There should be a set of pins on the motherboard that connect all those cables to, if they are not labeled then you are going to need the motherboard manual. You can probable get that from the manufactures website.

If you are unable to to find out what cable goes where look on the motherboard and sometimes its printed in small setters and abbreviated. Usually if you have hooked up these connectors before on other computers they are usually arranged the same for almost every model and brand of motherboard and chassis so i recommend just guess doing trial and error.

Again If you are unable to find any labels, just play around and do it by trial and error, this will not damage any of your hardware since this will not cause and overvoltage or short circuit, all these cable connections are only for switches and LED's which hardly use and current or voltage so electrically doing this by trial and error is safe trust me.

I only recommend this if you are unable to find a documentation from manufacturers for the motherboard.

Mother Board connection

Go to the site below. Its a manual for the 800/i65GV group. Go to page 67 and zoom in. You'll get a nice look where everything goes. Two rows of pins. Upper row and bottom row. Real close to each other. Do not place connectors up to down. Connect only left to right.
The reset connector has two pins. One will be white or black. These are - grounds. So connect it to the bottom row onto the most right two pins. Moving to your left. Skip one pin. Take the Power Switch a two pin connector. Remember Black & White is ground & ground goes to your right for both rows of Mb pins.
Go to IDE_LED next. Its the last two pins towards your most left of the bottom row of pins. Move to the upper row & the power LED. Same as the bottom row keping the grounds to your right. Lastly is the speaker. Its connector holds four pins but you only use two. One in each end.

Good luck & please vote....
