[Biostar MB] Cannot connect front panel

Simply because my front panel is an intel 9pin. The motherboard uses one of those colorful individual thingies

Halp!

  1. Your second image looks to be related to your case front audio ports versus the power/ reset buttons related to the case of the first image. You have two different connections you are trying to connect up.
  2. Actually that was a bad image sorry. Use this instead:

  3. Thanks for the larger picture but it doesn't solve the issue. The image below is for your front audio, not for the front panel as your newer images is for ( http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/fullimage.php?image=601 ). They won't work together...

  4. My front panel (its 5 years old) has the 9 pin intel, and I need to connect it to the new motherboard I got.

    These are the wires in my computer case:

    but these are the ones that are supposed to be plugged into my MB

    Sorry for confusing you lol
  5. Now were talking.... Here is where each connector plugs into on the motherboard (reference #'s from this page: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-009016.htm )

    PowerLED - Green wire plugs into #2
    PowerLED - White wire plugs into # 4
    H.D.D - Plugs into # 1 & # 3 with the Red wire at # 1
    PowerSW - Plugs into # 6 & # 8 with the Black wire at # 6
    ResetSW - Plugs into # 5 & # 7 with the Orange wire at # 7

    +1 --- just plug the various separate wires into the plug connections as listed and you'll be fine !
  7. It's a standard actually. If you happen to look into the motherboard manual you'll most likely find the connection diagram... :P

    But not everyone is a DIY builder. Honestly, I never remembered the connections myself. That's why I always keep a picture of it. :lol:
  8. It is ok to remove the individual wires from their casing, right?
  9. No... You connect the whole thing to the motherboard, not the actual wires.
  10. They'll fit with the casings left on -- if you remove them there is a slight possibility that 2 of them might touch at some point (or something could fall between them making contact between them) which could short them out - so best to leave the casing on !
