I am trying to put a server together to install Ubuntu. I bought an Intel S1200v3RPS motherboard and plugged an Intel Xeon E3 processor into it. I purchased a 1U chassis from Supermicro with a power supply.
The power supply does not have a 5-pin cable to the motherboard's Auxiliary Power Supply socket. A bit of research did not give any definite answer on the need for the 5-pin connection. The motherboard does not power on and the CPU fan is off. I tested the power supply on a desktop Intel motherboard and it works fine.
I would like to buy a new power supply but could not find one which expressly stated that it comes with the 5-pin aux power supply cable. Any recommendations on a power supply unit for this motherboard would be helpful. Any comments on the problem would be greatly appreciated.
