Default PC Case front panel cable problems

Hey anyone,

I have been having trouble with my new case I installed, everything was fine until I started installing the front panel pins, all of them worked apart from the power button cable, I plugged it onto the pins required, and it didn't switch on. So I reversed the cable round, no effect. After this I plugged it onto some pins labeled 'F PANEL', and powered it on, and it immediately sprung to life. After switching it off once however the button ceased to work, I then moved the cable to a different set of pins on the same group of pins, and it worked, but yet again it didn't work after shutdown.. Any suggestions? I feel like I've tried everything..

You need to look at your mobo manual to see the layout for the panel and wire it right.

This is where my motherboard tells me to plug the pins in, but to get the pc to power up, I have to plug it into a set of 6 beside it.

You should really watch this video. I ran your MB numbers and this was on the list of results.
