Mothboard cable plug in - where does this go?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN.

So I just bought a HAF X case. But it doesn't start up. So I thought I may plugged my case cables wrong in. It's not my PSU cables I'm sure of, as I done that correct before. It got red LED light on that battery as well as the lightning symbol on the front of the case. And bit unsure what this means.

Problem is that all guides says "read your manual" - but I got a Dell motherboard, so I don't have and of course Dell don't have such things on their stupid webiste.

Isn't there some general rule for where things go in? It got these 3 which says "F_USB1, 2 and 3" and 1 "f_audio". And the problem is that the HAF case got all these 2 pin connecters where my old Dell case just had 3 5 pins or so.

Thanks in advance.

Dell uses proprietary PSUs and Motherboards that only go together. You cannot use a vanilla PSU with a Dell mobo.

Yes. The problem you are having (my best guess), is that the HAF X case has standard ATX style power and LED connections. Which you will find on any standard mATX / ATX motherboard. Your Dell motherboard, LIKELY uses a proprietary front panel connection. As such, it will likely only power on, with the Dell case.

You can of course, find your power switch pins manually somehow, and plug the proper connection into it. All you NEED is the power switch to be connected. And those pins should still be right next to each other, so the HAF X connections should work on it.

But a good 775 board would be a nice improvement. You could look for the Gigabyte UD3 P45 board. That's an insanely good 775 board. Or the Asus P5Q or P5Q Pro P45 boards are also great.

Well you either need a Dell PSU or a different motherboard AFAIK. What motherboard is it? Is it current or an older one?

Thanks mate. Will try to figure out. Just found some 2-pin connecters below hidden blue stuff (you're going to hell - Dell), my MB thread is here http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...48-vs-p45.html

It use DDR2, so bit old one. The PC was made 20th of August, 2009. If you're lucky to find info on model, it's the one in my signature rig

Almost all the Dell motherboards I have re-used in PC upgrades and case transfers have PDF's on Dell's support site. Their boards are made by AsRock, Asus, and so on.

You should be able to find the model number on the board and do a Goggle search to find specifications. Sometimes, I had to guess on where each pin went and a lot of the time I was only able to get power, reset, and HD LED hooked up.

Can you give me the model number and maybe I can find something to help you out.

Time for a new board and psu, while your at it upgrade the cpu also and get some DDR3 ram with the new board. your case will not work with a dell mobo since they are proprietary.

Ye...also thought of, but I only got the money for half of it. And almost just bought my PSU, like 2 and a half month ago lol. And what is actually wrong with my PSU? It got plenty of connectors, unleash I want to go like triple 5770s - and I won't even run 2, most likely.
