Is this a SFF motherboard like the one in THIS Ebay auction?

From the looks of it. It seems to be a proprietary connector much like the ones found on Dell computers... You can try to find charts for the connectors to see if you can jerry rig a connector that'll convert the proprietary connectors to the ATX standard but that's going to be hard if you aren't technically proficient. A prebuilt converter would be good but that's going to be really, really hard to come by...

You can use an ATX case but be aware that the front connector ports will not work... Everything else will work, just not the front ports...

The maintenance and service guide for the Z200 workstation is available HERE. The USB pinout is on page 172. That's as far as I've looked in that service guide, but all of the info that you need should be in there, mojo.

Now I have another situation..

The mother board in the previous post with image.. Is A HP motherboard.

When I got the motherboard all working in awesome condition..

Due to paying to much money buying it off HP i went and bought a Case heat sink 1156 socket.

And a ULTRA LSP 650 Watt power supply.. wired it all and tried powering it nothing happens..

A motherboard light between the Ram slot dont even light up when the motherboard was stripped from the HP Z200 Workstation all was tested and working 100% I personally tested it and packaged it..

 

Why dosent the light on the board light up strange... It there a trigger to change to allow other PSU..

I had a problem with my Z200 when trying to install another PSU, HP does use a propiotery motherboard connector preventing the use of any other power supply with the system, however I did however manage to make a small adapter which  allows any standard ATX power supply to be used with the propitory motherboard connector, it swaps the pinouts and contains a small DC-DC convcerter board to raise the standby voltage. I would be happy to make it for a small fee if anyone is interested, contact me at GeorgeBurgess24@Gmail.com
