I don't know which exact board you have. Does it look like the m3? If not, go to the ECS website and take a look at the other board. Anyway, check the "pin print out" , that should tell you which pins is what. On this board, it indecates pins 6 and 8 is the power pins.
Okay, so i purchased an acer veriton x2631 i7-4770 500gb hdd 4gb ram, the motherboard just says, Acer Inc. H81H3-AD. I cannot find the service manual to this motherboard for the life of me, and its really cramping my lifestyle. I play games on this PC and I wanted to avoid it running too hot, so i purchased another case, it being a midtower, a lot bigger than the mini tower case it came in. I disassembled everything in the old case, transferred to the new bigger case, the screw holes match up, everything fit just how i imagined it. Heres my problem. The front panel connectors. I cannot get the power switch to power my motherboard on. Ive tested the power supply, and the power supply runs fine. Im beginning to think, im not hooking the front panel connectors up right, due to the fact, every diagram i see that shows the JFP1 connection doesnt look like my "original case" f_panel connector.
Old case F-Panel Connector:
top row looks like this ^
all other diagrams look like this<div>******
if that makes any sense to anyone...
if that doesnt help anyone thats willing to help me, i will gladly email you real pictures of what im trying to show you lol..
diagrams are telling me to hook up like:
pwr led+ pwr led-//pwr swtch+ pwr swtch-
hdd led+ hdd led-//reset+ reset -
i have tried this.. didnt work.
i have tried switching the +and- around and nothing changes, and for the record i am doing this in the ONLY F-Panel connector on my motherboard, there is nothing that is actually labeled closer to where i need to be. the pins to this connector isnt even numbered live ive seen on most. help someone.. before it literally drives me insane.. and thank you.
