Default Front power and USB

so I have all my parts ready and I am going for the rebuild

My only question and concern is how do I hook up the power button and the audio/usb ports in the front of the tower to this mobo ?

Amazon.com: ASUS H81M-E ATX DDR3 1333 LGA 1150 Motherboards: Computers & Accessories

I know all that really matters is the power button since it has audio and usb ports in the back

thanks guy

Refer to attached pic. Red box is where the front panel (power button ect) gets hooked up to. Purple box is where front audio goes. Green box is where USB 2 goes.
Refer to this pic on how to hook up front panel.

HDD activity goes on pins 1 and 3, with positive on pin 1.

As for the thing between the boxes on the 2nd pic... that's a blank connection spot on the board for if the factory were to want to put more USB headers on the board during manufacturing. Nothing you need to worry about.

Default Re: Front power and USB

ok this is my last question before i start to assemble the parts

the front connectors that I have in my PC case are labeled as follows

HD AUDIO - 9 FEMALE PORTS
AC'97 - 9 FEMALE PORTS
(the top two above are on the same cable,
AC'97 is wired off of the main HD Audio cable)
I do plan on using the onboard sound

1394 - 9 FEMALE PORTS - I dont care if this works
USB - 9 FEMALE PORTS - I dont care if this works
SPEAKER - 4 FEMALE PORTS
-P LED - SINGLE FEMALE PORT
+P LED - SINGLE FEMALE PORT
HDD LED - 2 FEMALE PORT
RESET SW - 2 FEMALE PORT
POWER SW - 2 FEMALE PORT

which goes where on my mobo ?

page 11 and 12 on the manual for a more detailed view

They are all designed with one pin missing so if your look at the USB port on the board, there's only one logical way the install the plug onto the port. The board has all the ports marked. Use the HD audio ....the port on the motherboard has a missing pin towards the middle so you should only install it the way it easily fits. USB's have a pin missing on one end and the cable from the case should have a plug where the missing pin goes

If you got a manual with this board then thoroughly read it first, if you did not get the manual then you can download the .pdf from the boards manufacture....Read It first

Look in your manual on page 1-17 and 1-19. It shows the layout for the speaker and the front panel headers.

The + for each connector should go on the positive pin. If the case connector isn't labeled with a + sign, then look for a down arrow/triangle ( v ) on one of sides of the connector. It represents the positive wire for the case connector.

If you look on page 1-19, #9, it shows you a diagram.



^^^ In green I've outlined the Power button pins (PWR = +, GND = -)
In Blue is the Reset button pins (HWRST# = +, Ground = -)
