    Connecting M2-ATX to the D945GSEJT motherboard

    Hi. I just recieved my goodies in the mail, i have been waiting a while as im in Australia.

    Anyway, im watching a video on the site to use as a guide except the difference is they are using a discontinued MB.

    My question is what connectors go where from the M2-ATX to the motherboard im using? (D945GSEJT) It does not appear to have the 24pin connectors and such.

    Thanks.

    Sorry for the Noobness

    Have you looked at the manual?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    This is the vid i was using as a rough guide.

    yes i have read the manual. but that does not answer my question.

    The M2-ATX has an 24 pin out.

    But the D945GSEJT motherboard does not have a 24 pin 'in'

    and yes i have read the D945GSEJT's manual too.
    this is the snapshot from it.

    You bought the wrong motherboard (or the wrong PSU). Neither manual will out-and-out say that, but you should be able to figure that out from their content.

    You can make the M2 work, but it will be kluuge job.
    If you want to make the M2 work, I suggest learning how an ATX power supply functions and where it supplies different voltages.

    Personally, I'd exchange either the motherboard or the PSU to get something that is meant to work together.

    Thanks for that.

    I have already sent the store an email asking if i can simply return and exchange the motherboard. not too sure what the return policy is for being an idiot.

    Cheers.

    I think your motherboard uses +12V power. If you are unable to return it its quite easy to get it work. The yellow wire of the 24 pin connector is the +12V rail. You can hook that up to the back of your motherboard (there should be a DC input there, or connect it to "B". The PSU can be turned on by shorting the green wire with any black wire.

    Your board is fine with that PSU.

    Use the 4-pin molex connection from the M2 and connect it to B (on the board).
    For that to work you just need to directly connect the green wire on the 24-pin block of the M2 to a black wire. I use the green wire and the black one right next to it. Without connecting the green to black your 4-pin will not work.

    Uhh... I bet he figured something out by now considering the last post before yours was over a year ago.

    Plus your solution isn't quite a solution. What about power on/off? Green to black would make the M2 powered on all the time other than timed hard off if set up correctly.

    My mistake about it being an old thread. I was browsing threads for a different issue.

    The green/black is necessary for the PSU to work. It has nothing to do with power on/off. It's simply a requirement that those pins are connected for the PSU to work at all.
