Ok If the positive or negative thing is in the wrong place will my motherboard fry ...
on my wires it doesnt say whether postive or negative but on one side it shows an arrow so i used that as positive.

the color wire is the positive, the - will be the black or the white. like the hd is usally red and black, so the red is the +, no you will not burn the board if you reverse the wire of the led.

give us the color if you not sure.

shut donw the computer when you plug it, sometime, the surge create by the hot plug in of a led will burn it.

your board have 9 cpu and 7 PCIe, ? I know it's not waht you means, but I'm sure few will be interested by a beast like that

hen555 December 19, 2009 06:50 PM

lmao I meant like
on the diagram of the board it shows arrow and for example a number 9.

and then it tells u what each number is
9 - CPU

but we would have to be in the space age for that lol

There is an extra Power LED E with 3 pins
do I need to connect thatÉ

hen555 December 19, 2009 06:57 PM

And yes you were right, the colored is Positive and White is Negative same with the arrow is on the positive for me.
they should have atleast put a + sign.
