I'm building a rig for a friend. Were building using a Gigabyte EP35-DS3L and a Coolermaster Centurion 5 for the case.
The case has a number of from panel connectors such as HD Audio, AC97, PWR SW, HD LED, RESET SW, and then two connectors (one green and one white) that are one pin only labeled + and -. I have absolutely no idea what these connectors go to.
Anyone have a clue? The case instructions and the motherboard instructions do not explain these or their homes.
Also, should I plug the AC97 or HD Audio connector to the motherboard. Not sure which one I'm supposed to use.
I was thinking they might be for the power LED, but seems so odd the the rest are clearly marked and this one isn't and the pins are separate. I'll give it a try and report back with good news or bad news.
hey, i just wanted to help out since i have that same case and i just upgraded to a EP35-DS3L as well, with an e7200. I haven't upgraded my computer for a few years now (Athlon 2800XP+), and when i pulled out the front panel connectors and tried to put it in the EP35, i didn't know what that was for either. turns out it is the power LED connector. for some reason, the m/b has 2 different power LED connectors from what i can see, a 2 and 3 pin. the 3 pin connection is vertical. the centurion only has 2 pin so i connected it to that and it worked! the manual should have which pin is +/-. i still can't figure out the front panel audio though...i've connected the HD connector to the mobo, but i can't get sound out of it. the manual states that for AC97 you can only have either the rear sound port or the front at one time, but it should be able to output both for HD. maybe if you find that out let me know!
