So I ended up getting a DS20 motherboard, 2 500mhz CPUs and 4gb of ram. Does any one have a DS20 that can take a picture of the wiring between the power supply, the cpu modules and the motherboard? Or is there a detailed guide out there?
I was going to use a spare 600w Antec ATX/EATX power supply I had, but now I am thinking that might have been wishful thinking. It's pretty clear where the 24pin goes and the 8pin towards the top right of the board, pretty standard pinouts. But the 16 pin connector below the CPU module for 5v power seems unique in addition to the 18 pin on the actual cpu modules.
Also for the life of me, I can't find the pins for the on switch. I found the power led, reset, scsi led, hdd led, the speaker and a bunch of fan pins, but no power switch pins.
I guess it might have been better to simply hold out for a DS20 in a chassis for a reasonable price, but I still haven't seen any.
