    Hello,
    I have an AsusA7n8x-e Deluxe Motherboard and a case which brand I don't know. I'd like to attach the front panel audio/usb connectors to the relative pins of the MoBo, but the pins/connectors designations do not match.
    I have some ideas, but I'm not aware of the consecuences of connecting them wrong so I'd like not to mess with it on my own. Could anyone help me? The designations are as follows:

    The USBs

    MoBo(from the User's guide):
    USB56:
    usb+5v usb+5v
    usb_p5- usb_p6-
    usb_p5+ usb_p6+
    gnd gnd
    nc

    USB front pannel connectors (from themselves):
    vcc1, data-1, data+1, gnd1
    gnd2, data+2, data-2, vcc2

    The Audio

    MoBo(from the User's Guide)
    fp_audio
    mic2 agnd
    micpwr +5VA
    line out_R BLINE_OUT_R -->these are connected with a jumper
    NC
    line out_L BLINE_OUT_L -->these are connected with a jumper

    Audio front panel connectors (from themselves):
    gnd, mic in, lin, lout
    rin, rout,gnd, mic in

    On the front panel there are an Audio Out 3.5mm jack, an Microphone In 3.5mm jack, two USBs and one more interface
    connector (1394? Not sure, but I'm not interested in it).

    Thanks for any help provided.

    Looking at the USB56 connector from the top (row of 5 pins)

    Reading from the side furthest from the end of the board
    TOP ROW
    The colours are RED-White-GREEN-Black with the 5th pin not used.
    BOTTOM ROW
    Same sequence
    RED-White-GREEN-Black

    So you end with two rows of pins covered by the same sequence with the 5th end pin on its own uncovered.

    Thank you for your answer. So, just to make sure I understand correct, the connectors are as follows:

    usb+5v to vcc1
    usb_p5- to data-1 (this one is yellow here, not white)
    usb_p5+ to data+1
    gnd to gnd1 (that figures).

    Yes? Any chance to know what happens if connected improperly - the connected usb device won't start or the MB (or the ditto device) will get fried?

    From my experiences, just won't start.

    That's better, this way I'll have a not-so-expensive clue if it's not connected properly :p Thanks.
