    Default Need some Little Devil experts please!

    I have finished my Little Devil build but got some problems with the supplementary Power Buttons.

    The two Power buttons are both for Power and Reset.

    Both Buttons have 4 cables each.

    2 yellow cables (+Power/-Power) for the switch and 1 Red and 1 Black Cable for the LEDs of the button.

    The Red cable isfor the (Power) of the LED and the Black cable for (Ground).

    Now my problem is that the LED power cable requires Minimum 5 Volt, but my motherboard headers all only have Max 2 Volt.

    Is there any other way to fix this problem, or to power them at another source than the motherboard header?

    What exactly do you mean?

    I got SATA & Molex cables with my PSU, but they are holed, meaning they are receivers.

    But the cables of the buttons need pins.

    Ok I just figured out that by plugging them on 4Pin Molex the LEDs of the buttons light up, but only after PC has been booted and the PSU supplies that Molex with power.

    I need the Buttons to light up constantly though, regardless of the Mobo to be booted or not.

    And the only way to get power without having the Mobo to boot is through the header panels which only output 2Volt max, I am in a clamp right now^^

    Why do you need the LEDs on, when the system is off?

    To keep them on at all times, you have to have your power supply on at all times. The easiest method for that is a second, hotwired, dedicated PSU. Your post is a bit confusing.

    The only way for devices to receive power without having the PSU on is through the Motherboard panels.

    Most boards have a (Audio panel, Power panel (For Power,Reset,LEDs etc & USB Panel)

    Those panels all have pins which have power running through them despite the PSU being off since they receive static power through the 24 Pin which is used for the power switch and some other on call devices that need constant power.

    The only problem is that this static power is limited to 2Volt output some boards like mine the GA X58A-OC have 5V through the USB panels.

    There is no way for me to have the buttons lit up constantly without switching out the LEDs.

    I have just connected them to 3pins and they light up as soon as the PSU is running

    Thx for the replies guys!
