Right now I've got no way to activate the power-up for a system test (minus a jump i'm going to try at lunch). I've looked at the accessories on the SuperMicro site and see several split cable options up to 20 pins, but nothing for 24 pins.

Has anyone else landed in this situation before? Do I just go for the 20-pin adapter and hook-up what I can?

FWIW, here's what the 24-pin SSI connector on the mobo looks like.

Intel Server Boards can be paired up with an Intel Server Chassis that has the correct Front Panel and cable to connect it. You can also purchase spare Front Panels for the Server Chassis.

For non-Intel chassis you can attach just the cables you need to the corresponding pins.

The "SuperServer 5015A-L" supermicro superserver is built from a supermicro chassis that has a 16-pin front panel cable, and a supermicro motherboard that has a 16-pint header to match. The motherboard manual shows the pinout. Click on the "manuals" link to get a downloadable copy of the motherboard manual.
