Hello,
Another question here, "CM storm scout unidentified molexes" asked about Molex connections. I have a question about the case molex connector that contains only two pins, with a twisted black and red wires terminated to each pin. Both pins were pushed back out of the connector shell when trying to attach the power supply half. I didn't notice this until later so I hav no idea which pin slots in the Molex connector these two black/red pins insert. The wires terminate on the panel end at the fan light switch and obviously control the lights on the fans. Everything else now works on the computer except the fan lights. I had no luck with CM tech support in getting a pin-out description. Could anyone suggest in which shell pin slots these two black/red wiring pins should be inserted? Help will be appreciatd.

I finally traced out the wiring and determined that the power and ground wires to the fan lights were reversed in the small fan connector. This caused a direct short to ground which burned the insulation off the fan lights power wires. I switched the wires, re-wired the fans, and now they work O.K.
Thanks

I worked out the problem myself, in spite of lack of support from coolermaster. The case power to the lighted fans had reversed polarity between power and ground.

Thanks,
