I just replaced the dead mobo in my Acer Aspire E380 case with an Asus M3A78-CM but I can't connect the front power button(or any front leds , etc). The connector is different on the new mobo (bigger and different pin layout). The Acer case has a tight 13 pin connector. What should I do?

you have two opts. 1. if you can brake apart the connector to individual wires, then you can hook it up that way. or 2. if you cannot brake apart the front pannel connects, then you'll have to make your own.

seperate each two wires from your power switch, reset switch, front panel leds, etc. strip the wires and attach these items to their respective ends:

plug them in. that's it.

sometimes I get a 3 pin connector w/ my store bought leds and I have a 2 pin connector outlet. so, I'll use sisors and just cut out the third empty connector. basically making my own two pin connector
