Both motherboards have a 24 pin power connection, does your power supply have a 24 pin connector

Are you talking about the connection for the HDD led power switch etc. I have had to change those around, and even completely redo them with new separate plastic connector sleeves for lack of a better term, should be available at like radio shack if you have one near

you can use like a straight pin and slide it along the side of the plastic piece and it should release it
