Is it a new case/motherboard?

I had to cut all mine and do them myself because i was sticking a new mobo in a new case!

Its normally in the mobo manual.
#2
its an old mobo in a new case...

cant find my mobo manual... :(
#3
Whats the Make/model of the mobo?

Should be online somewhere!
#4
Have a closer look at the board and see if you can spot a model number.

failing that if you look on the board it should say what pins are for what.
#5
gonna have a look for the model number..

ont he mobo the pins do say 'sortof' but not enough for me to know hah
#6
My mobo (MSI) was colours with + and - signs.
#7
what model. tell us what the pins say...sort of ;)
#8
Usually, most motherboards are laid out like this....

LED + / LED - / Power + / Power - / Not Connected

HDD + / HDD - / Reset + / Reset - / Not Connected

All in this kind of fashion...

it will be on the board. Sometimes they are hard to find. keep trying or give us few numbers that you can see.

#17
If that's your mobo, then there is no need for you to take pictures.
As to USB, just use first 4 pins on each side of connector. There are 2 USB ports per connector, each side representing one of them.
#18
yeah thats the one...

ok so first 4 on each...thanks..

now the rest lol

power led -l in -> POWER LED GND
power led + -> POWER LED VCC
rin -> L-IN-R on audio header
mic in -> MIC on audio header
r-out -> L-OUT-R on audio header
l-out -> L-OUT-L on audio header
mic bias -> MICP on audio header? Not sure about this one
gnd -> Are these on their own? It might be ground for speaker or something.
hdd led -> IDELED
Reset sw -> RESET SW
Power sw -> PW BN
2 from m processor fan -> CPUFAN

put them all in god knows if there in the right places tho ill find out when i try to turn it on i spose lol

also if i have 3 hdds...how shud the jumpers go in them?

primary
slave
secondary slave??

or no?
#21
HDDs:
I take it you have 3 IDE HDDs, right?
In this case:
HDD1 ->Primary Master
HDD2 -> Primary Slave
Optical drive -> Secondary->Master (not all optical drives want to be slaves)
HDD3 -> Secondary ->Slave
#22
does it matter which way the cables go?
#23
Not sure I understood the question...

You should align IDE cable so that pin 1 (black one) will go to pin 1 on motherboard connector. If you do this, then when you connect it to HDD, the black stripe should be next to power cable.
#24
Or red stripe if your using the flat ribbon type. They should be 'keyed' so you can't put them in the wrong way around.
