Can anyone tell me what the middle (yellow) LED is for and when it should light up. I've had this case for 2 days and have not seen it light up once. Refer to the link above.
Thanks.

theres usually a HDD LED, a Power LED, and sometimes a proccessor usage LED. the last one generally only lights up if the proc is being used at 100%. if youve got a good setup, you may never see that light come on. especially if you've got hella mounts of RAM.

or maybe you just don't have that lead plugged onto the mobo....

...........hmmmmmmmm. I connected all the leads to their corresponding connections on the motherboard so that doesnt answer my question. The last case i had that had 3 LEDs on the front was a 486 case in which the 3rd LED lit when I hit the recycle button (aka reset switch), but I don't think that's the case cause i've hit the reset switch to test it and it works.
The only other 2 cases I've had with a 3rd LED on the front panel were an old pentium case and a 386 case in which the 3rd LED lit when I hit the turbo button, so I know it isn't this case either cause the turbo don't exist on cases anymore.

So the question still remains for someone who actually has this case that is pictured in the above link or for someone who 100% knows for sure what this LED is for....can u help me so I can verify it's function as working or not.................


....thanks to all that reply, and attempt to help, no matter how meager it maybe...............LIVE LONG AND PROSPER

sorry wrong. i have all my plugs in the right way and the red LED is for HDD activity and the green LED is for power status, but what is the yellow LED in the middle really for?

My red and green LEDs are working and verified as they light up when they are supposed to........


..........so does anyone else wanna try?



Thanks in advance.

I have the same case so I'll tell you my configuration:

Yellow- Power LED (2 pins next to each other unlike the green which are seperated)

Red - HDD LED

Green - Nothing (Look at Yellow)

I have all three hooked up.

Green - Power
Red - HDD
Yellow - SMI Message LED

No, I have no idea what the SMI message LED actually is because I don't care enough to look it up, but on the front panel header/pin area for my Asus mobo there was a space for it so I put it in.

According to Intel Specs wrote:
Closing the sleep/resume switch sends a System Management Interrupt (SMI) to the processor, which immediately goes into SMM. While the computer is in sleep mode, it is fully capable of responding to and servicing external interrupts (such as an incoming fax) even though the monitor turns on only if a keyboard or mouse interrupt occurs. To reactivate or resume system operation, the sleep/resume switch must be pressed again, or the keyboard or mouse must be used.


So I put my system into sleep mode and the green and yellow LEDs blink in an alternating fashion.

So my config is:

Red = HDD Activity
Yellow = Sleep Mode (SMI) blinks alternately with green
Green = Power

Thanks willah for the correct answer. You get a gold star for your forehead :wink: :lol:
