Front Panel USB Ports

Hello everyone.

The USB Ports on the front panel of my desktop connect to my motherboard using a wire. Now thats all fine and dandy but I do not know which to plug it into.

The pin layout for the following (which match with the USB's cord) is this.

. . . . .
. . . .

Now I have 3 of those that are USB types. Except one says 'USB78', another says 'USB910' and the last says 'USB1112'.

Anyone have any clue which this goes to? :s

Edit: Managed to get it working. Plugged it into the USB1112

Doesn't matter... the system will sort it out.

Good Sorry I couldn't help... Did some more reading and apparently the numbers just refer to port numbers. So theoretically you could connect it to any of them.

Now, why couldn't my motherboards 'book of knowledge' just say that?

I have a similar ASUS board and all 3 of those headers are for USB and the numbers refer to the port numbers (two USB ports per connector)
Should be in the Manual under Connectors.
