Well, normally when you buy an after market motherboard, there will be documentation that will show you the layout of the front panel connecters on the motherboard. But, since it's a dell motherboard, there probably won't be any documentation.
Here I found this:
What does the connecter look like coming from the front panel of the Dell 4600 CASE. Does it look like the connecters on you're new case?
I bet it doesn't. That's because Dell uses proprietary designs in almost every aspect of their systems. Which makes it really hard to alter a dell at all.
You could try connecting various connectors to various pins. But if what I said above is true. It could be impossible.
It doesn't look good seeing as that layout says, "Front Panel I/O Connector" Hence 1 connector. You're case I can almost say 99.9% has more then 1. Reset, Power LED, HDD LED, audio... etc..
