Thermaltake Armor PWR LED Header

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Any of you who have the Armor know what I'm talking about, it has a 3 pin LED header and my mobo has a 2 pin connector for it, where the hell should I plug it into on the mobo? I tried on some other 3 pin on the mobo, and surprisingly the LED light up but it stays light up even though the PC is off, and even when the PSU is disconnected from power, it's still on. Is it supposed to be like that or is that just because I have it plugged there? Where can I plug it in?

I would just rewire the connector, It should say something about it in your motherboard manual.

I had the same problem you did. All you have to do is swap the pin from the 3rd slot into the middle slot so that the two wires are next to each other. Its fairly easy. If you look at the 3pin header itself theres a tab on 1 side u gotta lift then push/pull the wire out. As for your LED light stayin lit up. just means u got the wires on backwards. Flip it around and it works.... As to where to place it on the mobo. it goes to the top right 2 pins where u connect ur reset sw, hdd led, and other colorful stuff.

It's easy...

Just use a something small like a needle to lift the little plastic tabs on the plastic section of the connector and slide one of the pins out, and move it over 1 hole on the connector so that it will fit the 2 pins of the mobo header.

Job done.

And ffs, don't stick a connector onto random pins. Thats just plain retarded. You don't know *** you might have damaged, be lucky you didn't damage anything.

EDIT:
beaten to it..

Wrong... It means its on the wrong pins. LED = Light Emitting DIODE. Electrical current can only flow one way through a diode.
