can someone help me set up the cables of the pc case to mobo?


Recommended Posts

I'm always confuse with the wiring.

 

this is the mobo:

Still in transit from newegg, I was able to find the manual online from Asus's board

(it's a zip download link):

These are all the wires from the case. I'm a tad confuse of the speaker wire, it's not connected to anything?

Base on the link and images, can someone help me with the wiring?

 

This new bios seems a bit confusing, what should I do in bios? Recommended settings?

You can watch this video, it'll give you a little more info about the new BIOS...I find it quite informative even if not Overclocking.

Speaker wire should connect on the 4 pins shown in this pic. Put your CPU in, heatsink on, RAM in slots and slip the mobo into the case. Screw it down. Now with the bottom of the case towards you the connectors will be right in front of you. Put the wires on the connectors with the writing towards you (bottom of case).

Here's a link (pdf) to the manual for your board

http://www.asus.com/...8H67V/#download

 

on page 1-30 you see how to connect the speaker. The pins layout to connect your usb ports will also be in this manual. (They are to the left of the system panel connector pins) I highly recommend that before you open the static wrapper for this motherboard, you sit down comfortably somewhere and read the entire manual and get a good understanding of about what you'll need to be doing

Kinda confused here, are you the same guy who claims to have started building his own and "never looked back"?

If so, you should know where the wires go. ;)

BTW, Joe's pic and instructions are basically the same as mine. It's pretty simple, the wires only work one way...especially the USB cable that connects to the mobo...

i have never once read more than the first few pages of a motherboard manual. O.o

 

The configuration for this board is not the norm for what I see on a lot of other boards, generally, pins 1&3 are for the PWRSW. Pins 2&4 are the RSTSW. Pins 5&7 (sometimes 9) are the PWRLED and 6&8 are for the HDDLED

My apologies. What I do is get my manual out and turn to the page for the "Front Panel Connector"...

Speaker wire goes on the 4 pins labeled speaker in the pic., attach it with the word "Speaker" towards you. Reset wire attaches the same way on the 2 pins labelled "Reset". HDD LED goes on the pins labelled for the "IDE_LED". Power LED generally are 2 wires, 1 green and 1 white, each labeled + & - make certain that you get them on the correct pins as shown in the picture. Power SW wire goes on the 2 pins labelled PWRSW. If you have the mobo in the case looking down at it as in the pic, I always attach the wires with the words (reset, power, hdd, etc) facing towards me or towards the bottom of the case.

USB connectors you're looking for are here:

As you can see by the pic and by looking at the connector on the cable, they are 9 pin and one blank. They will only attach one way and you should attach any Front USB cables to the connector closest to the Front Panel Connector. Additional USB cables may be attached to the other two for permitting extra USB ports in the rear of the case.

These USB connectors should be labelled along the bottom of the mobo as should the Front Panel Connector. You may need a decent magnifying glass to read/see them.

 

Other than that...I don't know what else to tell ya'.....I learned by "trial and error", you can to, just take your time, reference the physical manual or the online one, go by the pics and set it up. On first boot, go into Setup/BIOS and select "Default Settings", hit F10 to "Save and exit" and see if it boots. If it does, you may need to restart and go back to BIOS and set up some things manually like RAM speed, etc...

 

Luck to ya' and keep asking if not sure. ;)
