Im currently building a PC out of an ammo box i got from an army surplus store, but i was wondering where i can get an on/off and reset button for the motherboard. I dont have any cases laying around to strip it off so i was just wondering if anyone knew anywhere i could purchase one or a way to build one myself?

Thanks guys, PeaTear Griffen.

just buy a switch that just flicks a quick spark through the wires, or you can just attach two wires onto the mobo and just press the 2 together when ya wanna turn the comp on lol, very industial eh? lol

I dont have on and off buttons... I cut off that section of my case for better airflow...


I power it up with the keyboard. It can be set in the bios. And when I reset the CMOS I just power it up with a jumper the first time and set the keyboard power up again.

Thanks guys, all good sights. Probably gonna hit up the military style switch to keep it "militaryish" and just wire it into the motherboard.

Thanks, PeaTear Griffen

A little expensive for the DFI LP plus im goin AMD Athlon Xp because there cheap as hell for a 3000+ socket A. If i had the money the DFI would have been in the bag.
