Dell gx260 front panel

I have a mainboard out of GX260. I do not have a dell case though...this is where it gets tricky. The front panel (power led, hdd led, Power Button) does not connect to a generic case. Has anyone found the pinout for this mainboard? I don't want to spend any money on this system.

    Same. I found a dell optiplex gx260 with all of the internal components, but missing the front panel. I need the pinout for this front panel connector so that I can power up the system and see what kind of shape it's in.

Optiplex gx820 can i connect 300 watt power supply


You listed GX820 and GX260.

I am assuming you meant the GX260.

There are three varieties of the Gx260.

1) The SFF (Small Form Factor) power supplies can be replaced, but I know of no upgrades for these.

2) For the SDT (Small Desk Top), you can get up to a 270 (best I have seen).

Example of where to get one.

For the Mini Tower, here is an example of a 400W replacement. There may be others for this model.

I have a GX280 Mini Tower and recently upgraded my PSU to one very similar to the one above.

Will a dell gx280 motherboard fit into a gx260 (dell) case?


If it is a slim gx260 case, it might not. If it is the wide case, it will, but the two motherboards have different power supplies. You will need to use a gx280 power supply to power it on. However, you can use a gx270 motherboard in a gx260 case without changing the power supply.


Hope this helps!

Dell optiplex gx260 mother board


It would be easier to order the cable and front panel board assy as one. easy on ebay.
I have worked on them for years and never bothered to trace them out. and dell doesn't post the pinout anywhere.
If you can't find one I can get it for you cheap.
