Front Panel Connection Problem


Wondered if someone could help my frustration please.

I am trying to connect the front panel connections to an Intel D845HV board. The PC is manufactured by a company once known as Tiny. I have studied the technical manual and also found a good guide to the pin numbers found here

My problem though is that I am not sure which way round I am supposed to be looking at the board when plugging the cables in. I have the following cables that are causing my problem:-

2 Pin Power Switch cable (Green & White)
2 Pin Reset Switch cable (Red & White)
2 Pin HDD LED cable (Black & Red)
Single Pin unmarked cable (Green)
Single Pin unmarked cable (Black)

so as you can see especially with the unmarked cables I am stuck. All I have connected is the power cable from the PSU to the Motherboard. Once I can connect the front panel connectors correctly then I will connect drives, PCI cards etc.

Can anyone please help?

With thanks,

Front panel connection to mother board Power switch pin

Hi careyfraser,


1. There are 8 wires from the front panel's casing, excluding USB connectors and front audio cable.

2. Just plug the front panel switch headers to the F_Panel main board connectors. 1 & 2 are positive, if the led do not light change polarity but Im sure it will.

Note:The mainboard provides a front panel connector for electrical connection to the front panel switches and LEDs. JFP1 is compliant with Intel® Front Panel I/O Connectivity Design Guide.

Hopefully this information helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi ,, i have just fitted a intel d845gvsrb in my pc but i am not sure where the tower speaker wire , reset sw , power sw , power led , h h d led and the black single one go`s can you please help me ..

The Picture below shows you the locations of the places to put those wires are in relation to your motherboard. In yellow is the power switch and such. and the audio connection is in red.

The Pin layout for the power and other connector are as follows:

the layout for the audio header is as follows: avatar23454_8.jpg

To install the cable that connects a front panel audio solution to the front panel audio header, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Turn off the computer and disconnect the AC power cord.
  2. Locate the front panel audio header (J8A1).
  3. Remove the three jumpers from the header (this disables the back panel audio connectors).
  4. Install a correctly keyed and shielded front panel audio cable.
  5. Connect the audio cable to the front panel audio solution.

To restore back panel operations follow these steps:
1. Remove the front panel audio cable. 2. Install a jumper on pins 5-6 (rear R channel). 3. Install a jumper on pins 9-10 (rear L channel). 4. Install a jumper on pins 1-2 (mic). 5. Replace the cover.

Hi sivaprasanna,
Do you still have your manual? If so turn to page 72 for location.
For a close look at the motherboard front panel led to MB pins look at these two pics.
Location of front panel connections;

Item " A " is the front panel MB pins.

Pic two is the layout for each front panel connection;

The power on jumper uses pins 7 & 8.
Pin 7 is positive & pin 8 is negative.

Good luck sivaprasanna!
