Question about MSI KT3 Ultra Motherboard
Need to know how to connect up my KT3 Ultra MS-6380E motherboard. I have connected power cables according to board diagram, but nothing happens when turn power on. I have attached PSU cable bunch to socket on board, but seem to be having problems getting the LED / power SW / etc cables to connect to right pins.
I downloaded the PDF Motherboard Manual for the MSI MS-6380E Version 1.0, just now.
Let's take a look at that JFP1 header.
This view is looking at the JFP1 header, sitting at the bottom right of the motherboard, TO THE LEFT of the JFP2 header. The JFP2 header is at the very bottom right hand corner. The JFP1 header is just to the left of it. The processor is to the Top/Middle.
Looking at the pins going across the top of the JFP1 header, they are as follows,
2, 4, 6, 8, and there is no 10. There is no pin for 10.
Looking at the pins going across the bottom, they are as follows,
1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.
Pins 6 & 8 are for the Power On switch.
Pins 2 & 4 are for the Power On light, (LED light)
Pins 1 & 3 are for the HarDDrive activity light.
Pins 5 & 7 are used for a Reset switch. (IF, you have one)

On this page click on ->Download <- to the right of
File: 6380ev1.0.exe Version: - - Release Date: - -
When you do a small window will come up. Click on the empty circle to the left of -> Save.
This file will be saved either directly to your deswktop screen, or your My Documents folder. I don't know how you have your downloads set up to be saved. I save them to my My Documents folder.
Once you see this file, double-click on it. It's a WinRar file. There will be a Microsoft 'Squawk Box' that comes up. "Warning this publisher could not be verified, ya-da, ya-da"
Ignore it! Click on -> Run
Now the WinRAR extraction archive will come up.
Click on Run.
Now go to the PDF file and double-click on it.
There's your Motherboard Manual.
