Yeah, I think Elefantito gets the credit on this one.

Default What the F*... no Hard drive activity light????

I can't believe that there is no hard drive activity light on the front panel. I was looking for it and wondering why I didn't see activity. I thought I had somehow mis-pinned the I/O header. So why do they include the HD LED 2 pin connector? An absolute negative for me. I would never have bought the case if I had known it didn't have one. So is this the new design for cases these days?

Wink Had to make my own LED assembly

Sure glad I had bits and pieces laying around in my junk box. Scavenged a 3 pin fan connector and a red LED to make my own hard drive activity LED assembly. Knew the fan connector would have the requisite .1" pin spacing but was unsure if I could get it to fit on the motherboard adapter. Was fortunate that the HD activity pins were on the outside lower row of the adapter so that I could fit the fan connector on it and just have the extra third pin hang off to the outside where it wouldn't interfere with anything. I placed the LED into an open section of the front fan mount slots so I can see the activity through the mesh dust filter on the front of the case.

I am building on the 740 case now. I am making my own HDD led - rough draft in pic. The light switch is a momentary switch and pretty useless. Don't hook it too HDD led. It would only short it "momentarily" while you hold it and serve no other function as there is no "light" as the panel or instructions suggests. I am removing the switch in the pic and putting my HDD led there.
