  1. Cheap, reliable, and you can drop a new CPU in someday:
  2. you sure the power pin and heat sink will fit in my hp p6226f-b computer

    Are you planning on reusing your current memory modules? If you are reusing the memory modules, how many memory modules do you have and what type (i.e. DDR2 or DDR3) are they?

    The only power connectors on your Pegatron M2N78-LA are:
    One 24-pin ATX power connector
    One 4-pin ATX power connector

    Do you still require a floppy connector on the motherboard?
  4. im talking about the power button connection on that motherboard will it fit my hp micro atx chassis.i dont want aget a board that will give me problem with that connection
  5. not the pegatron connection i kno it fit but the gigabyte on the link
  6. Gigabyte states:

    The front panel design may differ by chassis. A front panel module mainly consists of power switch, reset switch, power LED, hard drive activity LED, speaker and etc. When connecting your chassis front panel module to this header, make sure the wire assignments and the pin assignments are matched correctly.

    So it's up to you to make sure that you have matched the pin assignments properly.

    Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P F_PANEL (Front Panel Header):

  7. is it the same on the pegatron?
  8. some motherboard have one connection power led with all the pin fit at one time
  9. Pegatron M2N78-LA F_PANEL header:

    Matches closely to the bottom half of the pin layout of the Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P F_PANEL (Front Panel Header).
  11. The pin spacing on the Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P F_PANEL looks like standard header pin spacing to me so I would be quite confident that it would fit the HP Pavilion p6226f-b's front panel connector.
