ksnvm,

 

Are you using a retail mobo in your Optiplex case or are you using a retail case with your Dell mobo?

ksnvm,

 

Unfortunately, the process of experimentation is probably your best option.  Dell does not publish the wiring diagrams of their proprietary cable assemblies.  This is one of the problems associated with mixing proprietary OEM hardware with retail hardware.
