    And it's clear to see the incorrect 3-wire depiction of the Reset Button connection. There is also the unexplained duplication of the Power LED pins. Maybe there are two Power LED plugs - one with adjacent pins; the other with a skipped pin. The header allows for either configuration (if the pins really are duplicated). Or maybe it's another typo.

    These are things that maybe are taken in stride by a long time custom builder but they are a source of confusion to this first time builder.

    RESET + GROUND to the left of it.

    You also have to consider that the wires that attach to the FP connectors come from the case. Asus doesn't make the case. The FP connections need to accommodate whatever layout the case manufacturers use. Some cases have different features than other cases. With all the hype about LEDs now days, it's not surprising that some may have more than 1 PLED connection. I have a board with a place for a BIOS switch, if the case has one. My case doesn't. I just don't use it. There are a lot of things that are not standardized today. Your 24 pin connection from the PSU is actually a 20+4 pin. All new motherboards use 24 pin connections. The real older boards use a 20 pin connection. I guess there are still a few of the old ones around, so they make it so that it can be used on either one. The same with the ATX12V plug. It is usually 2 4 pin connections. New boards use 8 pin connections and maybe some still use a 4 pin connection, older boards did. That's why the pin is split into 2 x 4 pins to accommodate either one. Now days it is becoming more common to have 2 8 pin connections. I have 2 boards with 2 X 8 pin connections.
