My friend is constructing a PC with a gigabyte ga-990xa-ud3 1.2 motherboard.
Does anyone know the exact location of the pins you need to connect to boot up the PC without a power button (or what they will be labeled as)?

Get a screwdriver and touch it in between the power pins. They are usually the two green ones. Don't bend them as it will be harder to connect them when you actually plug the power connector in.

The power switch pins (probably PW on the motherboard) are clearly identified in the manual.
