Where do the front wires go?

I'm nearly finished building but I don't know where these wires go. I can point to where I think they would

go on the Mobo certainly and I know I need to consult the Manual but I don't know what I'm looking for in the

Manual.

The H.D.D Led wire is red and white
The Power SW wire is black and white
The Power Led wire is blue and white

The Motherboard I'm using is an M5A78L-M LX V2


The case I'm using is from an Emachines E4026 from 2005 if that helps.

More about where front wires
  1. look at the manual, it will tell you, look for on board connections, you'll see the power sw etc. referenced.
  2. 13th monkey is right. It's in your mbod manual.
  3. white is the negative or - wire.
    The other color is the positive.
    I find that confuses people very often when installing that wiring.
  4. Page 1-24 of the manual, labeled System Panel Connector in the manual. On the motherboard it will be labeled F_Panel.
  5. ignore the colours


    look at the connecters themselfs


    they are shaped to go one way


    if you look at the manual it shows you which to use as well as a layout diagram off boad


    for example molex power conecters power fans and some accesories


    these are 4 pins usually on a white connecter but not always the case

    the front panel connectors are not one way only, all other ones are.
  8. quick check in the manual and i found the part where the 3 wires should connect to.

    the pins are like


    . . . .
    . . . .
    . . . . .

    pled pwrbtn
    +hdled reset


    so if connected the wires it should look like this

    0 - 0 0 - 0
    0 - 0 . .
    . . . . .

    ?


    0-0 = a wire
  9. thats it, its the crappest part of a build tbh
  10. From top to bottom without a Speaker it would look like this

    ....
    0-00-0.
    0-00-0x

    x=no pin

    Yep, though Asus' Qconnect makes it a lot less painful.
