More about xw6600 board 440307
  1. still looking --- no one I have been able to get in contact at HP / Compaq has been able to locate the information either.
  2. If you are still looking I can ascertain the pin connections for you on my xw6600
  3. I think the colors are correct, but as they seem to be unconventional. I still need to identify the colors used, especially the power
    switch

  4. Best answer
    Here you go -

    1 + 2 = LED, Power
    3 + 4 = Power Switch
    10 + 11 = LED, HDD Activity
    6 + 15 = Transistor connection, inside loom sleeving. Not sure what this is for
    7 + 8 + 16 = 3-pin plug, optional Hood Sensor Switch
    9 + 18 = Case Speaker

    I think maybe 6 + 15 are to inform the mobo that the connector block is actually connected.
  5. I updated the picture. Thanks @dumpystig i will try it in the morning.
  6. It's a funny one this - most of the HP Service + Technical Manuals I've seen have the Pin Connection diagrams for all the mobo connectors. The xw6600 has most of them but misses this fairly important one.
    Good luck with your install

  8. Just found the following extra info -

    Pins 6 + 15 = Ambient Temperature Sensor.

    Measures inside temp of case.
  9. Thanks,
    Think I still have my work cut out for me. Think I need a new vid ank a case speaker to tell me what else I need
  10. Right, what exactly are you trying to do? If you're after fitting the HP board into a OEM (non-HP) case then I may be able to help you further. I have a dc7700 mobo which I've installed into a CoolerMaster/Evesham case - I had to modify connectors and pins to facilitate operation and functionality of the HP front panel components.

    I'm also trying to get a Hw6600 motherboard (440307-001) motherboard to work in a non-standard case. I have connected up all components but on pressing the power on the fans just start to spin for only a few revs then stop. There is a green led on the mothboard which is lit. It appears the power does not " latch" - i'm sure there may be a problem with the front panel connections, which ones are definately necessary for power- up?
  13. Yeah that's about where I got it. I just gave up messing with it anymore. I'm sure I'll get back to it at some point. As I was just trying to test out the pieces I did not hook up fans and cooling. I wonder if I have to have them all connected. Oh it might help if I had a speaker connected the board.
  14. did you get it to run. I have everything hooked up. Power flows for a split sec when turned on, then nothing.

    You need the special HP power supply. You appear to be trying to power this up with a standard ATX power supply. The HP supply has 2 further 12v supplies instead of a 5v and 3.3v as on a standard ATX.
  16. so you got it going? Very nice. What power supply did you get

    I bought an xw6600 PSU from ebay. No problems, powered up straight away. I have twin CPU's installed and 16gb ram and its very fast so worth the extra expense of the PSU.
  18. I have 16 in mine I am worried about the twin 5450s
  19. I know this is a very old thread but its one of the few threads I can find when doing a Google search. I have the opportunity to put together a system using an XW6600 motherboard (the one with the angled DIMM slots) but I'm having a difficult time figuring out if the placement of the rear panel connectors (audio, USB etc) and the mounting screws are compatible with standard ATX or Extended ATX cases. I have a huge old Gateway 980 server with a useless Socket 603 board in it and I'd like to use this board in it to put together a dirt cheap Dual Quad Core Xeon server\gaming system.

    Also, I have the 450W Delta PSU from the Gateway case as well as a Silverstone 650W unit that actually has an 8pin 12v power connector (similar to most server supplies)... does anyone know if these are likely to work for this board as well?

    I've been researching this for over a week without any definite answers, and I'm not going to take the plunge on an $80 server board unless I can actually use it.

    By the way, the only reason I'm doing this is because socket 771 Xeons are amazingly cheap. A 95 watt Socket 775 Q9300 2.5Ghz with 6Mb cache still sells for over $100, yet a low wattage 50 watt Xeon L5420 2.5Ghz with 12Mb of cache can be had easily for $19. Throw two of them into a system with a ton of ECC RAM (also incredibly cheap) and it'd be quite a beast for less than the cost of a new i5 quad core alone.
