What?

I don't fully understand the question.

So you're trying to plug the LED light into the motherboard, and cant find a way to power it with the PSU?

idk..im the noob...in the instruction manual it says connect pwr led connector to mobo...theres 3 connectors that it also tells me to connect...the reset switch, the power switch and the hdd led connector...there is no pwr led connector there are available pins however next to the other 3 connectors...they were each connected to 2 pins...there are 2 available pins but no connector which should be the pwr led i'm guessing...I'm a noob!!!!!

Take the light connector end, and then find something that it will go into. Report back where it leads (the piece that plugs into the light)

I think he is saying he cant find the the led light and wires which plugs into this spot on the motherboard. I don't know this case but if you can't find one it's possible it doesn't have one.

I just checked out the user manual for this case and it says..............

3. There is no Power LED in this case. Three illuminated case fans will turn on
when there is power to the computer.


So don't plug anything into this spot on the mobo just leave it.

i dont have either of my lights on HDD\Power. they just bother me when i work on it, wish i didnt have to have my power. i dont even have my reset switch anymore

hopefully there are plently of things to indicate that your computer is ON, i usually listen\see my fans, etc.
