An at case doesnt have the extra ports than an atx case has, take for instance an atx motherboard has printer port, comp port, usb and ps2 ports near the top left side, an at motherboard only has an at keyboard connector, all the other things are put in an empty isa/pci slot

Here is a picture of an AT motherboard note top right the keyboard port and the white strip behind that is a 1 row set of pins for the power as the switch is in the power supply and not on the motherboard

And This is an ATX motherboard you can see the 20pin atx power connector, because the motherboard has an electronic switch to control the power.

Im building a computer in school and the speaker that runs during POST connector but i have no ihad (nor my teacher) as to where it goes on my asus M68MT-S2P diagrams or pictures would help . thanks

Hi there,


Sir you posted a ASUS M68MT-S2P, there is no such model, the image above is a Gigabyte M68MT-S2P. all you have to do is plug your system speaker and follow the polarity.
The system reports system startup status by issuing a beep code. One single short beep will be heard if no problem is detected at system startup. If a problem is detected, the BIOS may issue beeps in different patterns to indicate the problem.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Ensure Your Case Works with the Motherboard

The<b> motherboard</b> is an essential component of the system, but they are also manufactured in different sizes. Accordingly, it is important that you check to make sure it fits in the desired action. The good news is that all <b>motherboards</b> and cases are identified by a "<b>shape factor</b>" which is the manufacturer's sizing standards. The form factor is the most common ATX If your <b>motherboard</b> is an ATX, which tends to offer the best flexibility to choose a desktop case. After that, you will have much larger PC cases from which to choose, as most are ATX.<br />

The CoolerMaster CAC-T05-UW computer case is a Mid-Tower computer case.

It supports (Uses) power supply's that are the ATX form factor.

[Motherboards dimensions are stated as Form Factor. What Form Factor is the motherboard.
The term Form Factor is used erroneously for Power Supply's, and computer cases, ]

The ATX form factor dimensions for a Power Supply is approximately,
A) 6 inches Wide. { Width} (15.24 Centimeters)
B) 5.5 inches Long {Length} (13.97 Centimeters)
C) 3.5 inches Tall {Height} ( 8.89 Centimeters)

The ATX form factor for a power supply, also denotes what power cables are used.

A) One 20 or 24-pin ATX main power cable.
(Power supply's sold now, have an ATX main power cable that can be used as a 20-pin, or a 24-pin. You simply use, or do not use the four extra pins,

B) One 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

C) At least one SATA power cable. Better power supply's have two, or more,

D) Two, or more 4-pin standard Peripheral power cables. Better power supply's usually have four,
(Misnomered as 'Molex'. The name stuck just like Crescent wrench for an adjustable open-end wrench),

[Don't forget that if you need a certain power cable, and the Power Supply doesn't have it, you can use an adapter power cable on two 4-pin standard Peripheral power cables ]

E) 4-pin small Peripheral power cable. Used in the older computers for a Floppy Drive. Used now for a Card Reader,

I'm going to state that approximately 80 percent of personal computers out there use an ATX form factor power supply.

(The rest use a smaller size of power supply, or a different shape.
This was brought about so desktop computers could be made smaller.
Less space is needed for the computer tower in the room.

BAD design, computer manufacturers, and people who desire this.
Most personal computers are cooled by AIR, except for the gamer computers that may use Water, or Nitrogen, or refrigerant.
You need a Mid-Tower, or Full-Tower computer case, or you're going to have problems down the road)

ATX power supply's are sold everywhere.

The things you need to consider, besides what form factor for the Power Supply, is what Wattage, and how much Amp's will the 12 volt power rails handle.

A decent Power Supply now should have at least 500 Watts, and the 12 volt power rail/s should handle at least 24 Amps. (24A)

{Some Power Supply's are listed as having multiple 12 Volt power rails.
Check to see what Each 12 volt power rail listed, will handle in Amperage.
Add ALL 12 volt power rail Amp's up for a total.
This is what the 12 Volt power rail amperage will be.

I'll show an example in an added Comment}

How much does it cost?

Product Coolermaster Sileo 500
ATX Mid Tower Case Manufacturer Coolermaster Market Price US$70~$100

To this point Coolermaster has had a reputation for putting out cases that are either simple and utilitarian, or massive and complex. The Sileo 500 is decidedly different - it is marketed specifically as a quiet enclosure. Its name you may think is fake Italian for "silly" but it's actually Latin for "silent." Fancy, eh?

Hello, I recently purchased all new computer components, including a Diablotek EPIC ATX Mid Tower case. I have the system complete and running. At first I plugged a USB device into the front left USB...

Hi Red,

I had a similar problem on a different case though.They might have similar causes.

The front usb port circuit board was connected to the MB with a ribbon cable. The prior owner had the cable attached backwards. It worked fine, until you plugged in a USB device, instant crash.

Can't say for certain this is what is happening with you, but it is a possibility.

I'm sure you already know, pin 1 is the striped cable. On the board pin 1 has an arrow.

Best regards

I have a Ultra M923 Full Tower ATX Case ATX and the lcd screen doesn't work, is there anything i can do to fix it?

@ PaulMo..
You need to research the question and product at hand before posting a solution, Flyner1990 was referring to the LCD panel on the Ultra M923 Full tower case and not a monitor or video card.
The Ultra M923 has known issues with the front LCD panel, either they work or they dont. They are not accurate either.. Solution is either replace the case with something else or disconnect the LCD panel's sensor's and purchase another fan controller. I too own this case and love the design but having issues with the front panel as well and my fix was installing another fan controller/monitor..
