urgent question regarding running caseless

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i have a 9800GX2 alongside my GTX 470,so it blocks the case power header :/

i was told i can short the header with a screwdriver but this isnt possible with the GX2 in it.


so, i was told that i can just twist alumium wire around the power header and touch that together when i want to start it, and that would work better


so the QUESTION IS...will this hurt anything or will it be fine?


question #2 can i use copper wire instead?

Same here! I just did a Frankenstein build and i turn it on using a screwdriver if not u can do the trick with the copper/aluminum cables and put them together when u want to turn the system on and NO it doesn't hurt anything at all because it's the same thing the case does.. only difference is that u're doing it manually

find the power button cables and hook up a wire to all the pins and when u feel like starting it up, put all the cables together(i believe)

This.

My Clemens techbench came with a power button thankfully, if you goto your local PC bits and bobs shop they should have a 2Pin > push button, which you can just put on the 2 power headers as you would, then when you press the button, PC starts, you can use anything to bridge the 2 pins, but not anything silly like wood or cake, obviously.

Does one of these work for you?


Or, get a cable that does everything, including HDD usage, Power LED (see pic 1 below)

Or, improvise yourself. Mine are shown in pic 2 and pic 3 (showing the System Speaker in the upper right hand corner)

And, a crucial step for you is to physically modify that 'black insert' (eg cutting it shorter if necessary to fit under the 9800GX2)
