Oh and if there is label text on your connectors, the label side always faces to the right (referencing the image). This only matters for the LEDs, they will not light up if the polarity is wrong. For the switches, as datonyb stated, there is no polarity so it doesn't matter.

The pins boxed in red are where the power switch connects. The reset switch connects to the pins to the right and up one pin, directly under the SATA port. Beneath the power switch (in the image) is where the power LED connects and directly to the right of it is the HDD activity LED connector. There should be a gap of 1 pin between the reset switch and the HDD activity LED.

I hope that makes things clear, it is all marked on the board but it's hard to read given the black on black text.

Just to be clear here. There are two rows and five columns. Should I place the power and reset buttons cables on columns 4 and 5 respectively and NOT across pins in the same row.

to be technical

it dosnt matter on power or resets

all they do is make the circuit when pressed

the plus and minus matter on the led connectors though as they are diodes and thus wont work the wrong way round

as for which ground to use

follow the orientation of the leds already inserted eg along the row not crossing the row(it dosnt matter really but looks neater)

and the odd pin on the end a ground can be ignored

On the Asrock AB350 Gaming-ITX/ac I want to make sure that I connect the Reset and Power Button to the correct jumpers on the motherboard. The Powerbutton cable doesn't appear to have a Plus and Minus side to the cable. When connecting the cable to the motherboard, should the cable be straddled top and bottom or right and left? Same question for the Reset cable should it be connected top and bottom or right and left on the motherboard?
