Connecting the case to my motherboard

I can't find a motherboard manual so I know the pin layout of my Acer Aspire AX3200-U3600A. I switched the motherboard into a new case, but can't figure out the pins to connect the power led, hdd led, reset s/w, and the +p and -p leds Comment posted on Dec 04, 2008 I know what set of pins, just don't know exactly what connects to what pins.

I was given useless information. Like.... H.D.D LED connects to pins 1-3 and the such. And which pin is number 1....

Pin arrangment is Industry Standard Architecture.....

pwr led pwr sw N/C
X X X X O

X X X X O

hdd rst N/C

translated this is top row left to right ...... power led, power switch no connection

Bottom row is left to right........ hard drive, reset, no connection

Note: not all computer cases have a reset button, also the connectors for power led and hard drive produce a light, if the light does not show, power off the pc swithc the cable rooun 180deg on the connector pins and reconnect.

I need the front panel pin layout for a Gigabyte 8S648FX-RZ motherboard. (that is the power switch, reset switch, LED etc.)


Open the link for your Gigabyte MB 8S648FX-l;
http://america.giga-byte.com/FileList/Manual/motherboard_manual_8s648fx_rz(c)_c.pdf
This is your manual. Go to page 15. You can enlarge the image if needed.
You will need Adobe Reader to view the manual. If you need Adobe it is a free download;

To view the main link for the Gigabyte 8S648FX-RZ click below;

Case front panel wire colors can be confusing. Most cases use colored wires as their +positive. White is commonly used as the -ground wire. Except when connecting an internal speaker. Black colored wire is ground.

Cheers!

Electric on motherboard


Yes. usually. Most boards have pins missing. The board layout is for all boards,not all models. That is the reason that sometimes pins are missing. You will see layouts for other items(options) missing also.  Ido not have A drawing or picture of your particular board  though.

Connecting front panel wiring to INTEL 845GRG Motherboard


Hello davideiker1, the Intel D845GRG MB manual is shared with another Intel board. (D845GBV MB). Go to this Intel site & download the D845GRG manual; http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845grg/sb/cs-008873.htm You'll need Adobe reader to view the manual. Download Adobe from this link; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
See page 9 for motherboard layout.
The front panel connectors are shown on page 68, see item C.
On page 69 is, Table 31 shows the pin assignments for the front panel header. Front Panel Header (J9G1).
Pin 1 is power for the hard disk drive led, pin-3 is negative for the hard disk drive. Wire colors coming from the case are important. Look at all of the front case wires. The common color for each 2-pin connector will be ground. In most cases the ground wire is white, except for the internal speaker. Ground for the speaker is normally black. (This motherboards speaker is built into the MB, no hook up is needed).
Pin number 2 is positive for the case power led which lights up as green. Pin 4 is negative for the power led.
The reset switch is a bit different. Pin 5 is negative & pin 9 is positive, however if your case uses a two pin connector than connect pin 7 as ground & pin 9 for positive. The On/Off switch, pin 6 is positive & pin 8 is negative.
If this manual is not what you see on the MB, please advise.

Good luck davideiker1!
