Re: connections of cables

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.

Re: connections of cables

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.

There are may motherboards, but most have writing on them as to what is suppose to plug where. For example, for the power switch, the lettering might be "Pwr" or "Power" or "Pwr sw". The pins are usually together and should fit the plug on the end of the wire.

The motherboard in your computer is an MSI MS-7145, which is also called RS480M. You can download a copy of the manual here. The front panel connections are on page 2-20.

Looking at the header JFP1, pins 1 through 9 (odd numbers) are the front row, pins 2 through 10 are the back. Pin 10 is the missing pin. The power switch connects to pins 6 and 8. The power LED connects to pins 2 and 4. The HDD LED connects to pins 1 and 3. The reset button, if used, connects to pins 5 and 7.
