Well i had the same problem... i got a new pentium 4 board but it could not get fitted in the casing.... so what do you do is take the casing to a welder.... he will cut off a piece of metal which is resisting the mother board... The maximum loss is that 2 slots of CD ROMS will become obsolete and i think you dont need have fun

Will a mATX motherboard form factor fit into a case that has a ATX motherboard form factor?

it really depends on the compatabilty of the tower ... some towers can hold matx atx itx motherboards the way to find this out is to open the case and see if there are more ways than one to configure the motherboard stand offs most towers have a blue print of sorts etched into the metal next to the holes and it will say matx or atx or itx some are lettered like atx a-9 next to the hole or you can make a template by marking the holes from the mother board to a piece of paper and put the paper in the tower to see where the holes line up hope this helps

Hello Sir, hi, the wires on your casing are usually labeled, like in the picture below: cyberdyers_0.jpg

the power led green wire goes to the power led + and the white goes to the - . Now the HDD + goes to the HDD + the red wire, power switch can be interchange, same as the reset switch.

Computer Case ULT33180 Powers down about 4 seconds after started

Ive done something similar, I took the CMOS battery off the motherboard and put it back in after about a minute to reset the bios. Unplugged the power supply from the motherboard and flipped the power switch on the back of the power supply (on and off a few times) and plugged the power connector back onto the motherboard. I know it sounds like an odd way of fixing this problem but has worked for me.

To fix front usb and audio to the mother board

Consult the user manual for the motherboard. It should have a layout diagram showing all connections. Or go online to manufacturer's website and download the user manual there. Also, using a bright light and magnifier you may be able to read the small print on the motherboard by the connectors.

Icute to motherboard wiring

Hi, on the edge of your mother board closest to the front of the computer, you will find a double row of pins. Use a torch and if needed a magnifying glass and study these, you will find they are labeled the same as your cables from the case.
In some cases the plugs are set as a 3 space plug, if you find one of these that wont fit. just split it. If you plug the LED wire back to front, don't panic it won't hurt they just wont work. The power and reset are not pole sensetive.
Goodluck mistyman
