I don't know what you're talking about - all mine has on the back are an audio out and a power socket!

The P4 connector is on the mother32 motherboard not on the outer case (you have to unscrew it to see it)

What this means is that the PSUs you are looking at are not going to work. They are unlikely to conform to ATX 2.0, and not only do they not have the ATX12V connector, but they max out at around 160W which is almost half of the minimum needed for a board (and CPU) like this.

You are going to have to either contact the manufacturer of the case to ask them about compatible PSUs (I notice a conspicuous lack of power information on the site) or else perform a case mod to find a way to fit in or connect to a typical desktop PSU electrical engineering.

Also, a word of warning: a case that small is almost certain to have heat-dissipation issues (there is also an equally conspicuous lack of cooling information on the site). You will want to ask them about cooling and airflow while you are at it, otherwise, you will need to find a way to make sure it does not overheat (cut more holes in the case?).

hi khusboo, and thank you for your feedback, but i own the original case, i just disassemble it and figure there is a P4 connector not documented.

i want to know what is it's purpose.

I am also curious about the function of the P4 connector.

Most likely it can be for reprogramming the unit using a debugger in case the MIDI In fails
