Front USB Names Different

  1. Hi. My new case is a Logisys acryllic case....100% see through. My new motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-K8NS. The case has 2 front USB ports, and the cables coming out of them are
    White = Port -
    Green = Port +
    Red = (+)
    Black = (-)

    The motherboard is the standard 1-8 and 10 pin setup. They are labeled as
    1 = Power
    2 = Power
    3 = USB Dx-
    4 = USBDy-
    5 = USB Dx+
    6 = USB Dy+
    7 = GND
    8 = GND
    10 = NC

    My question is...what goes where? My other setups were much easier to hook up [they weren't the same but closer]. Thanks

    I have two different boards but they are marked the same
    White=Dx- or #3
    Green= Dx+ or #5
    Red= Power or #1
    Black =Groundor #7

    2nd usb corresponds = 2,4,6,8

    You should confirm ,I must set jumpers to channel these connections to two different items.
    The manual must show this

    I did. I found nothing that applied to me. That's why I came here

    1-3-5-7-nc

    First USB connector:
    1= your Power 1 --> red
    3= your USB-Dx- 3 -->white
    5= your USB-Dx+ 5 --> green
    7= your GND 7 --> black

    Second USB connector:
    2= your Power 2
    4= your USB-Dy- 4
    6= your USB-Dy+ 6
    8= your GND 8

    White = Port - = Dx- or Dy-
    Green = Port + = Dx+ or Dy+
    Red = (+) = Power
    Black = (-) = GND

    Thank you all so much. Thanks to your help, I was able to get another 2 USB ports in the back plugged in. Thanks!
