can you easily connect the front usb/sound on a case to the usb and sound connections on a mobo since they are at the back of the case?

if thed cables cannot reach the socket on the mobo you will have to obtain or make extension cables. It is crazy in this day and age of almost standard cases and mobos that some are in the wrong place.

You are talking of connecting the slim wires from a bunch already connected at the case end, to their appropriate places on the motherboard aren't you?

If so, this bunch is usually quite long enough and each cable is labelled.

Most are straightforward but take great care, with the USB connections to match the correct pins, because if you get it wrong, at best the front socket wont work, while at worst you will have a small but expensive electrical fire!
