Front panel connector

  1. Apr 6, 2004 #1
    I was wondering, would the front panel connector be different for a P3 and P4 motherboard? I noticed that the p3 had 2x9 pins while the p4 has 2x10. The wiring must be different then, but if I got a p4 motherboard, would I have to get a new case too? I have an ATX case for my p3 and it has wires that connect form the case to the MB are for: power LED, Power swtich, speaker, HDD LED, and reset button. If I order this more modern MB (http://www.pcrapids.com/details.php?ItemNum=358), will it allow me to connect these wires to motherboard? Or must I buy a new case?

    I think it really depends on the motherboard manufacturer.....
