The weird thing is is that i can shut off the comp by holding the power button.....One more thing { sorry :whistling: } , but whenever i turn off my computer it automatically re-starts itself (only when i go to start, turn off computer, shut down)



Thanks a lot

i believe the fan controller, and dont quote me on this, is internal, so you'll need to get an bay drive (or if the case already comes with it) that is used to control the fans/reads temps and connect it to the internal part of the mobo, not from outside the case. but im not sure, so yeah.

There are 2 front connections for USB. One is behind the third PCI slot and the other is below it at the bottom edge of the board. You have 2 chassis fan connections. One right behind the I/O panel for the rear chassis fan and one below the IDE connectors( first one) for the front chassis fan. At the bottom back part of the MB is 2 connectors for Aux line in(bottom) and cdrom sound. Above these two connectors is a single connector for front audio( headphones). Just below the 5th PCI slot is 2 IEEE 1394 front panel connectors. Need any more?

For the CD IN and AUX IN i have a crapload of plugs, and i don't know which go where. I have MIC VCC, GND, EAR R, EAR L, two more EAR R, and EAR L's steming off of the other ones, MIC DATA. On another chord i have VP, VG, TPA+, TPB-, TPB+, TPA-, and GND. I have another chord that says SPEAKER on it. Do these chords also include Firewire because i have a firewire port?
Thanks

You need to download the manual for that motherboard so you can see what connections goes where.
