The motherboard takes the 24-pin connector? Then that part's done. Plug it in.
The VFD isn't off the ATX plug. It's usually off a Floppy type plug. It's just confusing when we read that the ATX plug is fine, it works, but then it's smaller and doesn't work.
Photo's of any type sure would help I think...
I've got a Thermaltake Mozart SX case, the VFD does too go off the ATX plug.
It's 24 pin on the mobo, but I'm saying its connectors are smaller.
I finally decided to dig out and dust off the cam to take a shot...
Left: Standard ATX connector to ATX motherboard. If I want to use the VFD I have to run the PSU pins into this, then run this into the motherboard.
Right: The 24 pinout arrangement that the smaller motherboard has. The pinouts are the exact same as the standard ATX, just smaller connector.
As you can see, I cannot "just plug it in". What to do? Any ideas?
(don't get confused about the wiring: the cables had to be flipped around so it would stay in place for the shot)
