Not only am I having trouble finding out exactly where each thing goes (the manual doesn't show it) but I have big hands and am having a lot of trouble trying to figure everything out and put it in its place. I have seen the Q-Connectors on eBay for only around $3 and that would be completely worth it if it works. So, anyone know if it will work or have an Extreme4 and a Q-Connector and is willing to try it out?

No, the Q connector will not work.
The Asrock use's a standardized front panel pinout, it's silk-screened on the board.

So that image is how my board (the ASRock Extreme4) is laid out? If so I had them completely wrong. Which makes it odd that the power switch worked, just neither of the LEDs. Haven't tried the reset switch yet.

Yes, you can just about make it out here

Polarity matters when it comes to the LEDs, not the switches.

OK, when you look at that picture you just linked, do you see the 3 pins to the left of the other front panel pins? According to the user manual you are supposed to plug the negative power LED into the top of those three, and the positive into the one below that.

Should I plug the pins in there or in the place shown in your picture above? Or am I wrong and those 3 pins are for something else? If so, what are those for?

Page 35 of your manual has a diagram exactly like the picture I provided, and states to connect everything there.
I don't know why there's a seperate PWR_LED header

OK thanks. I will plug everything in this way as soon as I get off work. Will update after I try it out.
