Windows 10: F Panel Connections, + or -

    F Panel Connections, + or -


    Just installing a new M/B, but just a question about the case power cables etc.

    If the connectors were fitted the wrong way round, does this harm with the board or is it a case of swapping them around?

    Aren't the connectors keyed?
    I doubt you could insert them the wrong way around using normal force
    If you did I would be surprised if it didn't harm the MOBO

    In the case of power sw and reset sw - doesn't matter.

    For LED's - only works in one direction - it's a diode, if connected incorrectly the LED won't light, that about it.

    Do you have your case manual?

    no, no manual, it's an oldish ATX case from Mesh computers (UK)

    I'm confident on PC builds but this is always the bit i have to think twice at haha

    It's my experience in building/repairing computers that + is any other color but - is either white or black. It's also important to have that little brochure that comes with an empty case. The case-makers try to accommodate any brand of motherboard but not always possible to put the wires in a single plastic housing. Sometimes it's possible to follow the wires to the front panel to see what they attach to, those 2 individual wires suggest maybe a speaker attached to the case for signals from the motherboard [not audio] used on older cases but I've not seen on the newest cases I've used.

    Do you have the manual for the motherboard? It should have a diagram showing what the pins are for. Or maybe download the manual for that model from the maker's site?
