    Annoying my new mobo has the connections to the motherboard from the case spread out not grouped together.

    But my case has a single big cable where the pw sw reset sw etc are all in one big cable so cant be seperated.

    I need someway to connect them to the motherboard but cant.

    How can I do it short of buying new cable and soldering it(of which I am useless) and I dont want to change case.

    The cable works so dont want to damage it.

    Will take pics tommorow so people can see.

    I see your problem, but there is really no way i can think of solving it! Short of getting a new cable like you said. What motherboard do you have? this is very strange!

    hmm... I have allways though the order of the pins were ATX standard? are you sure there is not another group somewhere as well?

    Your mboard has a perfectly standard front panel connector, its your case that's bizarre. Did you replace the mboard in something from Dell/Compaq etc.? They tend to use non-standard connectors to stop you using standard parts in repairs and upgrades. The front panel standard (not part of the ATX spec) is new enough that every case I've used has separate connectors for each separate signal/pair.

    Its also not clear what the picture is of: case cables usually contain female connectors and I see no cable, more pictures might help, especially the wiring for that block.

    I dont know if it helps, but you can just remove the cables from the plastic block? there are little black tabs that allow you to remove them. you can re order them or jus connect them straight to the motherboard. might be worth a little bit of black tape to insulate them, but they will just slide straight on the pins.

    The part you showed in the pic looks like the quick conect block that ships with newer Asus boards.

    You simply fit the case wiring to the block and then put the block on the motherboard. The reasoning is that it's probably easier to fit the connectors outside the case than it is on the fitted board.

    Your case should have "standard" wiring.
