    Question Need to change pinout of control cable header on motherboard

    I am in the process of changing the motherboard in my PC, but the cable header for the front panel LEDs and on/off switch has the pinout different. What is the specific extraction/insertion tool I need to remove the pins and reinsert them for the proper pinout to match this board? I have found D shell extraction/insertion tools and some others, but I do not know the exact type of tool I need. Any pointers appreciated.

    I've never needed any tools to remove the individual cables from the front panel headers, if you like, a thin (hospital type) needle nose plier
    will do the job. The motherboard's schematic will also help in the switch-over.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I found a tiny jewelry screwdriver that works just fine.
