Windows 7: mobo usb headers vs 5 pin connetor

mobo usb headers vs 5 pin connetor

I just bought a card reader to go into my new rig. A rocketfish (RF-CRDRD) from bestbuy. To my surprise the plug connection is a single row of 5 pin holes. My mobo usb headers are two rows of pins; top row has 5 pins and second row has four pins. According to the product quick set up guide, it shows a picture connecting the skinny 5 pin connector into the two row usb header on the mobo and looks like it's connected to the 4 pin row. The picture is quite vague and there is no directions in the set up guide as to what way. So do I need a card reader with the correct connector or will this one work. Right now it does not work. Need some input.

Sorry for the false alarm. Yes it does connect and yes it does work. My dumb ass just had the connector upside down. Pin 1 was in pin 5 slot. After rechecking the pins #1 pin and a quick look at my connection, I realize that I had it backwards. It's all fixed and working. Now just waiting on GPU to come in.
