Hi guys. Today I just bought a new Mobo (gigabyte 990xfa ud3) and 8gb Gskill ripjaws 1600, I already owned a phenom II x4 955 , a gigabyte gtx 460, a thermaltake 550w purepower and a atx thermaltake v4 case, so it was likely a motherboard update. I haven't been able to turn in on for 2 reasons: First I didn't know this board doesn't have an IDE port, so I will have to replace my old dvd drive in order to install windows, and second I am quite uneasy about connecting it. I already place everything in order, but the atx pwr , leds, reset. The manual says the polarity it should be put, but the case only has two cales mixed in one that says pwrsw.
I know you can seriously damage your Mobo by connecting the atx pwr wrong into the pins, can you guys help me out?
The power and reset switches don't have polarity. If a LED is connected wrong, it simply won't work; revere it and it will work. Connectors that could damage a sysetm always are keyed to prevent mistakes.
