Thanks, but what about usb and power-buttons?

The power on switch connects with a 6 pin layout using 5 pins:

 o is a pin. I don't want to take a picture so here:

Do you have the cable from the Optiplex case? Here is the pinout.

I think I'm just going to get the new board. If I need a few of these cables It's going to cost more than if I go to the local computer store and a standard motherboard. I talked to the owner and he said he would give me the board for $40 and up to $20 in in store credit for the dell board to shave off some of the cost.

Yeah good choice.

 

I dealt with a Dell Precision workstation recently and EVERYthing on those boards is proprietary. What a nightmare. You would not be able to connect a standard PSU to it, you would need the PSU from that model of prebuilt, which could be very expensive to buy on Ebay, if you can find it at all.

 

Better cut your losses and deal with standard parts.

I just got back from the store and he gave me $15 in in-store credit for the Dell board. He took the Lenovo cooler and gave me a stock one that would mount. In the end, he gave me a HP board that had standard everything. It has a Q61 chipset I think and has an updated bios. Also, the bios has an automatic activation of Windows 10 Pro, so that is wonderful. All I need is a case and graphics card.

Windows 10 Pro is installed and additional drives are being formatted.

 

Only a gpu and case to go.

 

*the mobo has two memory slots so it will be 16gb in duel channel instead of quad.

For an entry level gaming system, I heard the RX470 is very good for the money. But if you are going used, depends on what you can find of course.

Help, help, help, help.

I have a basic Rosewill case and the machine is inside. I just need to do some cable-managing and connect the front panel stuff. The machine boots inside the case so I didn't break anything. 

That was yesterday, today I went to turn on the pc and it didn't boot. Just a few fans spinning and then stopping. I checked some immediate things like 24 pin connector, cpu connecter and anything to do with the power supply.

Please help.
