Question about Sunbeam Transformer (ICTRBA) ATX Full Tower Case

Expasion slots don't line up with motherboard card slots

I cannot get my motherboard card slots, ASUS P5N32-E SLI, to match up with the expansion slots on the back of my new the Sunbeam Transformer case. It looks almost like I might have to drill additional holes. Help!

    Micromaster,



    Thanks for the comment. The problem is with the case slots which are riveted in. My motherboard screws into the case alright but the card slots then don't align with the case slots.

When you buy Motherboard there's a back plate included in the box, you don't have to drill the plate.

If the palte not included in the box you can buy it also where you purchased your Mobo.

What video adapter card is compatible with Seagate ST3400620AS HDD


There are many things you need to consider before purchasing a new graphics card.
First you need to know what type of graphic card is compatible with your motherboard and how much space you have inside of the PC tower.

Since newer cards use a lot of power, it is also important to check your PCs power supply.
The simplest way to find out what type of graphic card is compatible to your motherboard is by looking at the expansion slot and power specifications in the motherboards manual.

Locate your motherboard's manual.
If you don't have one then open up your web browser and enter your motherboard or PC's manufacturer's website.


Go to the support page on the manufacturer's website and enter your motherboard's model number.


Download the motherboard's manual from the support page.
Look for the "expansion slot" section in the manual to check the motherboards expansion slot specifications.

If your motherboard uses a AGP expansion slot then write down the version (1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), and the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x).

If your motherboard uses a PCI Express expansion slot then write down the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16).


Look for the "Power Supply" specifications in the manual and write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V,5V or 12V).

to find out information on your motherboard. Click the "Mainboard Information" icon, then write down the information next to "Manufacturer" and "Model."

Navigate to the motherboard manufacturer's website.
If you are not sure of the website's URL, enter the manufacturer's name into a search engine to find the company's website.


Go to the support page and enter your motherboard's model.
Download the motherboard's manual or review the specifications.


Search the manual or specifications for "Expansion slot," "AGP" or "PCI Express."
If the expansion slot uses AGP, note the version (AGP comes in 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), as well as the bandwidth (1x, 2x, 4x or 8x).

If the expansion slot uses PCI Express, note the amount of lanes (x1, x4, x8 or x16).
Search the manual or specifications for "Power," "PSU" or "Power Supply."

Write down the power supply's voltage (3.3V, 5V or 12V) and amp rating (designated by "A").
Not all manufacturers list the amp rating in their documentation, so you may need to contact the manufacturer for more assistance.


Compare the graphics card you want to buy to the motherboard's expansion slot.
AGP cards won't work in motherboards using PCI Express, and vice versa.


Similarly, AGP 3.0 cards won't work in motherboards using AGP 1.0. A PCI Express x8 card will not fit in a PCI Express x1 slot.

Check the voltage and amperage of the video card to the voltage and amperage on your motherboard.


A video card that requires a higher amp rating requires a powerful PSU.

Local disk (D:) offline can you help


That means that the file manager is not reading your card for whatever reason. Firstly, the card may be missing. secondly the card connectors may be dirty with oily finger prints. Thirdly the card may be bad. Fourthly the card slot connections may be faulty. Check all these and if still the card is not read then show to a repairer.

Front panel audio connection to asus pk5 se mobo


Hi Tracybow,

The Front Panel Audio connection should have a couple of wires to plug in into your MotherBoard. Usually, the connectors are named and all you need to know is the exact location in your MotherBoard.
I would suggest you to visit your MotherBoard manufacturer and download the manual for your MoBo. You will find in the manual a diagram of the MotherBoard which shows the location for those wires.

Hope this helps.

Best regards
Eduardo

Asus vento 3600


Installation and assembly Now it was time to get to grips with the Asus Vento 3600 for real. We fished out a test motherboard and some drives and got to work installing the components into the ASUS case.
The side panel ships secured by a single screw which needs to be removed before you can use the side swivel handle to open the case. Once this was removed, turning the handle clockwise unlatches the side panel, allowing it to be pulled away. The swivel handle operates very smoothly and neatly, and adds immeasurably to the whole space-age feel of the case. The spacious interior allows plenty of room for all ATX motherboards. Thanks to the extra height of the case, the top two 5.25 inch external drive bays are above the plane of the motherboard, so even if you have a full size board, you can mount at least two CD drives without worrying about them interfering with the board.
The backplane of the case sports built-in risers for most ATX motherboards, though additional risers are included if your board needs more or different connections. Installing the motherboard was straightforward as we'd expected
One thing we noticed and appreciated at this point was the way that ASUS had rounded most of the steel edges inside the case. Having worked in computer stores, I appreciate any attempt to protect our tender hands from the pain of sharp steel 'case cuts'.
The expansion slot covers are secured by green plastic locking tabs which need to be levered open and removed from the case. The metal covers can then be easily removed and PCI, AGP or PCI Express cards installed. The tabs can then be returned to their places, locking the expansion cards in place.
