    Hey, Im recently installed a motherboard and in the process of connecting it to the main wires from the computer case itself. unfortunitly ive come to stump with one of the wires so im looking to see if i can find some sort of examples or perhaps a manuel of my case online.

    Problem is i havent a clue what make or model of case it actually, was given to me as a present and it doesent have very many distinctive marks. On the fron there is a large logo stating eBox however after a few internet searches i found nothing.

    Has anyone ever came across this make before and is there anywhere i can get support?

    Thanks

    Are there any markings on the actually front case wires? If there are then that's all you really need. The motherboard manual generally has diagrams where these wires connect too.

    Yea i have most of the wires connected via the manuel. however there is just 1 wire remaining :eek:

    It comes out of the bottom left hand corner of the case.a blue and white twisty wire which comes onto another wire. it looks like a male and female connecter for power i think. red, black, black and yellow wires connect the two male and female connectors.

    truth be told i havent a clue where this goes, perhaps one to the power supply? and im dead sure i seen one connected to a hard drive last time but im not sure.

    Anyone with any info on this?

    Where does it go in the front of the case? A light bar or a switch, a fan? If you can take some pictures.

    I think its from the design lights on the front of the case. i have it connected at one end from the hard drive and the other from the power supply so its a direct supply for both.

    How did you connect it to the hard drive? Nothing beyond data and power should connect to the hard drive. If its just the large 4 pin molex power connector then thats OK.

    Yup its a connector, at one end the wire from the Power supply comes in and splits it into one for the wire to the front and one for the hard drive.

    Ok, so thats not specific to the hard drive, it will work wirht any 4 pin molex connector - it's probably gonna be a light or possible a fan.
