[hooking up LED lights] Eck

Recommended Posts

OK not completly a noob. but first time hooking up LED lights.

Only question is, im hooking up a pc for my mom. The LED hook ups got me slightly confused.

There is the pwr/reset/etc.... and then a ground for them.

Curious as to wich is the ground wire and wich isnt. Im guessing that the white wires are the grounds, quick answer and ill be good to go. This is the only thing im feeling iffy about.

I really with motherboard/case manufacturers would get some common ground here. Those connectors are rarely clearly labelled.

The good news is, if you get it hooked up backwards, it won't do anything nastier other than not work, so you don't have to worry about blowing up the computer because the HD led or power switch is plugged in backwards.
