With certain motherboards, and with certain headers, the shielded cable must be snipped in order to not short out the USB ports. You can see that pin #10 does not have a connection. I have seen some headers (the wire from up front) that have the shielded cable connected in such a way as to short something out.

I hope I am not confusing you more. Maybe someone else has a better way to explain?

I have same type of board but earlier model. The usb headers from the front panel are clearly marked and are a single plug. You should not be able to plug it in incorrectly altho "murphy lives in my house" ...

Anyway since you mentioned something about power what type and wattage of power supply are you using? It may be that you are attempting to put a new board into a really old case ... unknown ?

For the rear usb ports just purchase a card, pop it in the backplane and connect the header wires ... most are well marked and easy to installl.

best of luck

I have the same board with a thermaltake Kandalf LCS case. The 2 USB connectors from the case were 2x one flat connector with all the wires in the connector lined up in a row. The connections on the mobo have two rows, it's easy to get confused as to which side to attach the single row connectors to the dual row connections on the mobo. I can help out a little later, I'm at work but when I get home I'll open up the case and post a reply about how my connectors are situated on the mobo.

Sorry I've been away, holidays and family crap on the holidays.

Anyway Iook a pic of my board connection it but it's way too bright, you won't see a thing. I don't know your wiring color code but here's what I did

Here's a pic from my manual:

I attached the connectors on the "inside" row of the usb connections. That's the row closest to the sata connections for the hard drives, if you look at the pic in the link below on page 48 figure G, it's the right-side column!

Attach them with the red wire facing left so that the red wire is connected to the power (+5) pin on the USB connector.

See page 48 figure G for the pic of the USB connector and pin by pin description.

I hope I haven't confused you.
