They connect to the JFP1 connectors on the lower right edge of the board. The power LED connects to the 2 and 4 pins, The HDD LED to the 1 and 4 pins, the reset to the 5 and 7 pins and the power switch to the 6 and 8 pins. The pins are numbered up down right to left like this.
Can you go to the MSI website and download the manual, looking at your motherboard usually it can be found at the bottom of the motherboard, usually the right side, also you should see small abbreviations of the connection relative to the pins they are associated to. If you need more help just ask. Thanks Rick.
Hi carlmtclem, your not alone when it comes to hooking up the right led connector to the MSI MB. Firstly, you need to know what wire color is positive & which is negative. Most commonly the color white is ground/negative. Wire colors do vary from case to case. So look at your case led wires. Which ever color is common for each 2-pin connector, is negative. (Except the speaker wire). All other colors are positive. (The speaker wire color for negative is usually black & red is positive). Your MSI board has two separate sets of pins. JFP2 is used for the speaker only. Do not connect the power led there.
Pin one for JFP1 is shown in the manual. Pin 1 is positive & pin 3 is negitive for the HDD-LED, ECT.
Need more information?
Good luck carlmtclem!

to reattch one by one.
try with only smps ,mother bord and ram.
also check processor sitted correctly.
The only way to to fix this if your headers on your wires aren't labeled is to trace them back from the switch it self. Usually they are white and red. The orientation on the motherboard pins doesn't matter since it's only a switch. Make sure you are putting the plug onto the power switch jumpers, and not the power led, reset, etc..
