doesnt realy make a difference witch way you put them in just as long as they are on the right pins. the usb might be a little more tricky unless it says witch connecter is the usb 1&2 then its the same as the power led but if you dont come right i will try to get a diagram for you or draw one up but it might not be as accurate tho as i do not own a asus motherboard but i will do my best.
Answer me this. You're case is an Antec tower? The motherboard is the Asus P4P800 SE ? Is this correct?
If you have you're manual you can see what goes where on the board for front panel connector page. 2-31. (This diagram shows you how to connect the front mic & speaker).
To connect the Antec's front USB ports plug the case USB front connectors onto USB56 & USB78 shown on page. 2-30. Most case wires are already set within their USB connectors & the Antec's front USB connector should fit right on the mother board's pin's. If you need you're user manual, download from Asus by clicking on this link. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4P800%20SE&SLanguage=en-us
Hi, one quick thing you can check is to see if the cable running from the power switch is plugged onto the right pins on the motherboard, it will most likerly say (pwr btn) next to the pins or something like that, it may also need to be a certain way round.Let me know what the outcome is if no good we can try something else. hope this has helped. Thanks
