Answers :

You need to track the wires from the case front panel to thier locations: one will be your power switch, one your reset, one hard drive activity light, and one your power light. You want to note and label which light or switch they go to then go to the new motherboards manual and plan which wires need to go where.
\015\012 the front panel switches : reset and power switch- these are momentary switches so it doesnt matter which way they go.
\015\012hard drive activity and power light- these should have a colored wire and a black or white. the colored wire will be your + side.
