Power LED (a three pin, not a 2 pin?)

Hey Guys

I recently replaced an old motherboard to a newer one.

And all the pins fit fine (hdd led, power switch, reset switch).

however the motherboard only can fit 2 pins for the power led. as the one on the case has 3 pins (with 2 visible wires coming from it)

How do you get around this?

Thanks

Just prise up the plastic a bit and pop the leads out of the connector - where you see metal on the sides of the connector, the plastic above is a clip strip which you can hook up. If you don't have a 2 pin connector available you could probably clip the 3 pin down to two. Otherwise, just push the leads straight on to the pins.

you take 2 leads, and extend those to the contacts, using an (old) appropriate connector from an old case front

Have the sockets with the 2 visible wires connect to the power LED pins on the motherboard and leave the third socket hanging?
