So, I open up the dell case today to pop in an extra 20gb hard drive. Guess what? There's no spot to place a second hard drive. I have an older case I could use, there's just one measly problem... I don't see a way to hook up it's power button to the dell motherboard. The connectors/wire colors are entirely different.
The guts that used to fill out that old case were for an Athlon 700 that doesn't exist anymore. It used this crazy little notched metal piece to slide onto some pins on the mobo to connect the power button.
The dell uses kind of a molex-looking connector for it's. Is this a standard thing now or would I end up with trouble if I switched cases?
I know there's always the alternative of just buying one huge new HD and starting the PC fresh.. but I honestly don't want to do that. I've only just now gotten it settled just the way I like it. It's taken a while for me to get it there too
