The floppy power cable adapter arrived, and now the drive works too. 😀

Here's a better look at the board now that's everything is inside:

Yeah, lots of empty space, it's how it goes when you mix an AT board with an ATX case.
Even rebuilding a computer feels like building a "brand new" one, thats for sure.
I also got a ps/2 port that i could use instead of the 9-pin serial port i have, but the pinout on the cable and on the motherboard is different. I want to change the pinout, but i'm not sure what's the easiest way to do it.

Things are workin'!

If you can see little silver bits on the sides of the motherboard connector, those are the latches that hold the pins into it, which if you push on with a jewelers screwdriver, or similar, will allow you to pull them out. Then you can put them back in different holes.

2017: Basement full of ancient PC stuff, starting to go through it. 2021: Still starting, heh, many setbacks. So what's this BitWrangler guy's deal ??? >>> Taming the pile, specs to target?

Yeah lots of space in the case! I have my SS7 in a case like that because I refuse to buy an AT one for 100$. I'm sure I'll find one soon.

That motherboard looks very cramped around the CPU. At least you are able to fit a voodoo in there. My 5ali61 barely fits a voodoo 2.

What is Bector? Some local brand in your country? (Funny how the label sais international in that case.)

Yeah, AT cases became WAY expensive, its just ridiculous.

Yeah, my voodoo1 just has enough space to not touch the cpu. And that intel cooler definitely helps things cool down better.

It's Sector, and honestly I'm not sure, but looks nice so I've kept it on the card.
