I was recently given a DQ57TM motherboard and have a question about the front cables. I have HDD Led, Power SW, Power LED +, Power LED -, and reset SW marked on the cables. Where exactly do they go on the motherboard as marking on the board are different. I have never done this before and am a little afraid of screwing it up and ruining the motherboard or processor.
No, no problem at all. You just will not see the LED on. Now, some folks like the flashing LED to indicate disk activity. Also, I replace my Power LED with a blue LED. I like blue.
Whenever I connect the wires, 50% of the time, I have them reversed, so I have to flip them just to get the LEDs to work.
