new mobo in old case?

  onlymeagain 21:17 10 Feb 2004

Hi i have been given a shuttle hot661v mobo, wanting to know if i can put it in my old dell dimension case, think the mobo will fit but what i am concerned about is the power buttons, on my dell it is like an 16 pin "block connector" but on the other board it has lots of pins, eg 2pin for reset, 2 for pwr led, 2 forpw on etc.
Can i buy just a new on off button with these leads or does it need a complete new case?

Since you will likely need a larger power supply anyway, a new case is a better way to go.

They're not expensive, and will have all the correct wires and connectors. Trying to redo the case wiring would be a nightmare anyway, as you would really struggle to find the correct parts.
