Same size as power button connector but hole on wrong side

If you have a connector that is the same size and shape as the newer power/reset/HD light connector from cases, but the blocked hole is on the opposite side then it is a front case USB connector.
You need to find the connector from the case that has the same pin blocked as the one on your motherboard, the ones with the opposite pin blocked but same size and shape are the USB connectors from the front case that plug into the USB connectors on the motherboard.
