Need help in identifying the power pins to start the motherboard.

Hi all,

Recently got the ASUS H81M- C motherboard. I dont have the case yet. But I m willing to test the motherboard. The problem is I m bit confused in identifying the power pins in it. Can someone please mark the correct pins, so that I can short the pins with the help of a screwdriver?

    The case connectors are labeled. Look to the manual's diagram. You see HDD LED. Now look to your case's internal connectors DO you see HDD LED? But there are two HDD LED on the motherboard. Not a problem. Look to the back of the connector. See the + and -? Match the case's HDD LED + and - with the motherboard's + and -. Rinse and repeat.
