Motherboard Manual JFP1 Connector

I went and looked at the FixYa manual page for this model, but didn't find the info on how to connect the JFP1 (motherboard to case) wires, could you please help me on this one...and I think it's just great that there are people out there, understanding that not everyone can afford (financially that is) to purchase information on the Net.
Thank You,

Hi Pierre,
Though many MSI boards are similar, it would help if you would include the model number of your MSI board?
(Many times Fixya does not show your current correct model number but you can add it into your posted question). The pic's included below belong to the MSI K8N Neo3MB.
Look to page 2-16 (In manual). What is not included in the manual are the wire colors. Case wire colors do vary from case to case.
The colors: red, blue, green, light blue, light green & light red are commonly ( + ) = positive. The colors white & black are commonly ( - ) = negative. Some case wires-connectors are marked +/-, some are not marked. (The common color of each set of case wires is usually ( + ), positive)!

If your board is not like the pic's above than include your model number & I'll adjust my answer.

Good luck Pierre!

    JFP2, (Do Not) connect the power led here. Connect the power led onto JFP1.

    JFP2 is for the internal speaker.

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.

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

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.

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;

Emachine W3410,the main three wire from the motherboard to the power botton on and off switch was remove and iam not sure wish pin they go to .power led, power sw, H.D.D.led,

The eMachines W3410 uses an MSI ms-7145 motherboard.
Also known as RS480M

This is MSI Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the RS480M motherboard,

To the Right of the photo of the motherboard, you will see a gray bar with, BIOS, Driver, Utility, Manual, and RSS.
Left-click on Manual.

On the next page look under the heading to the right - Document.
Left-click on the blue -

On the final page click on the country nearest yours.
A small window will come up with the heading -

Be sure that Save File has a green dot, in the empty circle to the left.
[If not, Left-click on the empty circle to the left of Save File]
Now click on OK, below.

Where this file will go.
If you Do Not, have your documents set to save to your My Documents folder (Documents for Vista), the file will go to your desktop screen.

In either place Double-click on the file. Now go up to the left, and click on - Extract All Files.
Click on Next, and Finish.

You will now see a PDF icon. Double-click on this icon.
Go to Page 15.

The plastic panel on the front of your computer is the Front Panel.
This is where the Power On switch, Power On LED, and HDD LED are located.

The connector on the motherboard where the cables (Wires) attach to, is the Front Panel header.
The front panel header is a series of pins, sticking up out of the motherboard.

The MSI ms-7145 motherboard, (RS480M) has the Front Panel header separated into two headers.

JFP1, and JFP2

Looking at the motherboard with the Processor socket to the top, and the Ram Memory slots to the right, the JFP1, and JFP2 front panel headers are located at the extreme bottom Right, of the motherboard.

[Use the Zoom In feature (+ at top of file) to enlarge the motherboard layout on Page 15]

Now go to Page 38.
Page 38 shows the connections for the JFP1, and JFP2 headers.

The JFP1 header, and the JFP2 header, consists of two rows of pins in a horizontal column.
The pins are arranged parallel, to the bottom edge of the motherboard.

Right above the JFP1, and JFP2 header may be three pins, with two of the pins have a jumper. We will not concern ourselves with this jumper header (BIOS with Protect Jumper)

The JFP1, and JFP2 headers are close together. There is no separation in-between them.

The JFP2 header is for an internal speaker.
The JFP1 header is for the Front Panel cables.

The JFP1 header pins start from the right side of the motherboard, and go towards the left.

There are 5 pins across the Bottom. (Going from right to left)
There is NO pin, then there are 4 pins across the Top.
(Again, going from Right towards the left)

The top row of pins are numbered Evenly.
The bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.

Starting on the Right side, going towards the left for the Top row of pins, the pins are numbered,
10 (NO pin for 10), 8, 6, 4, and 2.

Starting on the Right side, going towards the left for the Bottom row of pins, the pins are numbered,
9, 7, 5, 3, and 1.

1) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.

2) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch

3) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED

4) Pins 5 and 7 are used for a Reset switch. (If applicable)

5) Pin 9 is not used.

Download the manual for you're MSI PM8M-V motherboard from MSI;
You will need to download and install Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe;
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.

Need help on connecting up motherboard to rest of pc

I downloaded the PDF Motherboard Manual for the MSI MS-6380E Version 1.0, just now.

Let's take a look at that JFP1 header.
This view is looking at the JFP1 header, sitting at the bottom right of the motherboard, TO THE LEFT of the JFP2 header. The JFP2 header is at the very bottom right hand corner. The JFP1 header is just to the left of it. The processor is to the Top/Middle.

Looking at the pins going across the top of the JFP1 header, they are as follows,
2, 4, 6, 8, and there is no 10. There is no pin for 10.
Looking at the pins going across the bottom, they are as follows,
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Pins 6 & 8 are for the Power On switch.
Pins 2 & 4 are for the Power On light, (LED light)
Pins 1 & 3 are for the HarDDrive activity light.
Pins 5 & 7 are used for a Reset switch. (IF, you have one)

Should you not have the Motherboard Manual, go here,
(If this doesn't come up as a link, copy and paste it into your address bar, then press the Enter key)
On this page click on ->Download <- to the right of
File: 6380ev1.0.exe Version: - - Release Date: - -

When you do a small window will come up. Click on the empty circle to the left of -> Save.
This file will be saved either directly to your deswktop screen, or your My Documents folder. I don't know how you have your downloads set up to be saved. I save them to my My Documents folder.

Once you see this file, double-click on it. It's a WinRar file. There will be a Microsoft 'Squawk Box' that comes up. "Warning this publisher could not be verified, ya-da, ya-da"

Ignore it! Click on -> Run
Now the WinRAR extraction archive will come up.
Click on Run.

Now go to the PDF file and double-click on it.
There's your Motherboard Manual.

Hi Hunter45,
Download the manual from MSI, click on the link below.

You ca see the 2 USB pins to the left of JMDM1.

JFP1 close up;

Open file 6330-2.pdf, page 2-22 for the pin layout for the MB USB's.
If you need more information, post here.

Good luck Hunter45!

How do hook up front panel power switch to motherboard

The simple way is to remove the front panel of the computer trace the wires to the front panel leds, make note of color pair to each led. The using the manual that came with the motherboard locate the schematic for the JFP1 connector on the motherboard, it show's where the leds wires connect to operate. If you have no manual, if you look very closely at the connector you will see where the led wires connect, you may have to use a magnifiying glass and flash light. You cannot damage anything if you accidently place the led wires in the wrong place. If the panel led wires are in a single connector and won't work on the motherboard, you can remove the wires from the connector by using a very small sharp pointed pick to push down the retaining tab on each wire, thus enabling it to be removed from the connector, just be patient.
