I am not familiar with your exact motherboard, but most commonly, the front panel connectors themselves usually have white print labeling them, and on the motherboard, similar fine white markings will be next to the appropriate pins. This is not always the case, but the front panel pins on the motherboard are usually located near the bottom right hand corner.
