    Motherboard LED settings

    Attached the LED and Pwr wires to the mobo, it turns on but the power switch on the case won't turn off. Any suggestions?

    It's easy to inadvertently plug the connectors onto the pins on the motherboard backwards.

    Yes, go back over your front panel header schematics to ensure you have them connected properly.
    As Berton points out, it's very easy to misplace these, especially if your dealing with tiny individual prongs.
    (as opposed to the convienient Asus style of header)

    Yes Clint, I have had that problem..

    With my older ASUS motherboard it had the individual pins which, as you know, are a pain...Once you see where it goes your fingers then block your line of site. I ended up using a needle nose pliers.

    But, my new ASUS board had the header you spoke of and it was a breeze to connect and no problems.

    Thanks all... I "played around" with them and got them to work.
