Where can I find the connector hardware to mate a newer micro atx gigabyte AMD3 motherboard with the older Dell 2600 micro computer case front panel wiring. I can follow the wiring identifications OK. Looking for 'plug-in' hardware to match these items.joe[at]

Not sure where you can find specific connectors to match your motherboard. I also ran into that situation with an older Dell case. Using a jewelers screwdriver, I carefully removed the wiring from the Dell connector, carefully wrapped the ends of each wire in electrical tape, and just connected each wire to the appropriate port on the motherboard.

Thank you Wolf. Your solution matches mine so far. Not having jewelers tools, I used a small sharp pocket knife. Some things were just not meant to be done for you. Just need to do it yourself. Thanks, Joseph
