Hi rorydc, you can download the manual from Foxconn at this link; http://www.foxconnchannel.com/EN-US/support/downloads.aspx?ProductModel=848P7MB-S&TypeID=en-us0000001
You will need Adobe reader to view the manual. If you do not have this installed you can download it for free at this next link; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/ Once the manual is downloaded & opened go to the top of page 19 in Adobe reader.
Here you'll see a picture of the Front Panel Connector: FP1 Also see motherboard layout page 10 in Adobe for location of FP1 listed as number 13. With the Adobe reader you can zoom in & out.
Lastly you'll need to know which wire colors are used for positive & which are negative. Most case's use the color white & black for negative. Wire colors blue, green, light green & red are commonly positive wires. As you'll see each connection uses a 2-pin 2-wire connector for the case.
This next link is the main Foxconn web site for your board. http://www.foxconnchannel.com/EN-US/product/Motherboards/detail_overview.aspx?ID=en-gb0000173 You might want to save this link in your favorites.
If you need more help just post it here.

Good luck orydc!

Motherboard


The front of your computer is the Front Panel

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.

What you are asking for is a Front Panel header pinout.

I do not have the exact Front Panel header pinout, for your motherboard.
Tell you what I do have though..........

Looking at the Front Panel header on the Ebay link, for the Winfast 760m02-GX-6LRS; the Front Panel header looks to be below the CMOS battery, and close to the Bottom edge of the motherboard.

(Motherboard installed in computer case)

Black rectangular strip of plastic, with contact pins sticking up.
Also looks to be a GENERAL set-up for all Winfast motherboards.
(COULD be wrong here)

This is what I am referencing off of,

http://www.devhardware.com/c/a/Motherboards/Foxconn-Winfast-NF4SK8AA8EKRS-Motherboard-Review/3/

Go to the third photo down. Here you see the Front Panel wires, connected to the Front Panel header; on the motherboard.
(Below round CMOS battery)

Note that the contact pin on the Bottom row, and all the way to the Right; is NOT being used.
(I'm using a 26 inch HDTV as my primary monitor, so it may be easier for me to see)

Now look at this Front Panel header pinout, for another Winfast motherboard,

http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f15/winfast-mobo-front-panel-connection-558456.html

(Scroll down a little)

PWRLED is for the Power On LED (Light)
PWRSW stands for Power On switch
HD-LED stands for the HarDDrive activity LED (Light)
RESET stands for a Reset switch, IF USED.

Note where it has a Positive ( + ) sign, next to the pin for the PWRLED.
This is the pin the + wire from the Power On LED connects to.
It is the SAME for every LED that connects to the Front Panel header.

Let's number the contact pins, to make the explanation easier;
Starting at the Left side, Top row; going towards the Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6 and 8. There is NO Pin 10.

Starting on the Left side, Bottom row; going towards the Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Pin 2 is for the Positive wire.
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire
If the LED's are dim, (PWRLED, and HDD LED), OR; the LED's do not light up, switch the wires around.

(Pin 9 is N/C.........Not Connected. This is probably a 5 Volt test point, that was used by the factory)

There is a method you can use though, and find out what the individual contact pins are, in the Front Panel header;

Use an LED with two wires

Computer (Power Supply) plugged into power, go along the top row, and touch two pins at a time, with the two wires of the LED.

Example; Pins 2 and 4, as shown in the pinout.
Did the Power Supply come on?
No?

Go to the next two pins. Try again.
When the Power Supply comes on, you naturally know that is the two contact pins; for the Power On switch.
DO NOT touch them again. In fact connect the Power On switch wires.

Power Supply on, computer running;
Now go back along again;
1) LED light blinks?
You have the HarDDrive activity LED, contact pins.
2) LED light stays on?
You have the Power On LED, contact pins.
3) Computer restarts?
Those are the Reset switch, contact pins.

4) Nothing happens?
May be contact pins for a speaker, or contact pins that are not used.
(Speaker is for hearing BIOS Beep Codes.
You have a Piezo buzzer, to the Left of the CMOS battery; for that)

Post back in a Comment, as to the results.

If possible, I would like to ask upon you; to post the Front Panel header pinout; when you find what it is.

