    M2-ATX question: J8 wire (to motherboard on/off)

    What is J8 on M2-ATX? Where on motherboard is it going? I am a little confused, can anyone help?

    My motherboard is Via EPIA MII12000. I kind of know what this means, but I can't find where this supposed to be going on a motherboard.

    Thanks guys.

    It goes to the "power switch" leads on the MII.
    MII-12000 / Ampie / Lilliput 7" / BU-355 / PicoPSU / uSDC
    Currently: Enjoying the setup, but always contemplating my next move...

    Hey thanks but already have a PWR SW going from the ITX case.

    So now the way I understand that power switch will be controlled by my M2-ATX right? Whenever ignition on it will be equivalent to turning power on.

    Sorry I am as you see a newbie so a couple of things are still confusing.

    You have the power switch going to your ATX case, but is that how you want to turn the PC on and off? The J8 pins need to go to the same jumper on the motherboard that the switch goes to. THEN your M2 will be able to turn your PC on and off (assuming you have the ABCD jumpers set correctly). If you still want to use your manual switch, then plug it into J9 on the M2.
