Maybe Dell was very proprietary before or with other desktop But my current XPS 435 MT work with all other alien component. I was afraid that front USB , micro headset, and eSata will not work with Tempest case but it work too well considering the fact that Dell XPS 435MT casing got different panel connector than standard casing. For example, the front panel power switch connector came in with 8 connector like front USB connector with HDD LCD connector and reset connector wiring all goes in single 8 pin connector. However, after testing each pin with screw driver and checking wires color from the Dell casing. It was easy, Tempest power on and off with XPS inside just like a normal board. Beside PSU is not proprietary anymore, I guess Dell must have changed.
hey i just sent you an email earlier but just in case you didn't get it... would you mind helping me with the pin outs for the xps 435 MT i've been dyeing to install my motherboard to this new case
mind telling me in order what the order of the motherboards front panel connector is
