(Solved) - h-rs880-uatx Power Switch placement?(4 posts)
I had enough parts laying around for another PC, so I bought a new case for it. I got everything else installed, but I don't know where the HDD lights and power and reset switch plugs go.
Apparently no user manuals for this board exist. Several people have contacted HP and Foxconn and been told so. Does anyone know the configuration for these connections on this specific Board?
No markings on the mobo nor color code for the front panel heaader? If not, I'm afraid you have to trace them one by one.
After way more googling, I found an answer. Near the SATA ports is the J18 jumper thing (visible in one of those linked pics.) This eventually led me To This. The response includes a diagram of the connector. Seems to work, though I'm waiting on a few more pieces to get it to boot something.
Thanks for your help, and I hope anyone else in this situation finds this thread.

The HP H-Joshua-H61-uATX uses the Intel LGA 1155/Socket H2 CPU socket. Any compatible Intel CPU will have the same socket entry. It uses the DDR3 memory type, with maximum speeds of up to 1600 MHz, and 2 DDR3 slots allowing for a maximum total of 16 GB RAM.
The UTX, or uATX form factor is analagous to the Micro-ATX form factor. The UTXHP H-Joshua-H61-uATX should fit into all ATX cases, but its smaller size allows you to downsize your system build as a whole. Its size comes at the cost of features, so there are likely to be far fewer connections and expansion options available than in a larger motherboard.
The HP H-Joshua-H61-uATXsupports onboard graphics. This allows for integrated graphics when paired with a compatible CPU that supports them. Integrated graphics are a cheap alternative to using a graphics card, but should be avoided when frequently using modern applications or games that require intense graphical processing. There are 1 PCIe x16 slots on this motherboard. This means it is perfectly capable of accommodating the latest graphics cards, although it is important to try and use a graphics card with the same graphics card interface of PCIe v2.x, as anything below will not reach the motherboard's potential, and anything above will have its performance slashed to the bandwidth maximum of the HP H-Joshua-H61-uATX's PCIe v2.x. The HP H-Joshua-H61-uATXdoes not support multiple graphics cards via Nvidia SLI or AMD Crossfire.

The HP H-Joshua-H61-uATX has 7 USB 2.0 slots and 1 USB 3.0 slot. USB 3.0 slots are theoretically capable of data transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbit/s, which is over 10 times faster than the USB 2.0 top speed of 480 Mbit/s. Although USB 2.0 slots alone currently serve as well as ever, an upgrade would better future-proof your system as more USB 3.0 compatible peripherals emerge. USB 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0, which means you do not even have to use the newer slot functionality if you do not wish to.
