Hi, I am building a PC and I don't know where the pin sockets for the front panel go. Here's a diagram of the pin configuration. (The motherboard is a ECS P61WF)

They will only go in one slot. Look at the pins on the board and compare it with the pins on the plug. If it fits, plug it in. If you do find more than one then look on the board to see if it says what the pins do.

Failing that, go onto google and google the motherboard number and you should find a manual on the manufacturers site.

All of the pins are the same. There is no differences between any of them.

Easiest thing to do is to google for your motherboard, or, risk plugging it into the sockets and seeing if it works (for which I accept no liability if you choose to do so).

Hold on, I can tell you some of them...

PWRSW is the power switch: polarity doesn't matter
RSTSW is the reset switch: polarity doesn't matter
IR-PWR is infrared power: polarity will matter
IRRX is infrared receive: polarity will matter
IRTX is infrared transmit: polarity will matter
HDDLED is hard disk light: polarity will matter but won't damage if incorrect (it just won't work)
SUSLED is probably the power light: polarity will matter but won't damage if incorrect (it just won't work)

Not sure what CHS or SLPSW is.

The leads/plugs will say on them the same and its just a case of plugging them in.

Usually horizontal. eg in line with the bottom of the case, but I suppose it depends how your case is. If you can take a picture of it I could help you with that.

SLPSW is the Sleep switch (but I've yet to see a case that has one).
