I will tell you how wire your case front panel, but before that lets test the motherboard to make sure the problem is not the board itself.
Remove all the wire connections to the front panel.
Turn the power on and with a small screw driver or anything that is metal short (touch) the two pins that are the PWR SW. (look at the list of pins I have put at the end)
If the computer turns on then it means the board is ok.
The following information is also availabe in the motherboard manual available from the gogabyte web site download section
On the motherboard next to the battery is the front panel header pins. it looks like
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 i also write them as numbers as well to make it easy for you) 0 0 0 0 0
1 2 3 4 0 0 0 0 5 6 7 8
1 and 2 are message LED. you don't need any connection to this. 3 and 4 are the power switch connections no polarity, just connect the wires 5 and 6 are the hard disk LED. 5 is the positive side (usually red) 7 and 8 are the reset switch. no polarity, just connect the wires. Next to the message LED there is a three pin connection. This is for the power LED.
Do you mean speaker or front panel audio? The front panel audio connector is located at the rear of the board, behind the PCI connectors - the speaker connections are in the panel connector block (2x10 pin header) located at the front left of the board.
With the board in it's normal position, the speaker pins are on the right hand side of that block, on the pin nearest the front and the one 3 positions behind that

Front of board
if colours don,t match up. your main connectors hdd/pwr/reset remove the front panel on the computer. and check from the switches located on the front panel. or you could use a multimeter and test for continuity. if you have one.
you should have green/white red/white orange/white Or blue white.
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.
