The pairs of gold pins on the motherboard should be labelled.

I need the front panel pin layout for a Gigabyte 8S648FX-RZ motherboard. (that is the power switch, reset switch, LED etc.)


Open the link for your Gigabyte MB 8S648FX-l;
http://america.giga-byte.com/FileList/Manual/motherboard_manual_8s648fx_rz(c)_c.pdf
This is your manual. Go to page 15. You can enlarge the image if needed.
You will need Adobe Reader to view the manual. If you need Adobe it is a free download;

To view the main link for the Gigabyte 8S648FX-RZ click below;

Case front panel wire colors can be confusing. Most cases use colored wires as their +positive. White is commonly used as the -ground wire. Except when connecting an internal speaker. Black colored wire is ground.

Power wont com on


The wires from a powerswitch are soldered onto it most of the time. You will either have to re-solder them, purchase a new switch or simply buy a new computer case.

The easiest would be to purchase a new power switch. Connecting it to your motherboard shouldn't be a problem if you have documentation on your motherboard. They are very cheap (around $5) and shouldn't take too long to install if you know your way around a motherboard.

Note: not all computer cases have a reset button, also the connectors for power led and hard drive produce a light, if the light does not show, power off the pc swithc the cable rooun 180deg on the connector pins and reconnect.

Motherboard pin config


All motherboards have a print beside the pins, Speaker= "speak", "pwr s" =powerswitch, "HDDled" red light on front, rst = reset switch [not allways used] "pwr led" Green led, the case wires are usualy marked on the plug ends with the same , "hdd" "reset" and so on. The power switch will work both way's around however the led lights wont. You will not hurt anything if they are the wrong way around, they just wont work so if you dont get lights just reverse the polarity. If by chance the case wires do not have labels the just trace them to the case front panel and plug them into the corresponding board pins. Regards mistyman
