Momentary push button wiring for PC start button

I have a 5 pin momentary push button switch I want use as an power on switch in a custom arcade case.  All I want it to do is to turn on the PC. I have no idea to wire it and the directions in this forum, on google and in videos have been no help for me. I'm a total novice when it comes to wiring switches. I'm in over my head with this kind of stuff.


I know the outer + and - are for the LED.  I just need to to know how to solder the NC - NO - C prongs together to go into the two motherboard power switch pins to turn on the PC.31kqTswj-NL._AC_.jpg.07a009d4ccc363257fd9c1a568d242e6.jpg

You just connect NO and C to the 2 pins.

NO = Normally Open, i.e. pressing the button closes the contact.
