Tiny CD conection cord probe suposed to fit positiveto foot 25 negative foot 26

ATRIX Game Case A 900 1 The case is a lovely case,fittings and other probes are no bother. But this one is driving me nuts. The picture I have uploaded is the CD Connection Cord attached to the front panel multifunctional Display, There are 2 pins to fit into the IDE cable feet which goes to "CD Rom feet 25 (Positive) and 26 ( Negative)" The picture I have uploaded also has the temperature probes, but I have no problem with them. The problem is how to get the pins into the IDE Lead feet, where it says in foot 25 and 26. Yes I know where pins 25 and 26 are. But I cannot for the life of me fathom out how to place this connection. I have never seen one like this before, and I have been building computers for about 10 year. The Instructions are not very good,they point to the 40 Ribbon lead holes, but where the lead would already have the pins from the actual drive already in there. How can the pins on this probe type thing be fitted when the ribon cable is attached to the drive? DOH! It driving me up the wall. thanks Joyce

Actually the pins go on the Slave connector (the connector in the middle of the IDE cable) while the CD/DVD is connector to the Master connector which is on the end.

Known weak points & tips for the Antec P18x series

The Antec P180, P182 and P183 are great quality cases, but they have some minor issues, which are either easily fixed or covered by the great Antec warranty. Below are some pointers and tips:

- The plastic pins of the side-plastic on the front-door are a little weak and can break, leaving the door "hanging" when opened. To fix this, remove the door from the case and carefully screw a tiny screw in place to "replace" the broken plastic pin (at the exact location the plastic pin was originally). Do it from the inside out, until the screw is like 3 or 4mm outside the panel and then put the door back in. You might want to make the screw-top a little blunt first too.

- The (plastic) L-hooks on the side-panels are also known the break, so be very careful when taking the panel of or setting it back. There's no easy fix for a broken hook, but luckily a broken hook hardly effects the fit.

- A good airflow is essential to efficient cooling of the computer components. The best setup in this case is to use 2 intake fans at the front (1 directly behind the airfilter at the front and 1 in the bottom compartment in front of the power supply) and 2 exhaust fans at the back and top. This will result in fresh, cold air sucked into the case at the front and the warm air pushed outside the case at the back. There are no special 'intake' or 'exhaust' fans, it's just down to how you fit the fans. Most fans have an arrow on 1 of their sides indicating the direction of the airflow.

- As with any computer case, you still need to "clean" the inside of the case every X months, since dust will always get in, with or without any filter. When there's too much dust inside the case it will hinder airflow, causing the temperature to rise, which causes fans to blow harder and make more noise. In the end it could jam/clutter soo much that your computer becomes "instable" or slow due too overheating. Don't use a vacuum-cleaner (due to static electricity which can damage the PC electronics), but just blow it out or use some canned-air or dry toiletpaper. Mind your eyes though !

This is resurrected from September 2013.

Motherboards from proprietary makes like Dell, Gateway, or what ever are specially made and will only fit their own cases. This is done on purpose so that you have to buy motherboards from them. If you look at the back of the case there are always funny cut outs, or the boards are an odd length.

Buy the case and buy off the shelf motherboards like Asus.

I need a motherboard that will fit in a Raidmax ATX1072BP Mid Tower ATX Computer Case!

Most desktop computer cases have a range of standard mount holes, standard offs.
I suggest you select a motherboard that suits your requirements.
To be sure that the motherboard will fit your case, take the motherboard mount base with you to the computer shop and place the motherboard of your choice on the base to see if the mounting holes line up.
You may need to upgrade the switch mode power supply to a higher power unit if the total power requirements is near the maximum the existing unit can deliver.

Is there any way that i can replace my tower case on my Compaq Presario sr1520nx?

Compaq tends to be rather proprietary in their designs, usually a Compaq motherboard will only fit in a Compaq case, a Compaq power supply will only fit a Compaq case. That said there are exceptions such as hard drives, memory, etc.. If your present case is damaged you would do best to find another of the same model that isn't working and transfer your components.

The Advnet case you have is a micro ATX (mATX) case. I would suggest that you purchase an inexpensive ATX size case. You'll have more room to work and the potential for better air flow for cooling.

Atrix 9006-C4 Black Midi Case 520W fitting for lcd display

There will be "headers" on the motherboard for some case fans. Look for 2/3 pin connections on the board marked "sysfn" or something similar. Any other fans you will have to fit to a spare Molex power connector from the power supply ... you can buy 2 or 3 way "splitter" cables to give you more power connections from one Molex for this purpose. BTW make sure you connect the cpu fan to the "cpu fn" header !!!!! That one is rather important :-P

Well i had the same problem... i got a new pentium 4 board but it could not get fitted in the casing.... so what do you do is take the casing to a welder.... he will cut off a piece of metal which is resisting the mother board... The maximum loss is that 2 slots of CD ROMS will become obsolete and i think you dont need have fun
