Hello, I have installed MSI Z87-G43 into the case and am in the process of connecting the cables from the case. I have them all in except the H.D.D LED, LED +, LED -, 2x Power SW. Please help! If there is no slot on my Mobo for those connectors is there an adapter I can buy or maybe put them in a different slot? Thank you for your time.

At the bottom right of your Motherboard there is section called JFP1.

It is laid out like this:

1 2 3 4
A B C D E

Each number/letter is representing the pins. If I'm not mistaken:
A= HDD LED +
B= HDD LED -
C= Reset Switch -
D= Reset Switch +
E= Resevered NOT USED
1= Power LED +
2= Power LED -
3= Power Switch +
4= Power Switch -

Hope this helps! If you need a better picture go to MSI's page and download the manual. Its on Page 38 of the PDF. I have the Z77-G41 and it was the same way, but came with a labeled adapter which was nice but isn't needed.

Thank you so much! Your diagram is plenty helpful. Like I said, this is my first time building so thanks for the tip!
