Moral of the story: I’ve posted the correct diagram here. I took the motherboard back to the store and exchanged it for another of the same make and model. Except it wouldn’t turn on. I checked and rechecked every connection against the printed manual. On the plus side I have had no other problems with the motherboard thus far.

Asus P4V8X-MX p4c8x-x other Asus motherboard won’t power blos I’ve put this page online so that others with the same troubles may have an easier time finding a solution than I did. This probably wouldn’t have been a problem for someone who builds systems every day and knows the pin layouts by heart, but for someone who opens up his computer once every few months, it has the potential to be a serious headache.

Namely, the diagram describing the pin layouts for the PANEL connector were completely wrong, and following that diagram you would wire the power and reset switches to the wrong place. When neither of these things yielded any results, I concluded that I must’ve somehow fried my power supply, so I bought a new one of those. Both frustrated and hopeful, I sought out the online PDF version of the manual, and took a look at the diagram, comparing it to my own.

I’ve put this page online so that others with the same troubles may have an easier time finding a solution than I did. I’d had good experiences building Sempron-based machines with Asus K8N series motherboards, and so I thought I was in for a walk in the park.
Hitting the power switch would not yield so much as a fan spinning or a peripheral powering up, nevermind a BIOS screen or a beep. Finally after days of scouring forums, I came upon a post about another Asus motherboard that had severe errors in its manual. Obviously I have no affiliation with Asus, and all product names and company names mentioned on this page are probably trademarks of their respective owners. I got home, chucked my old crusty motherboard in the trash, seated the P4V8X-MX in its place and hooked it up.
As ofsocket series motherboards and CPUs are almost extinct in the Canadian OEM channel, and I really didn’t feel like buying a new processor when the processor was just fine.
