just turn your manual to the left so the missing pin on the manual matches up with the missing pin on the board. Then just look in the manual for what should go to what spot and find that wire that you have and plug it in. It should be that easy.
THe white is the negative ...corelate that with the discription on the connector by name.
HDD = hard drive
FP PWR = the "P" connector
Power SW = Power switch
Reset = Reset
Just make sure the white or negative is on the correct pin and the color wire of the same is on the positive
The HDD pins and the power switch pins are flipped...hmmm...it shouldn't hurt to try it both ways. It just won't turn on if you put them in the wrong places, cause that's what happened with my case/mobo connectors.
Could I short out my motherboard if I connect them wrong. The colors don't match up.
The HDD led of the board is yellow but the wire is red
The FP power of the board is green and the wire is green also
The reset of the board is blue and the wire is also blue.
The power sw of the board is red but the wire is orange.
This is the second mobo I had. I had to RMA the last one. I don't like playing games with manufacturers who can't take the time to make sure their manuals are correct....or case manufacturers. I REFUSE to connect this computer at all until I am CERTAIN that it is correct.
sont go by the colors....go by what is labeled on the connectors them selves, turn the manual so it looks just like the pins and hook it up accordingly, just make sure the polarity is corred 9the color wire is positive,and the white wire is negative) hope this helps.... its easy enough and u should have no problem
If you hook up the power and reset reversed that doesen't matter it will work, they just go to a momentary switch to short the two pins. The lights do matter because they are LEDs and diodes are directional they wont burn out though, they just won't work.
