Hello, I just bought a new Guardian 921 case for my motherboard because the case I had was a tad small and started to overheat with the components i installed in it and had to leave the side panel open. The motherboard I have is a H-RS880-uATX which is an OEM motherboard from HP. The problem is the case has several small 2 pin connectors that are labeled HD LED, POWER SW, RESET SW, and SPEAKER(which is a mini 4 pin). My motherboard doesn't have specific ports for these connections and I was wondering If there was another or some adapter I could buy instead of purchasing a new motherboard. Without these connections I think the case wont turn on.

Here is a link for the Motherboard. > http://h10025.www1.h...ct=4215700#N394

Can't give you specific instructions. AS far as I know, the front panel socket is standard on a Mobo and the front panel case plugs are standard. It looks like the Socket on the Mobo is slightly to the left and between the Sata Sockets. This page may help you for answers.

When I have encountered this problem in the past I have used a digital camera to zoom in on the pins on the MB and more often than not the pins are identified by print on the MB, I then put the SD card in my laptop and enlarge the image to work with.
Someone at the attached link with the same problem was successful using the example in post #2 http://h30434.www3.h...p/473293#M27158
I hope this helps, let us know how it goes or if we can assist you in any way.

Nope, still not there... I was hoping if there is a converter of some sort for these connections.
