Re: Strange behaviors of my k6 3+ 450acz

hehe Rome Italy, not really worth the shipment :D

Btw, space problem aside, my doubt is also if sticking with old cases for the sake of "hystoricity" is actually worth, cause ATX cases are so much easier to operate with, even the cheap ones.

Re: Strange behaviors of my k6 3+ 450acz

Just now i discovered another weird behaviour: the floppy drive is not working, even if from time to time it makes some sound during boot. So i swapped it with the one in my main pc (which i cant use anymore there cause the new mainboard has no longer floppy ports), and for sure this one should be w...

Strange behaviors of my k6 3+ 450acz

Hi there! it's been a while since the last time i posted in this forum. Recently i came back on messing with my k6 retrogaming rig, and discovered something weird.

If you don't have this, no amount of cabling "fixes" will help you.


Thanks.
DVM stay for? An elettric tester?

Thanks for the info. :D Anyway it seems very hard to mod the bracket that im actually using, because no sort of wire starts from the nc pin that could be connected to another ground. I have to search for a completely new bracket on ebay, and does not seems easy to find the right one, seems that the ...

Mmm, but the strange thing is that there's a pin there, what's the purpose of having a pin if it is not connected?

Anyway, there is a way to convert it to a "ground" pin?
What exactly ground does? The purpose of data and power pins are clear to me, but i dunno what ground ones are meant to do.

Asus manual says that the bracket has the following pinout:

+5v / +5v
port1- / port2-
port1+ / port2+
ground / ground
---------/ NC

What does NC mean?

Are you getting +5V on the designated power pins? Thanks. Well, the pinout on the manual says yes, but my devices are not receiving any power (mp3 usually turn on when connected but here it doesn't, same for the steering wheel). Anyway I don't have a tester for checking directly on the motherboard.
