    Just swaping to a new motherboard???

    Hi Guys

    I had a problem with my last motherboard so ive finnally got around to changing it, its nothing to extravagant but i brought the Mini ITX m10000.

    I'm in the process of fitting it now but i have a question:

    How does everyon who isnt using a case do the chassis pins for the on off switch etc... Because the board doesnt come with a connector aparently the case does but i dont really want to use a case?


    Ive tried searching around for this but couldnt find anything.
    Has anyone got any ideas or am i being a muppet again (Its been a long week)

    Thanks for your help
    Ken

    Are you using a DC power supply or shutdown controller?

    If you are then just use the PSON connector from those?

    well personally I keep a bunch of those type of connectors around, with the crimp pins and a crimping tool, for various electronics projects...

    these are the connectors:

    these are the crimp pins:

    and this is the crimper:

    not a very cheap way to go about it, since the crimping tool is 11 bucks. your best option otherwise is finding an old unwanted computer case and cutting the connectors off.
    But don't take it from me! here's a quote from a real, live newbie:

    Thanks Guys

    Ive taken the old connector out of my last case but because its a completly different system all the wires need to be changed in the connecter.
    Thanksfully ive managed to get athe little white hole blocker out of the connector as that was driving me insane.

    Has anyone got any ideas on how to take the actualy wires out of this connector, as they seem to be pretty well secured in.

    Thanks alot
    Ken
