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.
On your motherboard there are two.
JFP1 and JFP2.
Junction Front Panel 1 and Junction Front Panel 2.
JFP1 is on the Right side of the motherboard, down in the Bottom/Right corner.
It sits Vertically on the motherboard.
Two columns of contact pins.
5 on the Left side, 4 on the Right side.
Go to Page 14 - Front Panel Connectors: JFP1/JFP2
The pins on the Left side are numbered ODD.
The pins on the Right side are numbered EVEN.
Starting on the Top/Left side, coming down;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9.
Starting on the Top/Right side coming down;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.
A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.
B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.
C) Pin 9 is N/C. Not Connected.
This is reserved for the factory. Believe it is a 5 Volt (DC) test point.

It is for a TWO wire Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the PWR LED is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

A) Pins 1, 3, and 5 are for a THREE wire Power On LED light.
I assume Pin 1 is for the Negative wire ( - ), and Pins 2 and 3 are for the two Positive wires.
It's for a dual color Power On LED light.
Example: Turbo Mode has a Green light, Normal Mode has a Yellow light.
B) Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8 are for an internal speaker.
Internal speaker is used to hear the BIOS Beep Codes.
