It would be easier to order the cable and front panel board assy as one. easy on ebay.
I have worked on them for years and never bothered to trace them out. and dell doesn't post the pinout anywhere.
If you can't find one I can get it for you cheap.

Where to hookup front panel (PIII-3754LMR - AMPTRON)


Front Panel Connector The front panel header is where the connectors of hard disk drive activity lights, case speaker, reset button, power on/off button, computer power on light, and key lock, are connected to make them function smoothly. In the past days, users always have difficulty connecting the front panel due to a lack of standard location on the motherboard. Today, AOpen integrated all these disorder but essential front panel connectors into one 20-pin connector for easy usage. Connecting the front panel would no longer be the headache of installing motherboard anymore. Below is a view of this user-friendly front panel connector of AOpen motherboard.

Dell Computer Refurbished Optiplex GX260


from what I can tell you can use NORTHWOOD CPUS or POWERLEAP modified cpus on the GX260 but not prescott. as these are incompatible

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/ug/specs.htm#1110653 would suggest 400 or 533 based P4s

using Powerleap's configurator http://www.powerleap.com
it appears that it is possible to use an Intel P4 3.06GHz 533MHz 478pin 512K Northwood CPU w/Hyper-threading OEM

Front pannel connection on the mother board d815eea2 motherboard


Hi Billy, please use the manual to help guide you. Turn to page 33. If you no longer have the user manual please download it from this link: http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865gvhz/sb/c70845001.pdf
You will need adobe reader to view the manual. You can down load adobe for free at this link:
http://www.download.com/Adobe-Reader/3000-2378_4-10000062.html?hhTest=1
Or directly from Adobe. http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

On pg. 3 is a picture of the motherboard's front panel pin connections. Item "C". (Front Panel pin to case LED's).
Armed with this information (Pictures), you can plainly see the pin numbers.
Page 4 shows you which is positive + & which is negative - pins.
Do not be fooled by the manual name. Intel often groups like motherboards into one manual. This manual does cover Intel's D865GV & D865GVHV motherboard. The second toughest thing to do is find which case wires or positive & which are negative.
This changes from case to case. Look at all your front panel wires. Most common ground is white in color. Positive wires are colored except internal case's speaker 2 wire. Black is negative.

Good luck Billy!
Hope you find this helpful.
Mike
