How bypass case power hookup
Nov 25, 2012, 4:17 AM
I am try to hookup a motherboard outside of the case. There are 3 contacts in the m'brd PwrSw pin blocks: +5v, gnd, & pwr. I assume these are the only relevant pins ?
How should I connect these to power up the board ?

You see the pins in the bottom right where you would connect the cases power switch to? Get a screwdriver and short those pins, that will start the mobo.

Or if you can get your hands on one from somewhere else a jumper would work too, put it on when you want the system on and take it off when you want to shut it down

I traced the "pins on the bottom right" & saw that the power switch merely shorted the "pwr" pin to "gnd" to complete the circuit.
Thanks for the clues.
