    In my opinion, just use one.

    I have never seen a double "power" led header setup, Are they daisy chained together?

    You should have,

    Power switch header
    System power led header
    Hard drive led header
    Reset switch header
    internal chassis speaker header

    I suspect they are daisychained together for mobo compatibility issues.

    Plug one in. start up the pc and see how your lighting looks. Adjust as needed :p
