    OK, as far as a front panel layout it differs from manufacturer to manufacturer, so what case are you putting it in, and do you have the old case, the front panel at least?

Best way is to trace the wires from your old case header to determine which pins are which.

Jay,
Intel Support > Intel D845EBT Desktop Motherboard > Product Specifications > Technical Product Specification,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845ebt/sb/cs-008791.htm

On this page left-click on the blue - A92200001.PDF
It may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
At the top in the header is the page number box, to the right of the Down Arrow.

IF you know the page you want you can go page, by page, until you arrive at the page you want,
Or,

1) Put your mouse cursor in the page number box.
Left-click ONCE.
2) Type the page number
3) Press the Enter key

Go to Page 14.
1.1.3 Board Layout

The plastic front of your computer tower is the Front Panel.
The area of pins (Contact pins) on the motherboard, that the wires (Cables) go to, is the Front Panel header.

P on the Board Layout points to the Front Panel header.
(Front Panel connector)

Note that the illustration of the motherboard layout, is turned 90 degrees to the Right, in relation to how it actually sits in your computer case.

If you turn the motherboard layout illustration 90 degrees to the left, as it should be, the Front Panel header has two rows of pins.
Go to Page 69.

If the view is not very clear for you, enlarge it. Click on the + sign at the top, to enlarge the view. (Zoom In icon)
E points to the Front Panel header, and it's pinout.

Note that with the motherboard sitting in your computer case, the pins are numbered ODD on the top row, and EVEN on the bottom row.

The numbering starts from RIGHT to LEFT.
Top row of pins from Right to Left;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

Bottom row from Right to Left;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8. There is NO pin 10.

Go to Page 71.
2.8.3.1 Front Panel Connector

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

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset switch. IF a Reset switch is used.

C) Pin 9 is NOT used. This is for the factory.

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the Power On LED light is dim when the computer is on, switch the wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

F) There is NO Pin 10.

Hi i have a Codegen model 450x case and i am trying to install a Gigabite GA-P35-DS3R motherboard and am having troulbe with the start switch wires, the cases wires do not matgh the diagram in the...


I'm not sure what you mean when you say the case wires don't match the diagram. You might mean there is already a plug on the end of the wiring, and this plug doesn't match the board header. If you're reusing the case from a name-brand machine like a Dell or HP, this is possible. They often get custom versions of motherboards made, and their front panel connectors are usually a nonstandard layout. On the other hand, in a generic retail case, the front panel wires normally have separate connectors on the ends for the switches, indicator LEDs and any front panel USB and audio jacks.

This is the front panel header diagram I found in the manual for your board (I looked at version 2, but the connections should be the same if yours is a different version):

pgh_pa_guy_3.png

This board has an Intel standard layout for the header. If your wiring has separate connectors, the start (power) switch wires will plug onto pins 3 and 4. I have never seen a retail case come with anything other than a two-pin plug on the end of the power switch.

If you are dealing with a custom plug on your case's wiring, what you can do is remove the pins from the housing. They almost always are held in by a plastic tab on the connector shell that engages a tang on the pin. Use a thin object like a small flat-blade screwdriver or a knife tip to lift the tab and you can slide the pin out. Insulate each pin with small-diameter heat-shrink tubing if you have it, or a layer of electrical tape. (I prefer the heat-shrink tubing, which is neater and more permanent.) Then you can put each pin over the corresponding pin on the motherboard's front panel header. Unless the pins are very loose, they will stay in place by friction. I often use this technique when salvaging a case.

As for the CPU fan, be sure you have the connector over the right pins. Here is the diagram from the manual:

pgh_pa_guy_4.png

You might need to rearrange the pins in your fan power connector if they don't line up correctly. This layout looks a little strange.

I switched gabinets and the new one has a audio and mic imput on the front and i need to connect them the the MB corectly and idk where to plug them


The PCChips support page for your board is here, where you can download the full manual as well as drivers or other information you may need. This picture shows the front panel audio header location (AUDIO1):

pgh_pa_guy.png

And here is the pin information:

pgh_pa_guy_0.png

I believe the header complies with standard layout, so the plug on the cable to the front panel audio connectors on your new case may fit as-is. Or on many cases the wires have individual connectors on the ends to push over the pins. If yours is like this, you can put them on the correct pins by following the table. The wires are marked with their functions.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

GOT THE INSIDES OF AN AMD ASUS BOARD AND A TOWER DESIGNED TO RUN GIGABYTE INTEL BOARD NEED HELP CAN I SPLIT THE FRONT PANEL WIRES AS AM UN SURE


okay, first of all no tower is designed for a specific mobo,so I imagine that the front panel connections are keyed one way and the mobo jumpers aren't the same.You can do 1 of two things you spend hours trying different connections and if your luckey get the thing to start.You could also go to the perspective websites and get the jumper layouts and match them that way.re-keying is never fun.My suggestion is to get a custom box w/ each and every wire is labled for the jumpers.I bought one last week for my g.f. for 16 bucks.GET A NEW CASE

Connecting front panel wiring to INTEL 845GRG Motherboard


Hello davideiker1, the Intel D845GRG MB manual is shared with another Intel board. (D845GBV MB). Go to this Intel site & download the D845GRG manual; http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845grg/sb/cs-008873.htm You'll need Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe from this link; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
See page 9 for motherboard layout.
The front panel connectors are shown on page 68, see item C.
On page 69 is, Table 31 shows the pin assignments for the front panel header. Front Panel Header (J9G1).
Pin 1 is power for the hard disk drive led, pin-3 is negative for the hard disk drive. Wire colors coming from the case are important. Look at all of the front case wires. The common color for each 2-pin connector will be ground. In most cases the ground wire is white, except for the internal speaker. Ground for the speaker is normally black. (This motherboards speaker is built into the MB, no hook up is needed).
Pin number 2 is positive for the case power led which lights up as green. Pin 4 is negative for the power led.
The reset switch is a bit different. Pin 5 is negative & pin 9 is positive, however if your case uses a two pin connector than connect pin 7 as ground & pin 9 for positive. The On/Off switch, pin 6 is positive & pin 8 is negative.
If this manual is not what you see on the MB, please advise.

Good luck davideiker1!

No sound from front panel of GIGABYTE GA-MA69G-S3H


Aloke,
It does mention in your manual (top of pg. 28 -notes), that in order to use the HD Front Panel Audio connector the pin configuration are different than the AC97 connections. Your current case is set up for AC97. You will have to contact Mfg. for the case click the link for Gladiator support:
http://www.a-top.com/jsp/info.jsp?number=3

You can try this, open up your control panel, look for an icon that's named Sound Effects Manager. Open it. Click speaker configuration.
This is part of Realtec's software. This is where you can setup & check both front & back ports (Audio & Mic).
If this part of Realtec did not install goto Gigabyte & down load your audio software & re-install it. (Just a suggestion).
http://www.giga-byte.com/Support/Motherboard/Driver_Model.aspx?ProductID=2554

Hope this helps. If you make the call it will be a fix.
Good luck.
