Front panel connections


I don't find the Front Panel header pinout online, nor do I have an MSI MS-5191 in the shop.

I would suggest using one the LED lights with two wires.
(3-wire is a dual color LED)

There are two rows of pins. Usually the Power On switch, Power On LED, and Speaker; are on the same row.
HarDDrive activity LED, and Reset Switch are on the opposite row.

Speaker has 4-pins designated for it. All the others use 2-pins.
(Unless the PWR ON LED is a dual color jobbie)

Touch two pins next to each other, in the same row; with the 2-wire LED.
Start with finding the Power On switch first.

Usually the top row 1st two pins are Power On LED (Light)
Next in line are the 2 pins for the Power On switch.
Bottom row 1st two pins are usually HarDDrive activity LED (light)
Next 2-pins are usually Reset switch.

May not apply to a motherboard old enough to use a Socket 7 processor socket.
There may be 18 to 20-pins.
Bear in mind that many are not used, and probably 4 are for an internal speaker, for hearing BIOS Beep Codes.
May be two separate Front Panel headers.

Once you find the two contact pins in the Front Panel header, for the Power On switch; I would put the Power On switch wires on.
The small pin connector on the wire/s, will keep you from accidentally touching these two pins again, when the computer is on.

Now you have the two pins for the Power On switch, and the computer is running; then keep touching 2-pins at a time with the LED. (Light Emitting Diode)

LED stays on? You have the Power On LED (Light) pins.
LED blinks? HarDDrive activity LED (light) pins.
Computer restarts? Reset switch pins.

Look for abbreviations near the pins in the Front panel header.

PWR, Pwr, Pwr On, Sw, and SW; are just some of the abbreviations for the Power On switch.

HDD LED, and HDD are two for the HarDDrive activity LED. (Light)
(If it states HDD SW it is the Power On switch. Weird old way of marking)

RST, Reset, and RSW, are for the Reset Switch.
(Reset Button)

If you see 4 pins marked with a bracket ( [ -> Turn so it's horizontal), these are for the internal speaker.

Type MSI front panel connector in your search bar, and look at -> images. See if you can find an image of your MSI Front Panel header pinout.

You can bet MSI carried out that Front Panel header pinout, on other MSI motherboards, besides the MS-5191.

The MSI MS-5191 may have been a motherboard made by MSI, especially for a pre-built computer manufacturer, and not listed on their website as an OEM motherboard.
(Original Equipment Manufacturer)

Won't have the Front Panel header pinout, listed on MSI's support website. (Doesn't)
But you can bet there IS an OEM motherboard made by MSI, that the Front Panel header DOES match.

May be different expansion slots, or motherboard chipset, or whatever; but the same Front Panel header pinout.

Do not have the Front Panel header pinout.

Do have;

Take an LED (Light), with two wires, and check the pins with it.
There is a Top row of pins, and a Bottom row.

Touch the first two pins in the Top row, left side. Does it light up?
No? Go to the next two pins. No? Go to the next two pins.

Keep going until the Power Supply comes on. (It is a BRIEF touch. The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch )
Now you have the Power On switch pins.

LED light blinks? You have the Harddrive activity LED. (Light)
LED light stays on? You have the Power On LED. (Light)
Computer restarts? The Restart switch pins.

Short something out? NOPE. You can't hurt a thing using this method.

4 of those pins are for an internal speaker. (To hear BIOS Beep Codes with)

That's 12 of those 18 pins. (Probably less. It is two rows of 9 pins, that are stated for the Front Panel header)
4 of those pins probably won't be used.
You won't be using IR. (Infra Remote) (Only uses 2 pins, though)

Most of the time with an 18-pin Front Panel header;

Top Row:
Starting at Left side, going towards Right;
Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18.
May be a pin missing in this row, or two.

Borrom row:
Starting at Left side, going towards Right;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, and 19.
Same thing here. May be 1 or 2 pins missing.

Pins 2 and 4 are usually for the Power On LED. (Light Emitting Diode)
Pins 6 and 8 - Power On switch.
Pins 10, 12, 14, and 16 may be for the Internal speaker.
Pins 18, and 20 are usually not used.

Pin 1 and 3 for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pins 5 and 7 for the Reset switch.

Pin 9 is usually reserved for the factory, and is a 5 Volt test point.
Pins 11, 13, 15, 17 for speaker; or not used. Same with pin 19.

(So speaker pins may be top row, or bottom row. Dunno )

Another thing. This motherboard is old enough to be using a 3 wire LED, or dual color; for the Power On LED.
LED usually had the colors Green and Yellow.
Yellow for 'Normal' mode, Green for 'Turbo' mode.

(Which is a bunch of cr@p.
Green LED, or Turbo Mode; was actually NORMAL.
Normal mode was the computer operating BELOW the Normal mode)

So pins 2, 4, and 6, may be for a 3 wire Power On LED.

How do i plug the leds in Gigabyte GAP67AD3B3?


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.

Motherboard installed in computer case; Processor to the TOP,
Ram Memory slots to the RIGHT, long PCI slots to the BOTTOM, the Front Panel header is at the Bottom/Right corner.

Two rows of pins, may have F_PANEL silkscreened next to it on the motherboard.

The TOP row of pins is numbered EVEN.

From the LEFT side of the motherboard, going towards the RIGHT side, across the top row of pins;

Pins 2, 4, 6, 8, (NO pin 10, NO pin 12), 14, 16, 18, and 20

The BOTTOM row is numbered ODD.

From the LEFT side of the motherboard, going towards the RIGHT side, across the Bottom row of pins;

1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, (NO pin 13), 15, 17, and 19.

A) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED.
IF, the LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

These pins are used for a Power On LED, that has TWO wires.
It is a single color LED.

B) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On Switch.

C) Pins 14, 16, 18, and 20, are for the internal speaker. The speaker used for BIOS Beep Codes.
Pin 14 is for the Positive ( + ) wire. Pin 20 is for the Negative ( - ) wire.

D) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is operating, (Active), switch the wires around.

E) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset Switch, IF a Reset switch is used.

F) Pins 9 and 11 are used for a Chassis Intrusion Switch.

G) Pins 15, 17, and 19 are used for a Power On LED.
These pins are used for a Power On LED that has THREE wires.
For a Power On LED that is dual color.

How to connect the front panel sould device?


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

TRYING TO HOOK UP MU POWER BUTTON NEED TO KNOW


Hi there
The front panel connectors are mainly,
  • harddisk activity connector
  • power switch connector
  • reset switch connector
  • power LED connector
  • speakers connector
  • USB connector
Harddisk activity connector
This normally comes red in colour and is labeled as HDD-LED
Power switch connector
This comes green in colour and is labeled as POWER-SW
Reset switch connector
This usually comes grey in colour and is labeled as RST-SW
Power LED connector
This is usually green in colour and is labled as PWR-LED
Speakers connector
This speaker will give different beep sounds during boot to tell the user if there is any errors. It occupies 4 pins, however only 2 is important for the function. Be sure to connect the red coloured cable to the positive polarity and the black to the negative.

Gigabyte GA-8INXP Motherboard Problem- front connector pins


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.
