I don’t know how to ask this question about my motherboard PLEASE HELP

So.. I have a Dell Optiplex 390 motherboard, and there are no labels on the connectors to plug the power wire in so the power button on my aftermarket case can work right, like I mentioned I have no idea what to search online for this information so if anyone knows or knows where to find a good diagram please let me know!

Can you take a full picture of your motherboard to find the model?

What are we suppose to be looking at? I see a USB header, SATA headers, what appears to be IDE for either HDD, disc drives, or floppy drive.

run a screwdriver along the pins til one of then turns the machine on

The computer turns on every time I give it power, would it work vice versa to see if it turns off?

Like @emosun said, the ol' screwdriver to the pins as a jumper works a treat

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Sorry I thought the pins were in the picture but it’s actually near the ram
