Default Front Panel Power LED

My Lian Li|PC-60BPlusII front panel Power LED has 3-pin while my EVGA x58 3x SLI motherboard has 2-pin. Is there a converter for this one? Is there a way to work it around? I just don’t want to cause any damages if I don’t do it properly.

if the 3 pin plug only has 2 wires you will be set, Look in the book to see which one is + positive on the MB and on the plug there should be a little arrow on the positive wire, Just lift the piece of plastic that holds the contact in and move it to the middle slot so the + and - line up right, Have done it a few times when the case plugs don't match up with the MB

as a general rule the colored wire will be the + one.
