About motherboard jumper configuration

  1. hello all

    l just bought a new motherboard that lam gonna install in a new computer case as an upgrade. l was looking at the manual that comes with it about the jumper settings.
    Even though it has the right configuration printed on it (and this is the same settings that are actually in the mother board there there is something in the manual that confuses me.

    "It is required that users place the USBPWR_F & USBPWR_R cap onto
    2-3 pin rather than 1-2 pin as default if you want to wake up the computer
    by USB/PS2 KB/Mouse".


    What does this mean?

    - Do l have to change the jumpers to the 2-3 pins so the can work??
    -or this is an extra suggested setting?
    -Should l just leave the jumpers where they are and go ahead and install the motherboard?

    l really don know what to do. As l mentioned before the board is brand new.

    all comments will be greatly appreciated.

    its nothing man, just leave it as it is, that is for the power settings in the bios, no one really uses them, just leave them as they are and it will work.
    and if you wanted to power on by usb, i think it has to have its own powersupply.
