need help re-connecting case power switch

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i have a gigabyte 3d mercury case. the other night i completely stripped out the built-in gigabyte liquid cooling system because im putting a custom WC loop in it. obviously during that process i had to disconnect all the front panel cables... since i have no power switch im turning the computer on by shorting the switch pins on the mobo with a screwdriver... classy huh? anyway the switch was connected to a small seperate pcb that controlled the pump, wc alarms etc, so i seperated the wires coming from the mobo from the adapter thing that they were attached to. heres what im left with.

1st image: internal connection to front panel power switch.
2nd image: external front panel switch etc
3rd image: mobo adapter showing power switch pins and wire with bare ends.
4th image: plug that the wires from the mobo were originally attached to (circled)
5th image: (what I think is the) wires still attatched to case power switch

notice that the wires still plugged into the mobo adapter thing are orange and brown (pic 3) and the wires from the switch are orange and white (pic 5). is getting the switch to work as simple as connecting orange to orange and brown to white? if so what would be the best way to compete the connection permanently?

oh yea the 3 pin male connector circled in pic 4 was originally plugged in to the female 3 pin connector in pic 5.

sorry for the long post... this is probably a simple fix. thanks!




At long last...

You just need to rig those up to a momentary switch. You want to just touch them briefly.
