HP Compaq 8100 Elite, Where is the Front Panel Connector?

I decided to build an all used parts PC and try to get bang for the buck performance. Well I have everything but the front panel done. I cannot find the front panel connector. The motherboard is powered because there is a green light on the motherboard. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hi @imjimjim21

Your question is not clear and I would like to know more

So are you still using the existing HP 8100 mainboard or another mainboard?

How about the computer casing ? are you still using the HP or new casing?

@augustine Sorry about that, I am still using the HP 8100 Elite mainboard. For casing I am using the Corsair Carbide Spec-04 Tempered Glass. I have the board in the case and I looked up the orientation of what the front panel connectors go, but I do not know where to plug them in at:(.

Hi Jimmy,

HP 8100 service manuals. The second one has a good photo. Zoom in and read the labels.

To get the above all I did was search “HP 8100 Elite manuals”

I have this?

7 by 2 minus 1 on the manual but only 5 by 2 minus 1 on the board. Any ideas.
