No concern for that 5v #9 pin.
Most pc cases will not require that connection.
Read page #53 in the manual for your mother board that you posted a link to.

Hi
Thanks for your reply, yes I did see page 53 but it just said 5v+, but not what it is used for .

Your case front panel buttons normally do not need a 5v connection so you can just ignore that 5v pin. I have never ran into a case that required the use of the 5v pin. Possibly someone else here knows, but I do not know of any cases that would use that 5v pin

The pwr and hdd portions are reversible, so if I had to take an educated guess it would be that if you want to use a seperate power LED that doesn't flash with HDD activity you could plug the + side of the power LED into that extra pin.
