Newbie query dumb question - where do i get a led/power supply cable that fits the FP Header? i've only ever seen those with seven sockets in a line - this looks like it needs five on top of four... also - where do i plug in the cd/dvd?

    okay - excellent advice. the leads are fine, but the CD/DVD is still a problem.

    My new motherboard (D915GUX) doesn't seem to have a 40-pin slot for the IDE lead, but does have several SATA slots. My CD/DVD doesn't have a SATA lead, just an IDE.

    Can you buy SATA leads? I'll try to post the schematic for the new board...

Well first about the cd/dvd. it debends on the connector, if the connector is wide with 40 pins this means its a IDE. so you would connect it with a IDE cable to a ide connector on the motherboard, and by the way there can be two devices on a IDE cable, the other has to be set to master and the other to slave.

See the small 6 pins next to the cable, there you should also see a small plastic jumper with a metal inside, you need to change this jumper so its either on slave or master, only one slave or master can be present so check the other device also.

The cd / dvd may also be a smaller SATA drive and in that case you simply need to plugit into a small exactly same type of connector on the motherboard.

about the front panel

the connector should be like this

simply attach them to the correct slots

Heres a image, note that his is not your motherboard and they might be difrent.


let me know if you need more assistance.

    looking at the picture you posted

    that would seem like a IDE connector.

    if you don't have any free ide connectors you can buy a PCI controller with extra slots like this one

    you might want to look around that may be a little overpriced.

    Should be available on ebay for pretty cheap.
