HAF-X help with power on button

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I spent the past day and a half moving all of my computer hardware from my old case, an antec 900, to a shiny new HAF-X to fit my triple rad.

So I've gotten everything done, even the plumbing (which seemed hopeless at times) and it turns out that my power button doesn't work.

I have an nvidia 780i sli motherboard and here is a link to a website with a picture and legend that shows the front panel header. http://www.legitreviews.com/article/616/4/

Am I supposed to match up the color of the cables from the HAF-X front panel to their respective color on the header?

The header doesn't have any writing on it that specifically states which cable goes where. I know I didn't fry the motherboard with static because I can still power it up using the power button on the board itself.

Also, which way should the plus end (colored wire) go? Should it be facing left?

My last question is that there are two USB cables coming out of the front panel. They have the typical USB plug like you'd see on a keyboard or mouse. But I have no idea what they are supposed to do let alone where they should be plugged in, can anyone shed some light on this?

I have the HAF 932, and if the front panel cables in the X are the same, which I would assume they are, the white wire is the ground, or negative wire. Does it say on the mobo which pin is positive and which is negative? If not, do you have a manual that does tell you?

unfortunately not, but the way it was wired last time on my antec which worked was that the colored wire pointed to the left.

They are for USB 3.0, meant to be plugged into the back USB 3.0 ports on your motherboard. It was a temporary "fix" for CM before onboard USB 3.0 came out. You can just use the extra set of USB 2.0 cables in their place, since your board doesn't have USB 3.0.

As for the power button just make sure all the headers are plugged into the right places, according to the manual. This happened to me a few times as well and I had to reseat it a couple of times to get it to work.

They are for plugging into your mobos external USB 3/2 ports, via one of the 3 rear gromited holes. basicly an extention. ;D

Also those are if you want to use the front usb cables, you can run them from the back of your motherboard and out from the water cooling holes and plug them in the rear motherboard ports and you will have active usb's. When you got your case, you received extra usb 2.0 cables, those cables are if you don't want the usb 3.0 blue cables.
