    i guess i 'll scan my diagram and post it up. b/c my reference manual doesnt say what this plug is for.

    I have this case. All the lights are up and running but the temp gauge is not. The sales dude at frys told me there would be a plug for the temp gauge on my mobo.

    lol, no, the guy from frys is a dumbass -- which is typical for frys.

    There's a thermister that you can place that will measure the temperature. You have likely not plugged in the guage (4-pin molex power connector) to the power supply.

    Yea i see the thermister. I also have plugged in the 4 pin molex power connector and that lit up the front face of the case. However the temp gauge still is not on. I hope i did not get a defective case. That mean i would have to take out everything and return it. :wtc:

    BTW, thank you very much for your suggestions. I just finished builing my comp and its working fantastic. just the freaking temp gauge is not working and it irritates me

    The INT HD is probably the Hard Drive Activity light.

    I circled the plug in that I'm talking about. My reference manual doesnt say anything about it.

    that does NOT go on the intr hdr. Please get that out of your head.

    Pull the bezel off the case and check if it became unatached. It looks like that should plug into something to provide power. You bought a *really* cheap-quality case, so I wouldn't be surprised if the QA is lacking.
