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!

Cannot find the usb plug in for the usb flash drive.


Just below the power button, there is a light grey panel with the Dell logo on it. Lift this open; careful, it does not open all the way.

You have 500mA on usb port. If you cause a short on usb connectors, this can damage the motherboard.
Disconnect usb port on motherboard (work with power unplugged ), remove all ide and floppy cable,eventually remove and put back in place bios battery and Ram.
Restart Motherboard only with 1 module Ram (bios battery back in place), CPU and Fan (ensure cpu and fan are well in place), do not plug anything else than switch on button.
If it still does not work there is a good chance you blew the Motherboard.
