Sadly, the ATX Form Factor standard does not mandate specific color coding for PC wiring. So you need to do some tracing. These sound like the wires from the case's front panel, and if so, then they go to the same "header" (cluster of pin connections) as the other front panel wires. This header should be labeled to show where those wires go. However, there is no ATX FF standard for labeling either, so while yours might say PWR, the board may say +5VCC, for example - and that's assuming that's power for the front panel power button, and not the front panel power-on indicator LED. So see if you can locate the header and read the labels. If they don't match up, post back here and maybe we can sort it out.

They did come from the front of the case. I just cant figure out what set of pins on the cluster they came off of. The lables dont help.

And without us knowing what the labels do say, we cannot help. Note the LED wires don't have to be there. They are just a convenience. But if the other is for the power button, they do. You need to look carefully at the front panel header and note the labels. Post back and maybe we can help.

While in there, see if you can find any marks indicating the brand and model number of the motherboard. We might be able to find documentation if we know that.

I hope this helps. The lables are from L to R. JLPC, R769, Penable, R39, R40, R406, C327,R411,
R417, R419, C182, C184, PANEL 1.
The brand name is ECS. I believe the model is 15-K76-013102.

No. Those labels are not what we are looking for. I am talking about the header itself. Printed on the motherboard, in tiny print around the header will, or should be identifying marks for the pins. I don't mean paper labels attached to the board, but printed text on the board that labels devices and pins.

I can't find that model number - Belarc Advisor may help there, just don't paste the report as it contains information about your computer others don't need to see. Your model number did take me to this ECS motherboard that I suspect is similar.

Note on page 10, this picture: Posted Image and note the location of the front panel header in the lower right, called Panel 1. Then on page 12, you will see this illustration explaining the pin-outs: Posted Image. Use them to determine which is which.
