Alienware x51 r2 Front Panel Connectors on Motherboard

I had to disconnect the front panel connections from Alienware X51 R2 motherboard for a moment while I worked on a graphics card (the connectors I'm talking about are for the power switch, reset switch, HD light and + - light) and i forgot what order they go in to put them back.

If you are looking at it like this (with the X being the one pin that is not there by design) anyone know how the plugs are supposed to go back in?

I've looked everywhere and found only a few pictures that were not correct. Was looking for an exact answer.

Sure thing, it's from the Alienware X51 R2 motherboard: Here are the inputs without any connections on them.

Tip Of The Day.
Always a few pictures of your rig before & during working on it
thereby creating your own reassembly map.
