I just bought a hp compaq pro 6300. I can't find the cpu fan header. Where do I plug in the heatsink fan cable? And how do I short the pins to jump start the motherboard? I checked the manual, but I couldn't find anything. Can someone take a look for me or tell me how to?
Thanks, have a nice day!
The CPU fan header is almost always above or to the right of the CPU socket, but on some OEM motherboards like the one you have it's sometimes in the top left corner for a "duct" style cooler. For the pins you have to short, if they're color coded, they're most often the red ones. If not, the power switch pins are most often the two to the side of the one that's missing.
