Hello, i bought a MSI B450M DS3H motherboard and i tried connecting the front panel to it but i got stuck. I have a pretty old case and it has ATX SW and POWER LED pins coming from the power button. Could someone explain me how should i connect those 2 so everything is working properly?
Thanks in advance!

I've got PLED/ PW/ HR/ RES/ CI/ SPEAK/ PWR_LED in there.. so i should connect that pin to PW and everything should work, right? Wanted to make sure so i don't ruin anything

Yes, in this instance "PW" will be your power switch - and where you'd connect.

PLED and PWR_LED are for the same thing, and are probably configured as a 2 pin (side by side) and a 3 pin (pin, blank, pin) and you'd connect your power LED to the most appropriate connector (ie is it 2pin or 3pin from the case itself). The LED isn't 'required' though, if you just want functional.
