Electrical connections...

I refer to the twisted wires Green/Black, Red/Black and Yellow/Black between the On/Off switch, the LED's of the front panel [HDD activity/Power] and the x2 Pin plastic motherboard connectors. Would anyone know if these are readilly available made-up with the connector one end and the LED at the other, and if so the source? Cheers.

PS a Led only works when plugged in the right configuration. If it don't work turn the plug round

I thought it may come to that. The reason I ask is I am putting together a hybrid out of redundant bits but had to buy a new mobo. The connector pins on the mobo are in x2 connections but the old front panel "cluster" has a six in-line plastic bit which of course can't be bodged. Thanks for the tip about the LED. ;-)

Found a site in the states which sells the lot already made up for $10 but I popped into a PC Gamer shop this afternoon just to ask if they had any idea where to get what I want, and to my surprise the guy went backstage and came back with a handfull of assorted wires/connectors which he gave to me. What a nice chap ;-)
