I can not find the matching pinsforthepwsw hdd led

Open the Intel link provided;
Create a folder on your desktop and name it, Intel D815EEA
Download the file named, "" in to your Intel folder. The *.zip file must be uncompressed. You can download and install a 45 day free trial program called WinZip. Download WinZip from here; the program named Winrar will also uncompress the file;
Once the either program has been installed open the Intel folder. Right click once on the file *.zip and from the pop-up window and click, Extract Here. You will need Adobe reader to view the PDF file. Adobe is free;
Open the PDF folder. Open the "A1696401.pdf" file. This is the manual for your D815EEA board.
Open to page 69 motherboard layout. Item "C". Find pin 1. You can zoom in with Adobe by clicking the + sign in the tool bar. Than go to, Table 48. Section page 71 in Adobe.
Front Panel Connector. Example:
Pin 1 is power for the HD_PWR = Hard disk drive, Power LED. Pin 2 is ground for the HD_PWR. ECT...
Case wire colors vary. Normally the solid colors red, green, blue and green are positive. Except black which is usually ground for the internal speaker.
The wire color solid white is usually - negative. So each pair will have a common wire color used for negative.

Hope you find this helpful.

Mother Board connection

Go to the site below. Its a manual for the 800/i65GV group. Go to page 67 and zoom in. You'll get a nice look where everything goes. Two rows of pins. Upper row and bottom row. Real close to each other. Do not place connectors up to down. Connect only left to right.
The reset connector has two pins. One will be white or black. These are - grounds. So connect it to the bottom row onto the most right two pins. Moving to your left. Skip one pin. Take the Power Switch a two pin connector. Remember Black & White is ground & ground goes to your right for both rows of Mb pins.
Go to IDE_LED next. Its the last two pins towards your most left of the bottom row of pins. Move to the upper row & the power LED. Same as the bottom row keping the grounds to your right. Lastly is the speaker. Its connector holds four pins but you only use two. One in each end.

Good luck & please vote....
