Here is a link to the manual, it may be a version off but it should be close enough for your board: A8N Manual

Trying to determine if the white 2 pin plug just isnt compatible w my board or if I can find a spot on the 10 pin usb or something. The front of the tower opens up like a door kinda and u can access the dvd drives, or u can close it and it has lights going down it but I cant figure out were to plug it in on my board if theres any possibility? Its the white 2 pin one in the pic above.

Gday.

No, it is more likely needed to be plugged into a 12v plug from the PSU.
So that we can be more certain, please give us the brand and model of the computer case, we can then look at the manual.

Gday.
Without a clear picture of the plugand wiring, the following suggestions might be suitable.
The only 4 pin Molex to 2 pin connector I have seen is this, > http://www.ebay.com/...e-/250795436393 I do not think suitable.
Good chance that your LED light run on 12V but, they may require 7v or 5v, so there is a chance 12v will be to much andburn them out,
This may be OK, > http://www.ekwb.com/...-molex-12v.html
Then this cable will reduce it to 7v, > http://www.ekwb.com/...in-7v-20cm.html
Or this cable will reduce to 5v, > http://www.xoxide.co...20cm-black.html

!!Just found this site may be the place to make some enquiries, does this look like it may work? http://www.techbuy.c...h Passthrough T

Well I am happy the others here jumped in while I was away, however it seems like the white plug is indeed a fan cable from the looks of it. Is there a fan in the front of the new case? That may be a breaking point of information.
