  • P2140, Zotac ND22 Box, Soldering Help

    Hey all, I have some very broad soldering questions, so I'm hoping you can at least figure out what it is I'm trying to say. I've been searching around the forums for a few days now trying to figure out what I need to do to solder wires to the power button of this setup:

    I should also say that I purchased the p2140 with the additional wiring to connect it to my case here:

    I want to have the wires soldered to the power switch because I don't want the hassle of the wake-up and hibernate nonsense. I want my unit to power on and shut off as soon as I hit the power on button on my remote start, or turn the key when I arrive to my destinations. I guess I just don't understand the process, and I don't know which wires out of the PSU (which is the P2140) need to be soldered onto the power switch. I have a friend who would be doing the soldering for me, but he just needs to know what goes with what and what goes where, lol.

    Sorry, I know this sounds very broad, but if you need to know more you can ask me other questions and I can get the answers from him.

    I started my research here:

    When I asked my friend if that would solve the problem, he told me that the power button worked off different outputs, and it wasnt related.

    I also found a bit more information here:

    That gave him the information about the positive and negative leads, but we're still missing the bit on how to exactly set it up, I guess.

    All I need to know is what wires out of the PSU get soldered onto the main board. Any help putting all the pieces of this together would be great. Thanks.

    so you/your friend are all squared away with getting power to the board, you just need help with soldering to the power switch right?

    the power solution you bought is a cable with a removable adapter:

    is the female 3.5mm connector that came with the kit a stereo, or mono connector(stereo has 3 connections, mono has 2 connections-- i can't tell by the mp3car pic)?

    and on the other end-- the male 3.5mm adapter-- is that hardwired into the power supply, and/or can you tell which wires are connected to which parts of the 2140 power button leads?
