Look on the molex connector going into the MB, does it P8 & P9; or P1?

did you make sure you had the + and - sides lined up in the correct area on your motherboard PANEL pin layout? I know on the power switch and other things it doesn't matter what wires go to what polarity but on the LED I believe it's touchy like that. Maybe your case manufacturer installed the wires incorrectly? Just a few things to check.

The P-LED connectors have a +/- side to them. On some cases, the + is represented by an arrow. Make sure you are inserting them properly on the right pins.

Keep in mind that the pins are numbered verticaly from top to bottom.
