    With my short, stubby fingers, I always have such a difficult time plugging those dang front panel connectors (power switch, power LED, hard drive LED, etc.) into my motherboard header when building a computer. I've noticed that several recent cases (e.g. NZXT H200i) have an all-in-one connector (see screen capture from HardwareCanucks review below) that makes this task much easier.

    It would be really nice if someone made a connector like this (to use with cases that don't have this already) that one could plug the front panel connectors into, then plug a single connector into the motherboard header. Does anyone make these?

    I saw those too. you might find something to use at an Arduino/electronics store, something like this: https://grobotronics.com/pin-header-2x5-female-2.54mm-long.html?sl=en
