Need pin configuration for asus it8 712f-a


You just named off one of the CHIPSETS on the motherboard.

An ITE IT8712f-a,

http://ixbtlabs.com/articles2/mainboard/nv41-2-a8n-sli.html

"The ITE IT8712F-A chip is used to monitor: CPU and memory voltage, +3.3 and +12 V; rpm of two fans; CPU temperature (by the built-in CPU sensor) and motherboard temperature (by the on-board sensor)"

http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/327586872/ITE_IT8712F_A_motherboard_chip_video.html


Now what is the motherboard manufacturer name (Asus?), and model number?

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.
(Power On switch, Power On LED, HarDDrive LED, Reset switch)

Do you need a Front Panel header pinout?

(The file on the Right is for BIOS information -

There is the Motherboard Manual.

The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the main wires from the Front panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

You are after the Front Panel header pinout.

The actual manual page number, and the Adobe Reader PDF file page number; DO NOT match. When I refer to a page number it is for the Adobe Reader page number box at top.
(To the right of the Down Arrow)

Go to Page 6 - Motherboard Layout

Panel_1 represents the Front Panel header.

Motherboard installed in computer case, (Processor to Top; Ram memory slots to the Right), there are EIGHT headers along the bottom of the motherboard.
Starting on the LEFT side going towards the Right; the Front Panel header is the 7th header.

(Or 2nd from the Right)

Two rows of contact pins.
Go to Page 15 - Detail Settings - PANEL1: Front Panel header

[Click on the Zoom In icon ( + ) at the Top of the Adobe Reader, to increase the view size.
Use the Zoom Out icon ( - ) to decrease the view size ]

Starting on the LEFT side going towards the Right; TOP row,
Pins 9, 10, NO pin 11, pins 12, 13, 14, 15, and 16.

Starting on the LEFT side going towards the Right; Bottom row,
Pins 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8.
(It is an 8. Whoever printed it out must have been on crack that day)

TOP row;
A) Pins 9 and 10 are N/C. Not Connected

B) There is NO pin 11.

C) Pins 12, 13, and 14 are for the Power On LED.
(Light Emitting Diode, so I will not be stating -> Light. It IS a light)

This is for a Power On LED that has THREE wires.
Dual color Power On LED.
Goes back to the day when there was Turbo, and Normal.

(Usually a Green LED, and a Yellow LED.
Green for Turbo mode, Yellow for Normal mode.
Bunch of cr@p folks!
The Turbo mode was the NORMAL mode. The Normal mode, is the computer is actually slowed down! lol! )

If you have a Power On LED with 2 wires, connect the Positive ( + ) wire to Pin 13, and the Negative ( - ) wire to Pin 14.

(I BELIEVE that's right. If not connect the Positive [ + ] wire to Pin 12, and the Negative [ - ] wire to Pin 14 )

D) Pins 15 and 16 are for the Power On switch. (Power On button)

E) Pins 1 through 4 are for an internal speaker. (Or 'buzzer')
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire, Pin 4 is for the Negative ( - ) wire.

F) Pins 5 and 6 are for the HarDDrive activity LED.
Pin 5 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the HDD LED is dim when the harddrive is active, switch the wires around.

G) Pins 7 and 8 are for a Reset switch, IF a Reset switch is used.
(I just press the CTRL, ALT, and DELete keys, AT THE SAME time, to restart the computer)

Now you know where the individual wires connect.

Remove the Front Panel. If I knew what old computer case it was, I MAY be able to guide you in removing it.
Most of the time there are 3 TABS coming from the Front Panel, on the open computer case side.

Look inside the open computer case, and at the inside/front near the opening of the computer case.
One tab towards the Top, one towards the Middle, and the last tab towards the Bottom.

The Tabs are plastic, and part of the plastic Front Panel. They go through small rectangular slots, in the metal framework of the computer case.
They have a hooked end on one side.

The Tabs need to be either pressed to the INSIDE, to bring the hooked end to the Middle of the slot, or pressed to the OUTSIDE.

When the hooked end is in the middle, of the slot in the metal framework of the computer case, then the Front Panel can start to be removed.

Start with the Bottom tab. Ease it over so the hooked end is in the middle, of the metal framework metal slot. Ease out on the bottom of the Front Panel, and hold it.
Then ease the hooked end of the Middle tab over.

The Front Panel should start to come off, and you should be able to let go of the bottom, of the Front Panel.

When the Top tab is eased over, the Front Panel will either swing to the opposite side, or start coming straight off.

Look at the wires going to the Front Panel.
You should be able to determine which wires go to the Harddrive activity LED.

There's two wires.

Now look at the wires going to the Power On LED.
The wires usually look as though they go right to that LED.
From there it is just a process of elimination, and you know the last pair of twisted wires go to the Power On switch.

It would be nice to have an inexpensive multimeter, right about now.
They run about $5 to $12. Available at a multitude of stores.
An auto parts store is just one example.
I have seen them on checkout aisle racks, at major discount stores, too.

Multimeter is set to OHM's. (1K)
You check the wires that you think are the Power On switch wires.
If you have the right ones, the reading on the multimeter will 'blip'.

(The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.
That is why the reading blips, and does not stay on)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How to connect power to the front panel


Power to the Front Panel?

