Question about XION Onyx (XON-301P) ATX Case

Power on Problem!!

Ok, Here's my situation: Ive got a top of the line 680 Sli motherboard, 600 watt power supply (also by Xion) and a Xion Onyx case. Unfortunately, i'm finding that parts of the front panel arent working! Both power on buttons aren't working, and I know its not the motherboard, as the manual power on switch on the board turns it on. The reset button works fine, as do the USB ports, but the mic port and the headphone jack don't work eather. How do I fix this? The front panel seems very well if its a connection there, I have no idea how to get to it.

Re: Power on Problem!!

My two cents worth; I would suggest you actually test the power button with a multi-meter or some other continuity checker. If it truly is bad then if your case is still under warranty you should call before doing any thing else. If you start taking things apart you will wind up voiding the warranty which could get ugly later. With that many things not functioning on the front panel it would seem likely that the front panel board, connector or something else they all have in common is defective. Let us know how it turns out.

Re: Power on Problem!!

Did you plug the cables for the front devices and buttons into the motherboard at the right locations? Are the polarities correct on for your cables?

Power supply

Any 450 Watt SMPS power supply is ok. Zebronic or Mercury retails around Rs.450 to 500. No need of costlier power supply like Corsair etc.

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.

Im trying to install dell i530 into Xion II case but cant figure out how the power switch led hooks up?

All of the pins locations and settings should be available on the motherboard manual. The pins should usually be located at the very bottom. ALL of the pin's settings will be labeled underneath the pins, but often hard to see, that's why I recommend reading the manual. All of the switches and LED pins will be different on different motherboards. The USB, if you have ones that are all separate connectors, goes like this: [+5V/VCC/Power] [D+] [D-] [GND]. USB and audio will always be the same.

I have a power supply that is turning itself off immediately after switching it on it is a new motherboard as well Any ideas why ?

I think either the MB or the CPU is with problems.

Try (2 after 1 works, 3 after 2 works...):
1) only PSU+MB+CPU and Fan - works? beeps like crazy?
2) add memory - works? single beep?
3) add/connect video - any image?

All other connectors off (disks, etc) only PSU, fan and case buttons.

If you don't get past 1), go back to the store and have it tested/returned there.

Whining sound with xion 800 watt power supply.

There is a fan insine the power supply, and also a fan on the CPU. Occasionally there is also a fan on the chassis of the computer itself.

Turn on the computer, take the case off, and listen to identify the source of the noise. If it's inside the PSU, return it and get a new one.
