A power switch from an older computer. The kind when you push the button it stays on or off (not like today's momentary switches). I take the jumper off the CMOS reset header and plug it in. Let's me reset the bios without having to move the jumper back and forth when tweaking the bios.

I also made a test bench. I can pre-assemble, test and tweak the hardware before putting them into the case.
