Hi people! My first post.
I’ve just bought a GA-F2A88XM-DS2 mobo bundle and I’m planning on putting it into an old case that previously housed a K8M8MS Jetway. It all seems pretty straightforward except for the front panel connections, as shown in the diag below:
Top is the Jetway connection, bottom the gigabyte
I am assuming the gigabyte matches the RH panel of the Jetway, but someone may advise differently.
However, in addition, I have a connector from the front panel to the SPEAK panel shown in the diagram, just a black wire to VCC5 and yellow to SPKR. Seems to me these will be redundant with the new board as I can find no similar connection, but I don’t really know what they do.
Any help much appreciated.
I think I joined this forum at a slightly awkward moment. I first found it a few days ago with the link from Novatech’s main site. But it took me to a very old-fashioned looking setup where there didn’t appear to have been a post since 2013. Maybe Novatech have given up on it I thought, but decided to test it out by signing up. Nothing happened, no authentication email, so I thought the worst. but kept the page open. Suddenly the other day the ugly duckling turned into a beatiful swan, so I decided to have another go signing up. This time I did get an authentication mail, but when I clicked the link I got a page error. Repeatedly. Then checked all my connections. Then fired an email off to Novatech. No reply. but shortly afterwards the forum page said it had been upgraded, so I tried again. This time I was in. Bit of a mission!
However, I joined because I have become a big fan of Novatech. Quality stuff at quality prices. Amazon are the losers.
