Can someone help me with my new case?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i purchased a new case today, was needing a new one due to heat issues from lack of ventilation with the old case.

The case i purchased was the NZXT Vulcan. So far, I have mounted the motherboard, slotted in both the DVD drive and the HDD, and the power supply has also been placed.

However, FOR THE LIFE OF ME, i cannot figure out where some of these wires go. There are 3 very small connectors, one's labeled HDD LED, another's labeled POWER SW, and the other is labeled RESET SW.

I figured the POWER SW and the RESET SW would plug somewhere into the motherboard, but i cannot figure out where. It's driving me crazy, because i get the feeling that it is right under my nose.

If possible, could someone post a pic of where these are supposed to plug into the mobo? This is my first time switching cases, so i'm sorry if this is a really obvious question.

On motherboards it's usually on the bottom right. They are also color/name labeled. If we knew the exact model number of your motherboard we could provide pictures.

Again, It would help ENORMOUSLY if someone could post a pic of them, that way i know what i'm looking for.

I can see 2 3 pin adapters in the lower right of the mobo, but the connectors are only 2 pin...

You should have something like this And should be able to connect is in the right bottom corner of your motherboard.
