Question about MSI K9N6SGM-V Motherboard
The connectors you are referring to, are the Front Panel connectors. The wires come from the Front Panel, where your Power On button is.
The pins on the motherboard are called Headers.
Your Power On switch, (It's behind that button), the Reset switch, Harddrive Activity Lamp, (Light), and so on, connect to the Front Panel headers on the motherboard.
That explained, let's continue;
This is in reference to the MSI K9N6SGM-V motherboard. If this is not the model of your MSI motherboard, come back with an additional comment, and state the Model Number.
The link below is to MSI Support, and the download page for the ->motherboard manual. It is a Zip file. I'll explain how to open that file.
(Copy and paste the above link into your address bar, then press the Enter key)
Under the Download heading on the right, click on -> M7309v1.1.zip
(It's in Blue)
On the next page I recommend clicking on -> U.S, in the blue button.
A small window will pop-up. Left-click on the small empty circle to the right of -> Save.
Now, if you do not have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, (Start>My Documents), this will go to your desktop screen.
Minimize all windows that are open, to see your desktop screen.
On your desktop screen you will see a new yellow folder, with ->M7309v1.1.zip, underneath it.
Double-click on it. In the next window go up to the top left, and click on -> Extract all files. In the next window click on ->Next, then click on Next again.
(Same thing if it's in your My Documents folder)
Now click on-> Finish. You will now see a PDF file with -> 7309v.1.1(G52-73091X2).pdf
Double-click on that file name.
You will now be looking at the Motherboard Manual, for your MSI motherboard.
Page 7 shows your Front Panel headers. There are two of them. JFP1, and JFP2. (Junction Front Panel 1, and Junction Front Panel 2)
JFP1 is on the bottom right. There are 5 rows of 2 pins each. The pins go down in a column. There is NO pin on the top Left of the column.
JLPC1 is a header to the immediate Left of JFP1. (It has 7 rows of 2 pins, but 1 pin is missing 3 over from the right side, and on top) Disregard the JLPC1 header. The JFP2 header is to the Left of the JLPC1 header.
It has 5 rows of 2 pins, with NO pin in the bottom right corner.
At the very bottom of Page 13 it shows you where your Front Panel connectors go.
(When I refer to the page numbers, look at the very top of the PDF file in the Square box. The Square box is to the right of the Blue Down Arrow.
I am not referring to the page number on the page itself)
