Hello,
Probably a stupid question but i'm currently in the process of buiding a new pc sys.
i have the Motherboard fitted to a Xclio midi case and i'm stuck connecting the front panel headers to the M/board ( power/ HDD LED/ speakers ect) the manual states which side is + and - on the connector but the cable doesn't. there is no mention in the manual for the case either.

Any help much appriciated.

If all else fails, go to trial and error, you can't blow the m/b up (at least I never have despite having built hundreds of cheap systems where nothing is tagged :whistling: )

I heard about some old Socket A motherboards where if you connected the USB header the wrong way around it would blow the board out lol. Could be a myth but it makes for a good story.

I generally work by trial and error as well though. I am not 100% sure, but I think the side with the text on generally points to the bottom of the motherboard. Also I believe the headers have an arrow imprint (on the opposite side to the text) above pin1 - although this is rather small so most people don't notice it/can't see it hehe.
