Need pin configuration for asus it8 712f-a

You just named off one of the CHIPSETS on the motherboard.

An ITE IT8712f-a,

"The ITE IT8712F-A chip is used to monitor: CPU and memory voltage, +3.3 and +12 V; rpm of two fans; CPU temperature (by the built-in CPU sensor) and motherboard temperature (by the on-board sensor)"

Now what is the motherboard manufacturer name (Asus?), and model number?

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.
(Power On switch, Power On LED, HarDDrive LED, Reset switch)

Do you need a Front Panel header pinout?

Post back in a Comment.

These general instructions are intended to supplement or simplify some of the information in your motherboard manual Step 1 Make sure to read the manual that came with the motherboard - instructions differ for each one.
  • Step 2 Ground yourself with any professional grounding equipment you have. Otherwise, ground yourself by touching the computer power supply.
  • Step 3 Place motherboard on its anti-static bag.
  • Step 4 Configure motherboard: Set jumpers or DIP switches for CPU, voltage(s), and bus speed, if necessary. If your motherboard is configured by software, you will need to configure it after you complete the physical installation.
  • Step 5 Position motherboard in case. Line up holes in board with holes in case.
  • Step 6 Insert spacers, plastic stand-offs, washers and screws, as necessary. Tighten screws carefully, but securely.
  • Step 7 Make sure motherboard is not touching metal anywhere.
  • Step 8 Make sure slots and connectors fit into openings on back of case.
  • Step 9 Connect motherboard to power supply.
  • Step 10 Connect CPU fan, if you have one, to power supply.
  • Step 11 Connect reset and power switches to power supply.
  • Step 12 Connect LED indicators to power supply.
  • Step 13 Connect case speaker to motherboard.
  • Step 14 Check all connections.
  • Step 15 Test motherboard (and configure in CMOS if necessary) before installing other components of computer system.
    • If possible, do installation in an uncarpeted area.
    • Be careful not to touch any chips. Handle board by its edges. Static damage (and even oil damage) may cause a failure months after the incident.
    • If you do not understand these instructions or you lack good manual dexterity, have a qualified technician install the motherboard for you

    How to configure the front panel

    If you're talking software then you will need to download and/or install the Chipset drivers from your install disk or online in order to get that stuff working. If you're talking how to connect the wires into the motherboard. You have to take a look at the words on the little wires and match them with the pins on your motherboard...They are often just a USB connection. just look at the configuration of holes for the connection and match them to any open USB set of pins on the motherboard with the exact same configuration. Contact me for more info if this sounds confusing.

    what kind of hard drive??? IDE or SATA
    the newer machine do not need hard drive configuration. but not the old one.
    configure the old hard drive to "master" and the new hard drive to "Slave".
    go into BOIS and make sure both hard drives are being detected by the machine.
