    Since the hard disk drive LED and your case LED connector aren't matching up (I assume), you could take the connector apart and rewire it so it does.

    As to the USB ports, you can attach the ones from your case as shown in the attatched file. Because of yet another discrepancy between mobo manufacturers and case manufacturers, these probably have different labels, too. USB+5V is the same as VCC. It doesn't matter which side you connect those to. "USB_P5-" and "USBP6-" is the same as "Data0-" and "Data1-". Same thing goes for positive. Connect two grounds (doesn't matter which) and leave "NC" open.

    On the strip of pins where everything else form the case connects. It's in the manual.

    hey thanks i got it, but about the usb, in the manual it shows where to plug in but it labels them differently as what the plugs are labeled. The plugs are labeled as DATA 1/2 Ground 1/2 VOC 1/2 and something else i can't rember, but the manual shows to plug them in under different things according to voltage, anyone help me on this?

    Al there should be to USB is data, voltage, and ground.

    VOC sounds like it might be overcurrent protection, but I'm not sure. The way your motherboard is set up, you wouldn't need to plug an overcurrent cable in.
