Petite précision :

Les broches sur lesquels il faut brancher les connecteurs des différents éléments du boitier sont indiquées dans la notice de la carte mère (button power, LEDs, etc.). L’emplacement et l’ordre de branchement des différents éléments du boitier est susceptible de varier selon le modèle de la carte mère.

Cela concerne aussi le buzzer si vous en avez un.
