Hello. I am considering changing my computer case from the standard HP case to an Antec case. My problem is that I do not know what pins do what functions. For example, which pins go to the power button and hard drive light. My computer's motherboard is an ASUS IPIBL-LB, also known as a Benicia-GL8E. I was wondering if anyone had a spec sheet that showed what each port and pinset did.
I have googled this, and it turned up no helpful results. I also went to ASUS's website and searched for the motherboard, but ASUS's search turned up no results. I wanted to try here before I tried to contact ASUS.
Thanks to anyone who can help!

Here is a link to the "Motherboard Specifiction" page for your computer:
Open the link and scroll down towards the bottom of the page. There you will see a diagram of your motherboard; black and white and colored. It shows all of the connections with labels.
What you can do is look for the smaller connectors. These normally power the components that you mentioned. Disconnect them to see what is not working. When you know what it does, label it accordingly. This will help when you reassemble your motherboard in the new case.
Newer PSU's come with all of the connectors labeled, which helps considerably.
I hope this helps.
