I posted a somewhat general question earlier on and I have since done some research and I have everything in my system connected and running just fine now except for the MI/0 board which consequently powers the card reader, case fans and LED lights.
My issue is that I disconnected everything from the I/0 board while I was cleaning it before the upgrade. Stupidly, I thought that it would all fit back into place easily or that I would just remember the layout somehow. I don't... I have the front panel USB, audio and power button working but there are not enough connectors on my new board for the firewire (I never use it and I have another one in the back so I don't care). However, even though I have the MI/0 board connected via USB to the motherboard it doesn't seem to be recieving power at all and as such the fans don't spin up, the reader doesn't read and the lights don't light. I can't remember if I need to plug in a 4 pin output from my PSU into one of the 4 pin connectors on the MI/0 board or not. I know that I can but I also know that just because it fits doesn't mean that it will be functional or safe and the last thing that I want to do is cause damage to my new system. I can run everything else just fine but I miss these features so if anyone can lend some wisdom here I would be very grateful.

You need to connect a 4-pin molex power connector to the MIO board. The FireWire/1394 cable has to be plugged to the innermost socket (right behind the FireWire port).
