    I recently bought a new Corsair carbide 100HR tower case and i installed this mother board gigabyte f2a68hm-ds2 my only issue i came across is the inbuilt USB cable in the tower case doesn't fit the pins on the motherboard everything else works fine. Any idea how i can get around this as i have two front USB ports doing nothing at the moment.

    Double check the specifications for the case (Did you mean 100R, not 100HR?) and the motherboard. I believe the case's two front panel USB sockets may USB 3.0 (blue inserts) while your motherboard may only have a header for two USB 2.0/1.1 sockets.

    Maybe someone else here could tell you if there is a standard part or some kind of connector adapter you can make to allow the front panel USB sockets to behave as USB 2.0 sockets. It would definitely be a non-standard useage of the front panel connectors.

    Hi yes i meant 100R sorry. Ill check out if i can get some sort of adaptor to fit but im not to worried as im going to build a new pc in a few weeks and the new motherboards will have the right fitting on them. My current motherboard is 4 years old so will see what happens. Thank you for your help to.
