I looking to put the final touch on my new build and that is finding out how to plug in the front case light on my case. The cord from the case light is a small 2-pin plug(like motherboard plug size) which is to short to reach anything near the motherboard. There is one plug from the PSU that is a 3-pin socket. The email reply from Xion(the case company) says simply plugs into a 4 pin from PSU. And on antecs website that same cord is labeled "fan rpm monitor" or something like that. Please let me know how i can get this plugged in b/c it's bothering me knowing that something is missing :ange: 

Also, the power and reset buttons seem to be switched or is just a terrible design b/c the reset is on outside and power is inside the panel. could i just switch the cords for the reset and power switches on the motherboard with no problems down the road.

If the power and reset buttons have the same pin arrangement you can just switch which is which, they are both momentary push buttons and work exactly the same.

What case, motherboard, and power supply do you have?
