All the wire in my first post are correct, do not change them round as you will blow onboard USB fuse (not repairable)

this might be useful
Usb connectors to motherboard

Just follow the labels on the pins
1 +5V = power or pwr = VREG_FP_USBPWR0 = VCC 1
2 +5V = power or pwr = VREG_FP_USBPWR1 = VCC 2
3 USB_FP_P0- = DATA –1
4 USB_FP_P1- = DATA –2
5 USB_FP_P0+ = DATA +1
6 USB_FP_P1+ = DATA +2

ground is obvious
usb2- = data2-
usb2+ = data2+
The case pins will be marked 1 and 2, but the motherboard 3 and 4 (because 1 and 2 for the motherboard are on the back connectors of the board.)
So your set of four pins for port1 on the case gose to the 4 pins marked 3 on the board.
And the set of four marked for port2 on the case go to the set marked 4 on the board.
So you take a 4 wire set for each port +5v, data+, data-, and Ground and match them up to the pins on the board. The colours of the cables are not relevant - it's what's marked on the connectors that counts.

Howard, so, if i have 2 usb plugs on the front of the case and...
each usb plug has a 4 pin plug both of the plugs (1 for each usb) goes into the top header marked ' USB 3/4 ' ??

In both rows the red wire goes to pin 1 or 2 followed by the other wire above white green then black the fifth pin is also black extra ground wire
