It still too hard to make out. Do you remember how the motherboard was wired on the old case? The pins on the motherboard should give you some type of clue as to what wires go into it. Like Speakers might be SPK, the power switch wire might be labeled PWR on the motherboard, LED for the lights, etc. Try finding that first on your motherboard. They're these little pins that stick out at you and usually are grouped together.

the bottom right of the mobo should have little pins liek sticking out, by the hole for a screw. btw these pins will probably be on like a yellow thingy. they'll have colors.

pwr led + goes top left
pwr led - goes right beside that
power switch will have a two hole female connecter, that goes right beside the pwr led -
the speaker one goes in the other yellow one right beside that yellow base thingy and its going to go on the top 4 pins.

i cant see what the other 2 connecters are, but they are going to go right below the power led's and the power switch connectors. btw this is how my mobo is hooked up, i dunno if thats how urs should plug in. if u have the manual to ur mobo you'll find out how in there

the best way to figure it out is trial and error, just plug the pw switch in one set of pins and keep going thrugh tryin the same thing with the reset, power led and hdd led

I have tried both (Trial and error and looking at my manual), trial and error has not worked and my manual is a piece of crap. So thin it doesn't explain anything.
