Leds of a computer's box

I want to buy a new cpu box, (my motherboard is an ATX), and i have the KCAS 500W of AEROCOOL power supply, and I want to know if I can connect the leds of the box to that PSU before buying it. I also want to know what type of cable does it use.

  1. The AEROCOOL KCAS 500w has;

    1 - 20+4pin
    1 - 12volt 4+4pin
    2 - PCIe 6+2pin
    7 - Sata Connectors
    4 - Molex Connectors
    1 - FDD (Floppy Dive)

    Any LED's, fans or front panel cables from your case will plug into the motherboard, not directly into the power supply.

  3. The name of your motherboard will be written on it, right in the middle of the board.

    I am having a bit of trouble understanding your English. I think you are saying you have an ATX motherboard and an AeroCool KCAS 500watt power supply, and you want to buy a new computer case that your parts will fit into. Is that correct?

    Your 2nd question - "But con what conector?"- I am not clear what you are asking. Could you re-word that question again for me.

  4. First of all, I'm spanish. I have a good level of English, but I'm on my smartphone, and the auto-corrector is changing al the words! What you say is correct, I want a new computer case. I know that the motherboard name is on it, but I'm not at home. That's why I say that I can't tell the model now.
    Do you understand now?

  5. And the 2nd question was that, where do I have to connect the led's cables on the motherboard? Because I don't know if my motherboard has that conectors.

    That depends on the motherboard. All motherboards have some fan headers, but the number varies from one board to the next. Newer motherboards also have RGB headers, but again, the number varies from one board to the next. Generally the more expensive the motherboard is, the more headers it will have.

    I have never looked myself, but i am sure you could if you needed to, buy an add-on card with extra fan and RGB headers, to put in one of the PCIe expansion slots on your motherboard. That's why the extra PCIe slots are there.

    Your motherboard has;

    1 - 4-pin CPU fan header (CPU_FAN)
    1 - 4-pin system fan header (SYS_FAN1)
    1 - 3-pin system fan header (SYS_FAN2)
    1 - 3-pin power fan header (PWR_FAN)

    The 4-pin CPU fan header is only for your CPU. The 2 system fan headers and the 1 power fan header can all be used for case fans. You have no RGB fan headers on this motherboard, that's a more modern motherboard feature.
