I am upgrading my HTPC as we speak and I can't remember which PLED is which.. and the Antec Case labels them the same.
Here is a snapshot from my phone:
You can see that I have a POWER LED and another split POWER LED with + and -
The back of the two stuck together one also has an arrow on the grey to indicate it's the +
My problem is which do I use for which on my motherboard?
Here is my case: ANTEC 300
Here is my motherboard: Asrock Z77 PRO 3
Here is the two manuals:
Connecting the Ports and LEDs
Note: Please refer to your motherboard manual for specific pin outs or location of front panel
1. Connect the Reset switch (labeled RESET SW) to the motherboard at the RST
connector. Polarity (positive and negative) does not matter for switches.
2. Power Switch (labeled POWER SW) connects to the PWR connector on the
3. Connect the Power LED connector to the Power LED connector on the motherboard.
For LEDs, colored wires are positive (+). White or black wires are negative (–). If the
LED does not light up when the system is powered on, try reversing the connection. For
more info on connecting LEDs to your motherboard, see your motherboard manual.
4. Hard Drive LED (labeled HDD LED) connects to the drive activity header on your
motherboard or RAID card.
That is from the manual for the Antec 300
It's does not exactly spell it out clearly. I have only had this problem with Antec.
Coolermaster and many others label the connectors differently from what I remember.. so it made more sense.
The manual has some good info but I can't figure out which is which
Someone help me out ?????
