    I look at your M/B and it has ubs in the back not the front but there should a spot to wire the case ubs ports to the M/B. Hope that helps you. puke:

    Look in your motherboard's manual. It will tell you.

    IF case has front USB this is a start.. You will need to take the leads from the usb and connect them to the usb just follow the picture on page 2-29 article 9 make sure you have everything on the right post..

    your usb connections on the front of your case should have a wire coming from them. It should have something like a 7 or 9 pin(4/5pins over 3/4 pins I can't remember) female connector on the end. Your board should have some usb connectors that are 7 pin male sticking somewhere. looks like this :::. or else this ::::.

    Do a Google with this as search-text: how to build your own computer
    Then do your 'homework' and start reading those websites.

    Much better than posting one question after another....
