Help!
I am building my first PC and can't figure how to connect up the case front USB ports. They have eight wires coming from them coloured and labled as follows
Blue (1)+D
White (1)-D
Red (1)+5V
Green (2)+D
Yellow (2)-D
Red (2)+5v
Black (1)Ground
Black (2)Ground

The extended USB header connector on the mobo is labled as follows
1 VERG_FP_USBPWR0
2 VERG_FP_USBPWR0
3 USB_FP_P0-
4 USB_FP_P1-
5 USB_FP_P0+
6 USB_FP_P1+
7 GROUND
8 GROUND
9 KEY
10 USB_FP_OC0

Can somebody tell what to connect to where
Thanks

Sorry Pothers but that does not help, I have that info in the mobo manual, I need to know which case wire I connect to those pins.

Sorry , Didn't read your thread properly.

Have just looked inside my case and I have 8 wires , 4 per USB , connected.
They are coloured Red , Yellow , Green , And Black.Connected respectively on pins 1 ,3 ,5 ,7 & 2 ,4 ,6 ,8 . Nothing on 9 & 10.

Not that this helps if yours are coloured differently.

off the top of my head,consider the usb header as two rows.each row has 1 of each of the (numbered)wires.ie:
1+d,1-d,1+5v,1 ground
2+d,2-d,2+5v,2 ground
seems clear as mud to me,might help!

Pin arrangement of front USB on k7s5a:
(towards back of case)

1 ___ 2
3 ___ 4
5 ___ 6
7 ___ 8
9 ___ 10

(towards front of case)

USB header pin out for K7S5A

Signal name __________ pin
VREG_FP_USBPWR0 ______ 1
VREG_FP_USBPWR0 ______ 2
USB_FP_P0- ___________ 3
USB_FP_P1- ___________ 4
USB_FP_P0+ ___________ 5
USB_FP_P1+ ___________ 6
GROUND _______________ 7
GROUND _______________ 8
KEY __________________ 9
USB_FP_OC0 ___________ 10

From the ECS K7S5A FAQ

The K7S5A has a header for connecting two extra USB ports, but you need to buy an extra cable. The cable should have two USB ports on one end and a motherboard connector on the other. You also need to know what each pin connects to:

1 --- 2 Red (+ 5V)
3 --- 4 White ( -- Data)
5 --- 6 Green ( + Data)
7 --- 8 Black/Gray (Ground)
9 --- Black/Gray (Ground) or not connected

hope this helps

All you need to do is interpret the motherboard connectors correctly, to match the pins from the front panel. Each socket has four wires, yes, so :-

Power - Data+ - Data+ - Ground.

On the motherboard, you can see the clue in the names

VERG_FP_USBPWR0 = Power

USB_FP_P0- = Data-

USB_FP_P0+ = Data+

GROUND = Ground

and similarly for those that end P1 - for the other socket.

All other pins are left empty.

The +5V will go onto pins 1 & 2. +D will go on pins 5 & 6. -D will go on pins 3 & 4. Think you already know where the Ground pins will go.

ECS manuals cause all sorts of problems along these lines - they really should be better written.

The +5V connector is often described as Vcc by other mobo makers.
