Hey, i'm finishing up this build i'm doing using a veriton x4630g mobo i had laying around. I can't find a manual anywhere for this motherboard so i'm having some problems connecting the front panel cables. I already found the right pins for the power SW cable and i wanted to just try the other cables on random pins to see if it works. Will this damage the pc?

It could. If you had a speaker for example, it would be the equivalent of a short circuit if you plugged it to a power and ground pair.
Randomly plugging in things is not a good idea.
