Ok so i managed to come across a Packard Bell Ipower X2.0 case for a very cheap price. This is normally a prebuilt system. I decided to make a new build out of it. The top of the case features a series of connectors (USB x 4, eSATA, Headphone, Mic, SD card etc. This seems to connect to the motherboards USB slots (sorry dont know their technical name) The motherboard is an Asus P7P55D. I cant seem to get these last components working at all, the build runs fine. The annoying thing is that these connectors are also linked to a system of red LEDs that really makes the case look good. Any ideas on how to get these connectors and LEDs working?

Refer to the mobo manual for case connections. The led's are most likely powered thru a 4-pin molex.
The 4 USB's should be combined (2+2) for two connections to USB on Mobo. E-sata to a sata port and phones/mic to AC97 or HD audio.
