I am about to connect the front panel wires. The plugs on the wires have a KSP on one wire but nothing on the other.
The wire marked with ksp is usually the ground " the - " try it that way if the led lights do not work switch the connections. No harm will come either way If you plug them in the wrong way the lights simply will not turn on. The voltage is so low that it is one connection that can do no harm. The wire marked with KSP also has a raised triangle near the female port. Someone told me the triangle indicates positive! Black may be often negative but some of the sets do not have a black wire.
Which particular connections are you talking about? If you look at where the wires lead to on the fp, which ones. Some need no polarity. The important thing is you plug them into the correct pins. Like mentioned above if your polarity is incorrect and say your hdd light doesn't come on then switch the two 2 connectors and the hdd light will come on. Follow your mobo pin layout instructions from the manual. Please see my posting at the beginning of this topic as you have managed to ignore the correct answer so far.
Dear Rick P. I have not been ignoring your answer. I am asking a generic question not a specific question. I work with a lot of different cases and motherboards. I have always done the trial and error method and it does work. However I think that the marking on the front panel wires must somehow indicate which is positive and which is negative so that you can get it correct the first try.
The colors can be different from one case manufacture to another so color is not the way to go. The wire marked with KSP also has a raised triangle near the female port so I was thinking that this must mean something.
Others may have done the same so please don't be critical of our attempts as we all have tried to help. If we had known the [ brand name ] of the Motherboard and Front Panel, then maybe things would have turned out differently; reference my posting at the very top of this topic thread. Rick P. Please don't think I am being critical of anyone who responded. I value the feedback I get from this forum. I was just trying to come up with a general but consistent method to determine the positive and negative connections on front panel wires that will work for any brand of case.
As I said before, giving you the specific brand of motherboard and case that I was working on this time would not have provided the solution I was seeking.Menu Menu.

How does the NZXT H500 (Break Out Cable) connect to the F.Panel Cable?
I'm actually wondering how the break out cable connects to the f. The side that separates is the side that connects to the motherboard while the other end connects to the Front Panel Cable. I don't remember where the arrows were located. I do remember that you can only connect it in one orientation. There was no risk in connecting them backwards. Also, you can see from the image that the wires must align. I see now, I think I got it. Thanks a lot for taking the time to reply.

Question How can I install this older driver without breaking Windows? Question Custom Cables?The box also contains an owners manual. Thanks to the recent popularity of relocating hard drive racks to the area under the power supply tunnel, cases like the Hi have an abundance of space in the main compartment for water cooling components.
In fact, even though this chassis is equipped with a trio of mm intake fans, a mm exhaust fan, and a large cable management bar, there is more than enough room for a custom cooling loop, reservoir, and a multi-GPU set-up with room to spare. While we are on the subject of space, it's worth mentioning that it's becoming increasingly common among case manufacturers to list support for E-ATX motherboards up to You can imagine how unhappy you'd be if you bought this case under the assumption it supported a full-sized E-ATX motherboard.
In lieu of traditional cable pass-through holes in the motherboard tray, NZXT has opted for a 8. To keep things neat and tidy, you get a large cable management bar that, along with the PSU cover, help hide unsightly wires and cable clutter. The cable management bar is painted to match to the Hi's accent color. There is a 10" x. A large hole in the motherboard mounting plate facilitates heatsink changes without removing the motherboard.
Space behind the motherboard, although well designed, is extremely limited. NZXT has included a number of plastic routing blocks for cable management and plenty of tie down points, but even so, space is at a premium and requires careful planning.
There are mounting locations for a total of three 3. Of the five dedicated mounting locations for 2. The 2. Although both 3. Additionally, you can move the 3. Cooling duties are handled by three mm front intake fans and a large mm exhaust fan behind the CPU socket area. The sheer number of fans installed in this chassis from the factory should provide more than enough airflow for even the most demanding system configurations.
Although some larger PSUs may require relocating the hard drive racks, the Hi can accommodate power supplies up to mm in length without moving the hard drive racks.
You can use CPU air coolers up to mm tall and the case can accommodate multiple graphics cards up to mm in length. Radiators and all-in-one coolers can be mounted in the top, front, and rear of this chassis.
The mounting locations in the front of the chassis support radiators and liquid coolers up to mm. There is a total of 39mm clearance for radiators and coolers in the space above the motherboard and an additional 39mm for fans to be mounted in the area above the frame and below the top panel.
As with all cases of this size, most all-in-one coolers can be physically mounted in the front of this chassis, but because of the fixed length of the tubing, some coolers might not be able to reach the CPU socket. However, these locations are ideal for mounting radiators for water-cooled graphics cards.
Radiators and all-in-one liquid coolers up to mm can be mounted inside the main compartment of the chassis. The front of the chassis can easily support radiators sandwiched between fans in a push-pull configuration. The exhaust fan mounting location can be fitted with and mm coolers in single and dual fan configurations.
Lighting effects such as breathing, fading, pulse, alternating, and wings can all be selected from the CAM software user interface.
RGB lighting and fan speed can also be controlled via the software provided by your motherboard vendor. Current page: Hardware Installation and Test Configuration. Home Reviews. Image 1 of 4.

The System panel cables, as shown in the picture are two wire cables that are color-coded to help identify where they connect to the motherboard system panel connector.
The black or white wire is the GND ground wire and the colored wire is the powered wire. The cables, colors, and connections vary depending on the computer case and motherboard you have, however, generally include the cables mentioned below. With most computer motherboards, the system panel cables are connected directly to the motherboard. With a Q-Connector, the user can connect the system panel cables away from the motherboard and then connect the Q-Connector to the motherboard.
The system panel cables are not keyed so can be plugged in any direction. Except for the LED cables, the system panel connector cables can be plugged in any direction.
In the diagram example above, copied from a motherboard manual, you can see how each of these cables connects to the motherboard.

See attached photo from the manual Can someone please help me with which two I connect the case wires to? Miniatura de Adjuntos. They would go to pins 1 and 2, did a Q connector come with your motherboard?MSI® HOW-TO install front panel connectors (JFP1)
If one did use that it will look similar to this white one. Last edited by Nate; at PM. Thanks for the reply - I'll connect them to the pins at top left in the picture. No Q-connector came with the motherboard - should I try and source one, or it makes no difference? Check the manual for all contents. Most higher end boards would have a Q-connector. Intel i7 K 5. If your motherboard didn't come with a Q connector it's not a big deal and is not a necessity, it just makes connecting those connections easier is all.
Definitely no Q-connector, obviously not high-end enough as far as Asus are concerned. See page from manual below Pretty confident I've got the connectors on the right pins thanks to the help on here so all good. The Q connector isn't a big deal as I said it just makes those connections easier.
Let us know when you get it fired up and running how it's working for you. Thanks, will do. Building it for my son, so he will tell me if it's any good or not. I just hope it fires up when I press the power button! Last edited by BigBad64; at AM.
