    Yes, if you could that would be terrific.On my mobo the top 2 are for power led {left +,r-},top right power switch {l + r-},bottom left hdd led {l + r -and bottom right reset switch {l - r + }.If you tell me according to your case and motherboard if a)the top side of the f/p mobo connecto} r wires that have the white labelling on them.If left is + or -.2)If the the hdd led is on the left side on the bottom set of the dual 2 pin connectors which has the white lettering printed on it.I'm almost positive the power led's are on the topset,as those 2 are individual 1 pinners and the power switch has the name on it is on the right side of those 4 which are factory taped together.

    Mine has been up running since August 2012. Working good as I'm using mine on my recording studio PC and it has to be quiet. The only thing I've changed is the noisy OEM fans on my H80 liquid cooler (replaced with "quiet" fans).

    I'll go through mine this morning and list what I have.

    I never had any problems with the front panel connections (e.g. LED's, switches, etc) to the motherboard (Gigabyte GAZ77X UD5H). The problem I had was the wiring for the fan/fan control.

    What you need is Corsair sku # CC-8930017. I have a 400R and when I purchased it one of the USB3 ports was dead and the first time they sent a replacement panel it was the wrong unit. I was going to send it back but they told me to keep it and replaced it with the correct part for my 400R. If Corsair is slow to respond send me a PM and I'll give you this one.


    Here you can see how I replaced mine.

    My Gigabyte motherboard's front panel connections are not the same as yours. Thus whether I have plus on the right side or left side doesn't correlate with yours.

    A comment on my Corsair case. I recently built a second system using a Cooler Master HAF932 Advanced case. That case is a little taller and won't fit where I have the Corsair case mounted or I would swap the cases. I like the HAF932 much better, and it went together easier and no defective parts like I had with the Corsair.

    Yeah my case is a Corsair product control issue.It shouldn't have been shipped anywhere without anything printed on all of the front panel connector's.Out of 13 email's with Ram Guy from Corsair, I still don't have an rma for the case or it'i/o panel.

    So by the look of it.The one I thought was HDD Led is actually Reset Sitch.Reset Switch is actually HDD Led and both go on my mobo with where the labelling should've been, at the botom.Thanks, I'll give that a try in a bit.

    It's now finally appearing that I received a defective case. All my part's work outside the case. Now I'm just waiting to here back from Corsair's RamGuy as their rma process won't run properly in my Xbox 360's version of I.E. No plugins/addons can be used in it. I may be getting a used Acer notebook w/W7HP in 2 weeks if they still have it. Either way hopefully I'll have my current desktop working by mid-May. After that's running, I only have 3 more upgrades for it. 1. 250-256 gb. ssd 2. 3 tb. Seagate Barracuda and 3. GTX 660ti or GTX 770.

    Corsair seems to be good with their warranty service, although parts shouldn't "break" or be messed up to start with. As I noted I had an initial problem with my 500R case - the speed switch for the front panel fan did not work. Corsair sent a new front panel assembly which fixed the fan speed issue.

    Three weeks ago, with 9 month old case, one of the two USB ports on the front panel quit working (it was the least used port). After troubleshooting the problem was isolated to the front panel port (or cabling). I contacted Corsair through their on-line form and they immediately issued a RMA for another new front panel. The case is not a year old yet and two problem front panel assemblies.

    I had it with the Corsair case problems, and last week replaced it with a Coolermaster HAF XM case from newegg. I'm going to use the Corsair 500R case for another project and with the new front panel assembly where its going should not be an issue.

    Actually this is after Corsair replaced the case's front i/o panel wiring. I don't think I'll ever buy another Corsair case again. Also, they don't mention anywher on their site that their case's that come with a fan-controller, are propriety. This mean's it only works with the stock fan's that come with the case. Their own after-market fan's won't work with it. Yes their pre-installed fan's are 3 pin fan's like other's, but they're wired differenly than any other fan. The only normal fan is the rear exhaust fan, which will work on any mobo. or after market fan controller's fan header.
