My first build.The three leads coming from the front-panel on mine Cubitek MiniTank situation (ON/OFF, RESET, HDD LED) have two black color wires each. On every of these leads, one of the wires is significant with a little arrow on the connector. What is the convention? walk the arrow indicate floor wire and also the negative? Or the power-wire and also the positive?Thanks

For the power switch and reset switch polarity is irrelevant. They room both only momentary call switches.The HD_LED is the only connector of the three where polarity is critical.If there is a triangle ~ above the connector the is the indicator because that the optimistic lead.

download the whole manual because that the plank from the manufacturers website.It will show the relationships with all the details.
Even if over there is a convention, it doens"t average that the case manufacturers followed it. Friend should examine the hand-operated for the case.For example, black color should constantly be ground/negative. In usual wiring, you have actually red/white = positive, black = ground/negative, green/bare copper = ground. If there is no green, then black color is ground. This is a basic convention that any electrician need to follow. Due to the fact that you have actually two black wires, the case designers to be idiots. Go you examine to see if one of the wires is black v a stripe? If so, the wire would be positive, and also the solid black color wire would be ground. If that isn"t the case, then I"d guess the the black wire v the arrowhead is positive, and also the one without is ground.
The "manual" for the Cubitek Mini Tank is a solitary one-sided oversized item of record in lot of languages, folded like a city map.The section on front i/o harbor installation
consists USB (it says 2.0 but the USB cables to speak 3.0) and HD Audio only. Over there is nothing about the power ON/OFF, RESET, or HD LED wiring. The wires room not multicolored or black and also white, and also I don"t see any stripe, yet there is part minuscule lettering top top the wire that is significant with the triangle on the connector. The contrary wire has actually no print on it.
download the entire manual because that the board from the manufacturers website.It will display the relationships with every the details.
The ASUS manual is reasonably clear. It"s distinguishing which wires room which ~ above the front-panel leads (power, reset, hd_led) that is the problem. I know which pairs of pins top top the m/b go v each the those three leads native the front-panel, just not how to orient the two-pin connector top top the pair of pins.
For the strength switch and reset switch polarity is irrelevant. They are both just momentary contact switches.The HD_LED is the only connector the the 3 where polarity is critical.If there is a triangle top top the connector that is the indicator because that the confident lead.
