Front Panel Connector: JFP1 hookup

I had to buy a new case for my computer. I have changed everything over to the new case, but cannot determine how to set up the jfp1 connector.

I can tell which pins are for power switch, led, reset, and hdd led, but which way do I turn the plug for power switch, or hdd led, or reset. All are 2-pin plugs, i need to determine which pin is - and which is +. The led connection is composed of two wires with a one pin plug marked + and another one pin plug marked -

    Does not matter actually. It will still display the light anywhich way you plug in the HDD led

    As long as you plug it in both pins marked HDD Led pins then it does not matter to which one you plug in the positive or negative. Dont worry it will not short as there is no way to plug it in wrong for the HDD led be careful with the front USB connections to the board though.

Motherboard Layout

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.

JFP1 is the Front Panel header.
JFP2 is an additional header. To be discussed after JFP1.

JFP1 is on the Right/Bottom corner. It is placed Vertically.
(Parallel to the right bottom edge of the motherboard)

Above it's left corner is JUSB2. (Front Panel USB header 2)
Above JUSB2 is the SATA2 connector. To the left of the SATA2 connector is the SATA1 connector.
To the left of the SATA1 connector is the CMOS battery.

The contact pins are arranged in two columns.
4 pins on the Left side, 5 pins on the Right side.

Go to Page 14. JFP1 pinout, and JFP2 pinout, is at the Bottom of the page.

JFP1:
Starting on the Bottom going towards the Top, Right side;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

Starting at the Bottom going towards the Top, Left side'
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected. (Probably 5 Volts positive, and used by the factory only)

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit)
the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE:
A) Reaching inside your Unplugged from power computer, to work on it.

B) Before removing any hardware components from their anti-static bags, or cartons.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH the metal frame (Unpainted) of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return ]

Page 11 shows the motherboard layout. No hardware components are attached, no cables are attached.

The Processor socket has Socket 462 on it, at the top/middle.
(Socket 462 is also known as Socket A. It is strictly an AMD processor socket )

Power Cables:
A) 20-pin ATX main power cable:
To the immediate left of the processor socket is the 20-pin ATX main power cable connector. Two rows of 10 socket holes, in a whitish opaque rectangular connector on the motherboard.

This is an example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

Note in the middle photo, and photo to the right, the Lock on the side of the power cable connector.
This Lock works like a see-saw on a playground. The top is squeezed in, and this brings the hooked end away from the motherboard connector's tab.

When the power cable is fully connected to the motherboard, the Lock's hooked end will be locked over the tab, on the motherboard connector.

B) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable:

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Your motherboard doesn't use it. The AMD processors it will support do not require more power to the motherboard. If your Power Supply has one of these, wrap it up out of the way.

That's it for power cables, and the motherboard.

Power cables and internal Peripherals:

The harddrive is IDE (PATA)
Uses a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

If you have a Floppy Drive it uses a 4-pin small Peripheral power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#floppy

The same power cable is also used for a Card Reader.

IDE 1 connector on the motherboard is used for the Harddrive.
IDE 2 is used for an optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
(Page 37 )

The connector on the harddrive's flat ribbon cable, has a Locating Lug on it's connector. A small rectangular 'bump'.
This lines up with the cutout in the motherboard connector. (IDE 1)

Should be the same for the optical drive's flat ribbon cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard. (IDE 2)

IF there is no cutout, or bump on the flat ribbon cable connector;

The flat ribbon cable has a faint red strip on one side.
This red strip is on the same side as number 1 wire.

On the motherboard, number 1 pin is closest to the white long PCI slots.
The red stripe of the flat ribbon cable, goes towards the long white PCI slots. (Both for IDE 1 and IDE 2)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallel_ATA#IDE_and_ATA-1

Scroll down to the illustration under the bold subheading -
Parallel ATA Interface

For the harddrive, and optical drive;
The red stripe goes towards the power cable connector, on the harddrive, or optical drive.
Pin 1 is closest to the power cable connector side.

CFAN1 is for the Processor fan. (Page 38)
SFAN1 is for a computer case fan. (3 wire connector for fan cable)

[ 3 pin connectors on motherboard. Two pins ( +12V, and GND ) are for power to the fan. The Sensor pin, is so BIOS can determine if the fan needs to speed up, or slow down.
Applies to both the Processor { CPU} and computer case fan ]

The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The small area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the wires (Cables) from the Front panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

For this motherboard there are two headers.
JFP1 and JFP2.
(Page 39)

Looking at the motherboard installed in the computer case; Processor to the Top, Ram Memory slots to the Right; the front panel headers are located at the Bottom/Right corner.

They are situated horizontally, with two rows of pins.
The one to the OUTSIDE edge of the motherboard is JFP2.
To the immediate left of JFP2 is JFP1.

JFP1:
Two rows of pins.
4 across the top, then a space. (No pin)
5 across the bottom.

The Top row of pins is numbered EVEN.
The Bottom row of pins is numbered ODD.

Starting on the Left side towards the white PCI slots, and on Top, and going to the Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is No Pin 10.

Starting on the Left side towards the white PCI slots, and on Bottom, and going to the Right:
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the Power On LED lights is dim with the computer on, switch the wires around.

B) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

C) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
(HDD)
Pin 1 is for the Positive wire.
If the HDD activity LED light is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

D) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

E) Pin 9 is reserved for the factory, and is NOT used.

JFP2:
IF the Power On LED light is dual color, (Two colors) it connects here.

The Top row is numbered EVEN.
The Bottom row is numbered ODD.

4 contact pins on the Top row; 3 contact pins on the Bottom row.
Starting on Top, and on the left side, (Towards the JFP1 header),
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Starting on Bottom, towards the JFP1 connector, and going towards the Right;
Pins 1, 3, and 5. There is No Pin 7. Just a blank spot.

A) Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8 are for the internal speaker. The speaker so you can hear BIOS Beep Codes.

B) Pins 1, 3, and 5 are for a dual color Power On LED light.

How to know what wires are what, coming from the Front Panel?
Ease the Front panel loose, and follow the wires.
You will see where the Power On wires connect to the Power On switch.

(The Power On switch is located inside the Power On button assembly.
This is a basic example of an ATX power on switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html )

May be marked on the connector, for the wires that go to the Front Panel header, (JFP1) as PWR, or SW.

The connector on the Harddrive activity LED wires, may be marked HDD, or HDD LED.

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

I NEED DRAWING FOR THE FRONT PANEL CONNECTION


Download the manual for you're MSI PM8M-V motherboard from MSI; http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=searchresult&keywords=PM8M-V&table=download
You will need to download and install Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Open manual to page 9. See Front Panel Connectors: JFP1 & JFP2. There is no need to connect JFP2's Power LED jumper, this is completed at JFP1. Each wire jumper coming from the case will have one wire color in common with all connectors except the speaker jumper. That common colored wire will be use as negative.
The speaker wire commonly as red is positive and black is negative.

Cheers'

Power switch,reset switch,power led connections to motherboard?


Hi ramjet007;

This is strange because MSI doesn't have information on the 7548, since it was made directly for HP. Here is a diagram of another MSI similiar and usually they have their pins on their jumpers pretty much the same. You would use JFP1, And Pin's 1&3 would be the hard drive, 2 & 4 would be the LED, 6 & 8 would be the power switch, and 5&7 would be the reset switch. I know your motherboard is setup differnently, but your JFP1 should be in the right hand corner all by itself.
