I was able to install the motherboard into this new case - all holes lined up and it is all secure. Now I have all these wires from the front panel I/O, like power switch, reset switch, 2 usb front ports etc. This Dell mobo has absolutely nothing physically written on it to help me find where these connectors go, so I spend a couple hours on dellcommunity.com trying to find something about these pins which I did. I go to try these recommended connections and the connectors from the case are too big for the mobo. And the case front-panel power switch is 2 pin connectors, others are 1 pin connector and they are just a hair too big for the pins on the motherboard. Through this forum, it is recommended to connect to the J24 connector - too big. Thinking I might be able to trim these down somehow to make them fit, I've broken one of them, crimped another and no telling to some of the others. Working with what I have and have tried to fix and thinking I'm able to atleast turn the power on, I get absolutely nothing when I turn on the on/off switch.
Does anyone have any helpful hints/solutions to this problem or am I just down on my luck ? Thanks in advance for any efforts you might make to help me out.
