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 and no where to put them. This Dell mobo has absolutely nothing physically written on it to help me find where these connectors go, so I spend a couple hours at dellcommunity.com trying to find something which I did. I did find something on connecting the front panel power connectors. I go to try these recommended connections and the connectors from the case are too big for the mobo. And the case power switch is 2 pin connectors, others are 1 pin connector and they are just a hair too big also. Through this forum on dellcommunity.com, it is recommended to connect to the J24 connector - the atx case connectors are 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. Thinking that all hope is not lost, I've connected the ones I can and when I go to turn on the new case, I get absolutely nothing, no power no lights etc.
Does anyone have any helpful hints/solutions to this problem or am I just having a bad day ? Thanks in advance for any efforts you might make to help me out.
