Sorry for crappy cellphone camera pics!
Here is a picture of what I have put so far. I have cpu in (am3 2.8 quad core) and RAM (4gb Drr3).
What are these things circled on the I/O plate. Should I fold them out of the way? Sorry but I'm being paranoid with my first build!
I will give you (crappy) final pics shortly after you answer :P!
Problem.... Where they heck does this thing go?
I have an BIOSTAR A880G+ AM3 Mobo. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138283
My question is where do I connect this last (and only) case cable? It is pretty much the power button and Hled into one connection and it looks like it would fit into a spot on my mobo called j_com1 or something similar.
Please put up with crappy camera :p Where it is red it doesn't have a hole.
I know this cable is the power and hard drive led because it is attached to the little LED and two others are attached from the power button area. I am using my old case from a compaq presario sr1120nx... don't know what else to say.
The I/O shield plate that comes with the case...garbage it. You will need to use the one included with your motherboard.
As for the front panel connectors, use the motherboard manual to determine how to connect these on your motherboard.
Yeah I used the one with the mobo. This connector is like some proprietary connector... don't know what to do.
Alright I ordered an atx power switch w/connector. Everything is pretty much hooked up. The powersupply isn't seated against the case perfectly because on the corner where you plug in powercord into the psu there is rubber material around it and it puts some separation between the case. I bent a part of the case a bit to get it to fit better and 3/4 screws are in very good and the 4th there is a tiny bit of separation... I think I'm fine?
That connector should plug directly into your HDD LED, Power Switch, etc. header on the motherboard. It's a group of somewhat long pins sticking out of the board [in your first pic, it's the top-right-most connector]. That plug should insert smoothly into the header.
If the plug is smaller than the number of pins, line up the power switch pin and go from there.
You shouldn't have to bend those I/O shield pieces out of the way. They are usually there to provide some pressure on the mobo to make sure it lines up properly with the screw holes in the case. They also help to line up the I/O connectors with the shield. It's not a big deal if you remove them as long as everything lines up properly.
Hope that helps. Good luck.
Thanks everyone, I managed to get it up and running :)
Specs are AMD Phenom II X4 925 Deneb 2.8GHz , WINTEC AMPX 4GB DDR3, and Antec 380D psu. I will build a better rig later on for gaming... and get a camera for good pics :P
