I'm replacing my old MSI mainboard, with a biostar TA790XE. I ran into a snag, the board has 2 positive power led, however the case only has one. The case is a Rosewill 5600 series. I'm not sure what to do now

I build this system about 3 years ago, and had no issues then.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I should correct myself, It's not "required" the manual (and the mobo) shows 2 Power LED (+) and one (-).

So a follow up question here, if I were to use only 1 of the (+) and leave the other one alone, would that be ok? And if so which one should I use

The manual for the case itself ( it's a rosewill 5600 series) uses this diagram for the Power LED/PLED:

PLED+ PLED-
■ □ ■

The motherboard looks like this

PWR_LED

+ + -
□ □ □



So I ask again, should Ignore one of the anodes (+)? Or do I need some sort of converter?
