Hopefully you can help me. I am installing the MSI 651-V Motherboard
and I want to make sure I am hooking up the power, reset, and LEDs the
right way. I dont want to fry the board I just waited so long to get. I
couldnt seem to find anything else and I am hoping to get this project

Re: Power button hookup confusion
This applies directly to the MS-7082 motherboard. I was able to see that some pins are indeed labeled. Looking at the board where the pins are in the lower left position, starting on the right, on the outside (the green pins) are for the power LED. One looks like it has the colors striped. That's the positive terminal. (if lite won't lite, revers connection) The next two are black. That's for the power switch. Again, one is designated as positive. On the other row, there were no indicators to show what is what. However, there may actually be some common placement of the connectors. I have
two motherboards that I'm swapping out. One is the MS-7082 and the
other is a P5GC-MX from ASUS. The ASUS manual shows the same pin placement for the power led and switch. It shows the same missing pin in the same position. I'm betting the other two connectors will be the same. The HD LED is the first two on the right (or the two red connectors). The next three (blue) are for the reset switch. On the ASUS, only the right two connectors are for the reset switch. This may be the only place where testing will have to be done. That last pin has a plus on it and the reset switch does have positive and negative connectors. I hope this helps.

CPU Installation Procedures for Socket AM2
1. Please turn off the power and unplug the power cord before
installing the CPU.
2. Pull the lever sideways away from the socket. Make sure to raise
the lever up to a 90-degree angle.
3. Look for the gold arrow on the CPU. The CPU can only fit in the
correct orientation. Lower the CPU down onto the socket.
4. If the CPU is correctly installed, the pins should be completely embedded into the socket and
can not be seen. Please note that any violation of the correct installation procedures may
cause permanent damages to your mainboard.
5. Press the CPU down firmly into the socket and close the lever. As the CPU is likely to move
while the lever is being closed, always close the lever with your fingers pressing tightly on top
of the CPU to make sure the CPU is properly and completely embedded into the socket.
Installing the CPU Cooler
1. Position the cooling set onto the retention mechanism.
Hook one end of the clip to hook first.
2. Then press down the other end of the clip to fasten the
cooling set on the top of the retention mechanism.
Locate the Fix Lever and lift up it.
3. Fasten down the lever.
4. Attach the CPU Fan cable to the CPU fan connector on

Make sure the power cables are plugged into the pins properly on the motherboard.
Once you do this then go ahead and reseat the power supply connectors to the motherboard. Only hook up these two connectors from the power supply for now.
Try turning on the computer and hopefully you will get it to turn on now. If you can't then make sure the switch on the power supply is set to 115v. Once this is done try turning on the computer again.
If you still can't get it to turn on then try a known good working power supply or new power supply. If it still doesn't turn on then you know at this point that the motherboard is bad.
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.
it states that there are SPdif ports, I cannot see any hookups on the mainboard for these, however if you look on page 26 of the manual you can see that there is a coaxial output SPdif and an optical SPdif out, you should be able to connect to those without any problems
