I changed my mother board of the same kind . after install everything in places , the front panel swich doesn't fit my old case . where can get the front panel switch( the one with color wiress ... on/off speakers // reset etc) my old case the part that plug into motherboard is just in piece with lots of holes . can i modify it ?
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.

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.

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.
It is entirely possible that the power switch itself has come loose from the case, actually inside the case where it is normally held in place by some type of clip, or even silicone "goo". You may be pressing the button on the outside of the case, but the actual, switch is not being pressed.
You can sometimes see if this is the problem from the side of the front panel, other times you will have to remove the front of the case and verify that the actual switch is in its proper position and held in place.
If you have not removed the old motherboard from the case, then you can identify the various front panel connectors as you disconnect them and label them. Some front panel connectors have labels printed on the connectors which makes it easy for you to identify its purpose. If you have already removed the old motherboard then you will need to trace each of the leads to the front panel to see what they are connected to (eg. the LEDs and switches etc).
You will also need to identify on the new motherboard the various connectors for each function, eg power LED, hard drive LED, reset switch, power on switch, internal speaker etc. If you are lucky It may be printed on the motherboard, if not you will need to refer to the manual.
NOTE the LEDs are polarity sensitive, if the LED does not light, then swap the connector around the other way.
firstly i want to tell you that every motherbord bios has a unique program to control the devices.
it this bios is fit on another board casing then you try to firstly run the mother board with old bios. then copy the bios code by any flashing tool and then remove this bios and fit the dead mother board bios in the casing then flash it and then update it which file you copy the old one.
then your motherboard perhaps go on with the dead motherboard bios.
