Default 3pin to 2 pin power led?

my case (lian li p50) has a 3 pin power led, where as the motherboard only has a 2pin, any way to hook er up?

very simple, you use a small tool to unlock one of the wire from the connector and you place it in the middle of the connector , just live the hole on the connector pending outside , just make sure to have the god polarity, color wire is positive and black one negative

ok the other way

cut the connector in half , in the middle, you will have 1 connector for each wire left , just plug them one by one in the motherboard socket. you just turn them 90 degree so the remain of the cutting is not touching

actually I just understood your first message. There is only two wires coming out of the 3 pin plug, one of the 3 plugs on the conenctor is a dummy one. I will try to pop it out and put it in the other one.
