    I agree with byteguy, most DELL's (esp GX270's) have a connector that goes from the front panel to the mobo. If you are trying to use this DELL mobo in another computer I would remove the front panel connector from the old DELL machine and then trace the wires to where they go and then slowly remove them and try them in your new computer.

    FYI, I've never seen a Dell of this model without a plastic plug with all the wires in it. Simple matter to plug it into the motherboard.
    Is yours different?

Hi ,, i have just fitted a intel d845gvsrb in my pc but i am not sure where the tower speaker wire , reset sw , power sw , power led , h h d led and the black single one go`s can you please help me ..


The Picture below shows you the locations of the places to put those wires are in relation to your motherboard. In yellow is the power switch and such. and the audio connection is in red.

The Pin layout for the power and other connector are as follows:
avatar23454_10.jpg

the layout for the audio header is as follows: avatar23454_8.jpg

To install the cable that connects a front panel audio solution to the front panel audio header, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Turn off the computer and disconnect the AC power cord.
  2. Locate the front panel audio header (J8A1).
  3. Remove the three jumpers from the header (this disables the back panel audio connectors).
  4. Install a correctly keyed and shielded front panel audio cable.
  5. Connect the audio cable to the front panel audio solution.

To restore back panel operations follow these steps:
1. Remove the front panel audio cable. 2. Install a jumper on pins 5-6 (rear R channel). 3. Install a jumper on pins 9-10 (rear L channel). 4. Install a jumper on pins 1-2 (mic). 5. Replace the cover.

Hi, im trying to connect motherboard intel D865GVHZ front panel to connection J9H3, i need a diagram for it. Thank you for your help


I may be confused with your problem you posted mar13974.
I thought Jumper J9H3 was for the Front Chassis Fan.
By your post, it leads me to believe you want the pin assignments for the Front Panel header on the mobo.

At any rate let's go to Intel Product Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual, for the Intel D865GVHZ desktop mobo,
(MOtherBOard),

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865gvhz/sb/CS-010872.htm

Click on the blue file name - D865GVHZ_ProductGuide01_English.pdf

After you click you may not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds. The file is downloading in the background.
(Took 16 seconds for me just now with a medium speed DSL connection)

Page 33 shows the location of the Front Panel header on the motherboard.
(C)
Page 34 details the pin assignments

Page 36 shows the Front Chassis Fan header location (Chassis front fan)
3-pin header, doesn't state the pin assignments.
With a 3-wire fan cable,
A) 1 wire is the Power wire. Generally Red
B) 1 wire is the Ground wire. Generally Black
C) 1 wire is the speed sensor wire. Reads how fast the fan is spinning in Revolutions Per Minute
(RPM) Generally Blue, but it's up to the individual manufacturer.

If the above isn't what you had in mind, please state in a Comment.
Regards,
joecoolvette

Proper pin numbers to install inserts in a Dell SATA 34 pin GX270 motherboard


Hi there.
Get a strong flashlight and a magnifying glass (if you have one). On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW. On some boards there are no colours but the markings are the same, so take a good close look.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>

Proper pin numbers to install inserts in a Dell SATA 34 pin GX270 motherboard


why do you need the IDE cable pin out if you are using SATA?
they are diiferent and not interchangeable. if you want to use IDE pin out for SATA, then you need to get a adapter from IDE to SATA.

HDD and reset light on intel p4 82845 mother board


Hi pc_ski,
Download the manual for your board, click on this PDF link.
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GLLY/ADLY_English.pdf

See page 64 first for the layout of the front panel header. The block you need to refer to is letter C. Here you'll see where pin one is located at.
Go to page 65. Table 32 shows the pin assignments for the front panel header. Pin-1 & pin-2 is for the HDD & pin-7 & pin-8 for reset switch.

Have more questions? Post here.
Good luck pc_ski!

Hi kjstenny, not sure where you saw the board E210882. This is not a valid Intel model number. The Intel D865GLC is a valid model number & you can download the manual for this at the link below:
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865glc/BFLC_English.pdf
Main Intel link for D865GLC:
http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D865GLC/LC_manual.htm
MB layout page 14 & 15. Than see page 13 block D, J9J1 Front panel pins. Page 43 for jumper connections.

Intel D865PCD (Matched). Front panel, page 34 & 35. Download manual at this link:
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d865pcd/sb/cdenglish.pdf
Main link: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=1671&lang=eng

Intel D865PCK - (No Match). (Or no longer listed).
D865PE50 - (No Match). (Or no longer listed).

The most common wire color for each 2-pin connector will be negative, including the color black.

Good luck kjstenny!

Hi sivaprasanna,
Do you still have your manual? If so turn to page 72 for location.
For a close look at the motherboard front panel led to MB pins look at these two pics.
Location of front panel connections;

f111d01.jpg
Item " A " is the front panel MB pins.

Pic two is the layout for each front panel connection;

4db3155.jpg
The power on jumper uses pins 7 & 8.
Pin 7 is positive & pin 8 is negative.

Good luck sivaprasanna!
