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

    Thomas Lim Sep 22, 2008

    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.

You're trying to use a proprietary part on a different computer.

The plug connector you have was made for a 8(?) contact pin plug connector. (Usually 1 pin is missing, for a 'Key' pin)

The Front Panel header on the mobo you're trying to use it on, has a 10-pin Front Panel header. (Again, 1 pin missing for a Key pin)

You need to separate those individual connectors.
Yeah, I know.

This involves trying to slice/saw them out, and there's Nothing dangerous about that! (Sarcasm)

Moving on............

The connectors in that female plug are female metal terminal connectors. Individual connectors. Example,

http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/28-9420&utm_medium=Affiliate&ref=cj&utm_campaign=CommissionJunction&utm_source=CommissionJunction

The opening in the front, of course goes over the contact pin, in the Front Panel header on the motherboard.
The back of the connector, shown at the top; is crimped around the insulation of the wire.

The barrel shaped connector slides down into the individual socket hole, in the plug connector.

Looking at the Molex connector, observe the two 'Tangs' that stick out on either side. -> /

When the Molex connector is inserted into the plug connector's socket hole, the Tangs press against the sides of the connector.
When the Molex connector is at the correct depth, in the plug connector socket hole, the Tangs 'pop' out.

They pop out in small depressions, in the sides of the socket hole.
See how they angle towards the back?

If you slide the correct diameter of needle, down in the Front of the plug connector, (And in socket hole), you can depress one tang at a time.

Slides into the socket hole, right next to the Molex connector, and pushes down on the Tang.

Once depressed by the needle, lift up on THAT side a little.
Keeps the tang in a correct position.
Then insert the needle on the other side, and depress that Tang.
You can now remove wire and connector.

Takes a little practice on the first one. Second one goes a little faster, then you're on your way. Just sounds difficult explained so detailed.

With the individual wires, and their connectors; you can plug each wire in where you want. Connect to the contact pin in the Front Panel header, that you wish.

Trying to cut that connector apart, and leave individual amounts of plug for insulation; may prove unfruitful.
Most of the time the material in-between two of those Molex connectors, is very thin.

Maybe one connector will come away with enough material, maybe not. Most will not.

Also you risk slicing your fingers.

Or you could find a plug connector that fits that group of 7-pins, and transpose the wires over to it.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires connect to, is the Front Panel header.

Main wires being;
Power On switch wires
Power On LED light wires
HarDDrive activity LED light wires
Reset switch wires, IF used

Since you have the manual, out of curiosity are pins 2 and 4 Power On LED?
1 and 3 are HarDDrive activity LED?
5 and 7 are Reset switch?

For additional questions please post back in Comment.

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)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED. (Light)
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the PWR ON LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

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

JFP2:
Below JFP1 is a header that is placed Horizontally. It is parallel to the Bottom edge of the motherboard. This header with 13 pins in it, is the JLPC1 header.
(Starting on left side at the Top row; 4 pins, no pin, 2 pins.
Starting on the left side at the Bottom row; 7 pins)

To the left of the JLPC1 header is the JFP2 header.
4 pins across the Top row, 3 pins across the Bottom row.

The top 4 pins across the top are for an internal speaker. Used to hear BIOS Beep Codes.
Starting on the Left side coming towards the Right, top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
No indication of polarity.
Believe pin 2 is for the Positive wire, and pin 8 is for the Negative wire.

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.

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.

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.

Where to hookup front panel (PIII-3754LMR - AMPTRON)


Front Panel Connector The front panel header is where the connectors of hard disk drive activity lights, case speaker, reset button, power on/off button, computer power on light, and key lock, are connected to make them function smoothly. In the past days, users always have difficulty connecting the front panel due to a lack of standard location on the motherboard. Today, AOpen integrated all these disorder but essential front panel connectors into one 20-pin connector for easy usage. Connecting the front panel would no longer be the headache of installing motherboard anymore. Below is a view of this user-friendly front panel connector of AOpen motherboard.

New motherboard


You don't say what case you are using. If it is proprietary and the front panel header is all in one connector, you can carefully back the connector pins out of the block using precision screwdrivers. I keep a bunch of two pin connectors from junked machines so I can create individual connector sets when changing motherboards (eg, PWR SW, PWR LED, HDD LED and RESET). This also requires that you know the pinouts of both the old board and the new one so you can get everything connected properly.

Very doubtful you will ever find an adapter to change from one front panel block to another.

The 9-pin connector probably uses a spacer pin between the legs of the PWR LED, while it seems the 6-pin does not have RESET.

I personally think you would be better buying a new case,they are pretty cheap,and it will look like a new computer all over again,but it should not be hard buying new buttons for the case,but some times you have to tinker around with the part to see what fits,and what else can be done with it,but if you cant,then buy a new case,i bet you are turning on the computer with a screw driver,by touching the two terminals,which could mess your system up.
