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.
The hdd red wire gooes to pin #1 the hdd white wire goes to pin #3 the power sw orange wire goes to pin #6 the power sw white wire goes to pin #8 The reset sw blue wire goes to pin #7 the reset sw white wire goes to pin #5 the power led green wire goes to pin #2 the power led white wire goes to pin #4.
Now the layout of the pins is the long row (5) pins are the odd number pins 9 being the odd one and 1 is the other end of the row. 2 through 8 start at the pin accross from 1 : : : : . I hope this helps you.
If your board is the one in this manual, the pins are located very close to the CMOS battery. Page 21 in that manual shows the diagram. Power LED is the top two left pins. Hard disc LED is the bottom two left pins. Power switch is the top two right pins. Reset switch is pins 3-4 on the bottom row. Pin 5 on the bottom is not used.
You can download the manual for your motherboard here.
Inside you will find information of where does each connector go. Each connector on the case has a marking on it (HDD, PWR, RST or similar) which stands for hard disk LED, power button, reset button and so on. Connect it to the right place, and problem is solved.

Pin arrangment is Industry Standard Architecture.....
pwr led pwr sw N/C
X X X X O
X X X X O
hdd rst N/C
translated this is top row left to right ...... power led, power switch no connection
Bottom row is left to right........ hard drive, reset, no connection
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.
If the wires from the reset switch is white/blue the blue wire is positive, Hdd red/white red is positive power Green/white Green is positive etc. The wires on the speaker connector will be red/black/black/white - red is positive. The colored wire is always positive. On all GA mb's the positive connection is always towards the back of the MB and are marked with a + on the base of the pin as you can see on the photo. Hope this help.
