HDD Light Caviar Black 1tb Jumpers?

My case has a HDD light jumper connection cable so you can tell if your hard drive is spinning.  its a tiny two pin jumper but i can’t tell from the jumper pages which i could use to bring this information to my computers front panel.

Jumpers 3 & 4 and 7&8 are not used in the spec sheets apparenlty and the 1&2 is used to enable SSC(Spread Sectrum Clocking whatever that is with OPT1 disabled)  and 4&5 is used to enable OPT1 which halfs the data transfer speed to 1.5Gbps (not sure why you’d want to slow your transferrate either???)

anyhow is one of these other combinations the HDD drive status working /spinning or not??  the HDD light you know all stock computers have them.  Dells look like a little flashing cylinder that blinks while data is being transfered.??

any help here?