A) The plastic front of your computer is the Front Panel

B) The area of pins sticking up on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel go to, is the Front Panel header.

I believe what you are requesting is the Front Panel header pinout.

AsRock Support > AsRock 775i65GV Motherboard > Main Support Page,

http://www.asrock.com/MB/overview.asp?Model=775i65GV

Go to the headings on the upper left side.
Products, Motherboard Series, 775i65GV, Overview and Specifications, and so on. Click on - Manual

On the next page go across from the heading - User Manual, and click on - Click Here, under the country nearest yours.

Disregard if you are aware;
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.

At the top of the PDF file is the page number box. It is to the right of the Down Arrow.
You can use the Down Arrow to arrive at the page you want, or;

1) Put your mouse cursor in the page number box.
2) Left-click once. (Contents in page number box will be highlighted in blue)
3) Type the page number you want in the page number box.
4) Press the Enter key

Go to Page 10
This page shows an illustration of the motherboard, and as it sits in your computer case.
To the bottom Right corner is the Front Panel header. It is marked by the number - 16 [ System Panel Header ( PANEL_1) ]

{ It is the second header over from the Right side. It is Black in color. The first header is a USB header, and it is Blue }

Now go to Page 22. Front Panel Header Pinout. (System Panel Header pinout)

If you cannot download this motherboard manual, or if you do not understand the pinout;

There are 4 pins across the Top row.
There are 5 pins across the Bottom row.

The Top row of pins are numbered Even
The Bottom row of pins are numbered Odd.

Starting at the LEFT side going to the Right, on the Top row;
Pins 2, 4, 6, and 8.

Starting at the LEFT side going to the Right, on the Bottom row;
Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9.

A) Pins 1 and 3 are for the HarDDrive Activity LED light.
Pin 1 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
IF the LED light is dim when operating, switch the two wires around.

B) Pins 5 and 7 are for a Reset Switch, IF, a Reset switch is used.
Pin 5 is for Ground ( - )

C) Pin 9 is Not Connected. (N/C)

D) Pins 2 and 4 are for the Power On LED light.
Pin 2 is for the Positive ( + ) wire.
If the LED light is dim, switch the two wires around.

E) Pins 6 and 8 are for the Power On switch.

Epox ep-8npa sli user manual barcode label says 5a 000901821. d33221 is also stamped on board


I don't have access to a motherboard manual, (User Manual), for the Epox EP-8NPA SLI motherboard, Wayne. Sorry.
The only info I have is the basic info on the Specifications,

http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E16813123257

If this problem is in direct relation to the Front Panel header on the motherboard, it shouldn't be too hard for you to find the Power On switch connections.

(Plastic front of computer is the Front Panel.
Area of pins on the motherboard, that the wires from the Front Panel connect to, is the Front Panel header. { FP_1 )

Processor to the top, Ram Memory to the right, and the long white PCI slots to the bottom; the Front Panel header is the long black rectangular block of pins, at the very bottom right.

Pins go across the Top row, and across the Bottom row, of this rectangular block of pins.
Connections made will be from a pin on the top row, to a pin on the bottom row.

It only takes two contact pins for the Power On switch.
(The Power On switch is an ATX power on switch. It is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.
Here is a basic example of an ATX power on switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html )

Touch two pins (One top row, one bottom row), with an LED light.
Take the two wires of the LED light, and use them to touch the two contact pins.

Contact made is no longer than 2 seconds.

If you find the right two contact pins, the Power Supply should turn on.
If not, no harm, no foul.

For example, you have touched the two pins for the HarDDrive activity LED light.
Or pins for the Power On LED light.
You won't hurt anything using a small LED light for a jumper.

Once you find which contact pins turn the Power Supply on, therefore turning the computer on, you can experiment, and see what the other pins are for.

A) Power On LED light
B) HarDDrive activity LED light. and so on.

{ IF, the Power Supply does Not turn on, you have a bad Power Supply}

If this is not the problem simply state so in a Comment. We'll go on to see if we can find the solution.

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.

ECS 755 A2 motherboard problems


Make sure you have the correct front panel header connected correctly to the case wires. Open you're manual to page 12 under the English section. There you'll find a picture of the front panel header & how to connect the case's LED's to the motherboard.
If you no longer have the manual you can download it from ECS at this link.
http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=381&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=1&LanID=0
Chances are you may have the wire's connect backwards. (Positive + connected to the negative - ECT).
Example, pin 1 is the + for hard disk drive & pin 3 is - for the hard disk drive. Cases vary on wire colors, normally if each connector has a common colored wire (solid color) that common wire would be the negative. Stripped wires are negative. Other cases use white colored wires as negative & colored wires as positive. As far as you not receiving any display. Try removing the AGP card & clean the copper contacts. Clean with alcohol.
Place a couple drops onto a cotton swab & clean the copper, both sides. Blow out the AGP slot with canned air. Re-check all connections, power & data cables before closing the case. Power on the system & check the front led's for operation.
If you still fail to get display, re-check the connection from the monitor to the case. Try you're monitor on another system. If good than you're video card could be bad. You're motherboard can run an 8x/4x speed AGP 1.5volt (only) graphics card.

Good luck zeratu_l !
