    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

    The first one looks a bit outdated, the second isn't that helpful since it says to refer to my Motherboards manual which tells me to refer to my USB's manual for which to connect to (hard to do since it came with the case).



    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.
