Im pretty sure it is leds i dont but i plugged it up and it makes this screeching noise and it doesnt come on at all. I think ur suppose to plug them up to start up the computer and restart it.

Light Emitting Diodes cannot make screaching noises. They have no moving parts.

The screaching noise could be a fan, a HDD or an optical drive.

More info please.

... maybe you should read a guide or book or something BEFORE trying to build your own computer, i mean, if you are not sure if its a pII or pIII...

PSU: power supply unit
Mobo: motherboard
