Alright guys, I hope you can help me out. About 6 months ago I upgraded the motherboard in my XPS 630i to a ASUS P6T - LGA 1366, with an i7 930 processor and 12 gigs of ram. Everything went smooth, and I'm happy with the results. So what's the problem, you may be asking yourself. Well, it's with the old motherboard. It is still in working order, so instead of just trashing it, I wanted to put it into a HTPC case and put together a media center PC. Found a great htpc case (Thermaltake Mozart - got it used on ebay, so it was super cheap), and I started assembling the components. The only problem I've run into (so far) is where to plug in several of the cables that run from the front of the case to the motherboard - specifically cables labeled RESET SW, POWER LED, H.D.D. LED, M/B PWR, and GND. There are several open connectors on the board, and I assume one of them has all of these pins located within it (I'm guessing it might be the MIO USB, but I could be wrong) - what would really help me out is an overall diagram of the motherboard (similar to this - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/s ... #wp1182137), but with more detail with respect to the pin out of each connector (specifically connectors 3, 4, and 6). Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance!

There are most definitely people on this forum who have answers to your questions, so you should get some responses soon. In the meantime, I'm pretty sure this has been discussed before so you could do a search and see what comes up.

Keep us posted on how things go... I may be doing the same thing you are in the future.

I kinda figured someone here should have this information. I spent about 20 minutes searching through some of the sub forums, and I found the documents with respect to owner's manual, etc., but nothing that gets to the level of detail I need.
