    Can anyone tell me where to find the USB3 pinout connections for a K7SEM MB? The manual doesn't show what goes where.

    What is USB3??

    This picture displays your mobo indicating its components including the extra USB headers, listed third from top on the right hand side.

    http://www.motherboard.cz/mb/ecs/K7SEM.htm

    Is this it?

    It isn't wired, it's a plug.

    Something like this:

    No it's actually the cluster of wires that come from the front of my case where there are two USB ports plus a line in and a speaker out. .

    Hi again!
    The USB connections on the front of my computer case have two plug-ins. The wires travel back to the Mother Board with connectors that slide on to the 10 pin connector on the board. I just need to know what pin on the Board corresponds to what connector at the end of each wire (Ground, + or -, etc) Does that make sense?

    Ah yes!
    That is what the pin connector looks like on the Board. I'm just not sure which pin is #1.
    Do you know which pin is #1?

    I would try red wire on top (as suggested on that website), the worst that it can happen is the USB plug not working (test it with any USB device).

    Can't tell you much more...

    Trial and error.

    Ok, I'll try that!

    Thanks! How can I paste a picture on this page? Like you did? I have a picture of the Board I could show you (Graphic image)

    Thanks!!
    I downloaded the manual and saw the panel connector you are referring too. That's not the one I need to connect to. Go back to the manual and look at page 28, the USB3 connector is what I need to connect the wires too. There seems to be no information on what the pins on that connector are. ?

    "Note: All the ribbon cables used on the extension brackets have a red stripe on the Pin-1 side of the cable."

    From the manual.

    Look at PDF page 17. The cable usually have red, green, white and black wires.
    VCC = red
    P0+ = green
    P0- = white
    GND = black
