Guys, I have a faulty power switch on my Corsair Tower PC, Sometimes it works sometimes i have to push it 30 times to switch my computer on. I have had a look in the case and found it to be a tiny square switch (I'll try to upload a pic of it soon) with four cables coming out and then joining the tiny power connectors on the motherboard. Is it possible to buy these so I can replace it ?

most of those switches are swappable with just about any other intermittent switch - just need to know the wiring.

You can buy complete button/cable and connector from eBay very cheaply. I have loads, handy for testing motherboards..

The majority of those switches are swappable with pretty much some other irregular switch - simply need to know the wiring.
