  1. Building new computer, ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe board

    For the board 1394 connector, I was
    able to match them up, but there are
    2 less wires from the front panel port
    than there are pins on the board

    The board has two +12V pins, the panel has one
    The board has three GND, the panel has two

    Any problem?

    For the USB in the front panel - don't know
    if the panel is USB2 or not for sure, I do
    know the board is -

    Board has:


    Frt panel has:


    The numbers in (), above, actually are
    numbers shown inside an O on the schematic

    Except for the GNDs, I'm pretty much stumped there.

    I think that's the last mystery I have to solve
    to get my board all hooked up.

    Thanks for any help!!

    You're doing it again!

    You continue to bail me out of problems.

    Sure do appreciate it!

    When I see how you've matched it up,
    I do see the symmetry and logic to it.

    I'll have to name that new computer after you! :angel:

    I'm afraid I don't have any Guinness,
    haven't had one since 67 when I was in GB,
    and Dublin BTW,
    but I'll toast you with a Michelob Light!
