It's the biggest connector on your power supply. You also will have either an 8 pin or 4 pin connector that attaches as well to your motherboard, that will give power to your processor.

Any chance of a pic? I've had a similar problem before with slightly different board versions. The pin block for the front panel is labelled in the manual in one place, and then moved / replaced in the next version but without the manual being changed :evil:

If it's physically not there, and there is nothing anywhere else remotely like it, the board may be damaged. Whether you could solder another pin block on would depend on how good you are at sodlering!
