All you need to know on where to connect the case pins to the mobo is almost always in your mobo manual. If it isnt tere is also almost always abbrevakted words bellow the connectors that tell what pin is what.
Think of head fi for a moment when you look at that review. That is like the fotm. Sapphire is a absolutely developed GPU vendor but its making a start into mobos. Should you care to get it? Really no. I prefer developed brands as opposed to saving $10. That mobo almost definately works but to me its still a fotm until it proves itself
REMEMBER THE BRASS STANDOFFS. I almost always forget initially. The moment i start to place the mobo in is when I remember which isnt bad.
Are all your parts comming from the same warehouse?
The case is from some where different than everything elese, and WHAT ARE BRASS STANDOFFS... PICTURES
So your telling my just to connect the case power on pins to my Mobo without the case inside... is the cable long enough?
But yet it doesn't sound to safe to do that trick on my first board <.< I might play around with it on some old crappy MOBO's we've got sitting in our shop one day
It should be in tommorow! So I get to build tommorow around 3:15 :D
I'll only have about 2 hours though, but I can come back to it later that night. 2 hours should be enough. It's my first build, but I've done cleaning and dis assembly and re essambly of rig's b4. Still though I'll have it up and running by Friday Morning!
