Dell T3600 Pttt9 Front Panel Pin Layout

Jump to solution

I am currently in need of the exact front panel pin layout on a pttt9 motherboard. I have searched, but can't seem to find a diagram labeling which pins are for power, power led light, etc. Could someone send me a link? I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

The power supply is propietary on this model and it uses a Board to attach the power supply to the motherboard with another series of cables. HOWEVER there are tons of FANS and Sensors and other required items to POST. Dell Does NOT and will NOT provide pinouts.

 The PSU plugs into a SLOT and then multiple cables go from there.

There are more than 3 Sizes and Wattage.

Dell doesn't make front panel pin-outs public for any PC model.

So unless somebody else has mapped them and posts here, you're on your own to figure them out.

Ok, I guess I'll just have to find out through trial and error and hope I don't damage it. Thanks!

Unless you're in a hurry and "adventurous", you might wait a day or 3 to see if any of the geeks around here have the info you need.

Ok, I'll wait. This isn't the only potential problem anyway. I'm also trying to use a non-dell psu (I'm not sure if it's even supplying power to the mobo?) and a used cpu (e5 2667 v1) I just bought used on eBay. Soooo... I'm probably going to have alot of troubleshooting before I get this system working. I'm a teen that's on a budget so that's why it's going to be difficult for me to get this working without spending anymore money and it's the reason I'm putting together this xeon build. Sadly this is my main rig and I would like to be able to use it soon, but it looks like I should put together another desktop from parts I have and use that until I get this xeon build working.

Don't know if the PSU in this model is a Dell OEM unit or a generic PSU.

Do you know if the motherboard supports that CPU? The motherboard has an Intel C600 chipset. So first thing is to find out if that chipset supports your CPU. And even if it does, that doesn't mean BIOS on the motherboard supports that specific CPU. So you'll need to search around to see if somebody has used that same CPU on this motherboard.

Good luck with your build...

The e5 2667 is supported. The review by Anandtech came with it. I'm just not sure about the psu and how to power on the motherboard without Dell's power switch. I'm using an Evga 100-N1-0400-L1 and a two prong power switch.

Do you know the motherboard actually works?

The OEM PSU appears to have both a 24-pin ATX connector, a 6-Pin Auxiliary PCI-E Power connector and an "8-pin Proprietary connector".

www.impactcomputers.com/6w6m1.html

The Dell front panel probably has a small circuit board. So the motherboard may not power on unless that's detected. So maybe you need a T3600 case..??

Not saying DIY projects like this aren't fun, but is it worth the time and $ to do this? Would you be better off buying a brand new system which will include the cost for a Windows 10 license, and come with a warranty?

You're most likely right, but my parents won't let me buy a new system. 😞 Maybe I should have upgraded my current system from an i3 2120 to the best upgrade allowed by the mobo which is an i5 2500 for $50. I really wanted to have a 6 core 12 thread cpu though. Plus I now have enough parts to put together another build.. That was my plan that sounded good and isn't working out. I could probably ask for a refund on the e5 2667, but I can't return the mobo. I have a widows 10 licence that should work, 12 GB ram, DVD disk drive, and a Samsung 500 gb 850 evo from that I've accumulated over the past couple years using gift cards and when on sale.

And uuuuuuuuuh, I don't really know if the mobo works. Same goes for the cpu.