That way when a person in the future also has this same problem; the solution will be posted on the internet, for them to find.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

joecoolvette

Not a motherboard? OMG!

So what is it Samuel?

Looks like a cross connect termination panel to me, and front loading.

Like something I used back in the old Signal Corp days, or a fancier version for the old telephone operators.

A 'Patch Panel'.

My estimate would be;

Example;

You plug into IN, on the one all the way to the Left side.
This is number 1, and number 1 switch below; goes to it.

Now lets say you plug into OUT on number 10.
Click the switch below, and these two 'channels' connect.

Got something plugged into number 7 IN? Click the switch below for it, and it is in the line.

I'm wrong? Not the first time.
But as I said. Looks like a patch panel

Front panel connection to mother board Power switch pin


Hi careyfraser,

pcsyke_140.jpg


1. There are 8 wires from the front panel's casing, excluding USB connectors and front audio cable.

2. Just plug the front panel switch headers to the F_Panel main board connectors. 1 & 2 are positive, if the led do not light change polarity but Im sure it will.

Note:The mainboard provides a front panel connector for electrical connection to the front panel switches and LEDs. JFP1 is compliant with Intel® Front Panel I/O Connectivity Design Guide.


Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

pcsyke_118.jpg

1. If your casing has a USB header on the front bezel you can put it on any connector. You can also purchase a USB module cable or an internal card reader and plug the headers to any of those connectors.


Note: Observe Polarity, do this Vcc, -Data, +Data, Gnd ,(NC) ground is always near to NC.

Plug it at your own risk, reference image are already shown.


  • Front Panel Audio connectors


pcsyke_119.jpg
1. Look for FP_Audio header from your casing and plug it to the connector.

*Asus recommend you connect a high definition front panel audio module to this connector to avail of the motherboard's high-definition audio capability.



Hopefully this information helps.

How to connect front panel connectors to front panel headers on a imperial GL VE 20021218 motherboard


Hi there.
Get a strong flashlight and a magnifying glass (if you have one). On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW. On some boards there are no colours but the markings are the same, so a good close look.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>

Front panel connection


Hi mubarakdream, please open your manual to page 1-6, motherboard layout. Find USB20_5 & USB20_6 page 1-14, at the bottom of the motherboard. You can plug your front USB onto these USB pins. (Careful, front & side case USB's break very easily). It only takes a slight bump to break.
Leave the motherboard jumper set to default for USBPWR_56, page 1-10.
If you need the Asus manual you can download it from this link;
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4BGL-MX&SLanguage=en-us

If you need more information just post back into here.
Good luck mubarakdream!

Front pannel connection on the mother board d815eea2 motherboard


Hi Billy, please use the manual to help guide you. Turn to page 33. If you no longer have the user manual please download it from this link: http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865gvhz/sb/c70845001.pdf
You will need adobe reader to view the manual. You can down load adobe for free at this link:
http://www.download.com/Adobe-Reader/3000-2378_4-10000062.html?hhTest=1
Or directly from Adobe. http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

On pg. 3 is a picture of the motherboard's front panel pin connections. Item "C". (Front Panel pin to case LED's).
Armed with this information (Pictures), you can plainly see the pin numbers.
Page 4 shows you which is positive + & which is negative - pins.
Do not be fooled by the manual name. Intel often groups like motherboards into one manual. This manual does cover Intel's D865GV & D865GVHV motherboard. The second toughest thing to do is find which case wires or positive & which are negative.
This changes from case to case. Look at all your front panel wires. Most common ground is white in color. Positive wires are colored except internal case's speaker 2 wire. Black is negative.

Good luck Billy!
Hope you find this helpful.

Pluging in extra usb ports/Mic and headphone jacks from the tower


Answer me this. You're case is an Antec tower? The motherboard is the Asus P4P800 SE ? Is this correct?
If you have you're manual you can see what goes where on the board for front panel connector page. 2-31. (This diagram shows you how to connect the front mic & speaker).
To connect the Antec's front USB ports plug the case USB front connectors onto USB56 & USB78 shown on page. 2-30. Most case wires are already set within their USB connectors & the Antec's front USB connector should fit right on the mother board's pin's. If you need you're user manual, download from Asus by clicking on this link. http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P4P800%20SE&SLanguage=en-us

Good Luck!
