Usually, the white wire is the negative (-) lead, so I would put it on so that the white wire is on PW - and the green (at least on my case) is on +.

If that doesn't work, just flip em around.

Damn newbies falling victim to that garbage board. Anyway pw led is for the power light on the front of the case, normally red is positive and black is negative, other color schemes usually include either a red or a black wire.

As for the power switch, it's normally maked pw-sw, but M/B sw is probably how yours is marked. It doesn't matter which way you hook that connector, the switch simply conects the two pins to each other.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?
