but only if your motherboard has the connectors, some don't. If your motherboard does not have those connectors you just store the wires. The board manual should have a picture of the board showing all ports. If the USB and speaker are not shown, just store the cables.
Hi, i wonder if anyone could answer a question for me please. I have just begun my build Today and all was going well, my motherboard with CPU and fan, DVD drive, Floppy drive, Hard drive, Graphics and Sound cards and all my cooling fans are all fitted to my case, however i am at a loss with where to put some cables that come from the front of my case. I looked at my motherboard manual but it does not seem to show any sockets for them.
What i have are two cables from i think front USB ports. I know there are two sockets for these on my motherboard, however they are all individual plugs and not just 1 connector.
The plugs are marked as follows with their colours in brackets - 1 +D (green wire), 1 -D(white wire), GND(black wire), VCC 1(red wire). The second wire is the same but the number 2 instead of 1. I think these will be for the motherboard sockets USB1 and USB2, but as i only have 4 single pin plugs on each cable and the USB sockets have 9 pins, i do not know which pins to use and as i said earlier my motherboard manual does not seem to tell me either.
Another wire i have from the front of my case has 7 individual pinned plugs. They are as follows - GND(black), SPKOUT R(red), SPKOUT L(white), RETURN L(yellow), RETURN R (blue), MIC-BIAS(orange), MIC-IN(green). Are these for my sound card? if so where can i find out which pins are for each plug. My sound card only has 4 pins anyway so they would not all fit.
I know it may be hard to know what i am talking about without actually seeing it for for yourself but I hope someone can help me with this problem. Oh incase this helps my motherboard is GIGABYTE GA-945GCM-S2L and case is Duke Prism 500. Thanks
