Help with internal connections.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to figure out how to connect the ports on the top of my case to my motherboard, but it's a little confusing. I figured I could just match up the connectors with the labels on these Q-connector things, but the labels don't match up.

The firewire comes with labels like VG, vp, tpb+, tpa-,tpa+, tpb-, ground, and two vgs. The USB comes with just 2 of the same grouped wires labeled vcc1, data-1, data+1 gnd1, shield1.

The actual connectors have spots for (firewire) gnd, +12v, tpb-, gnd, tpa- on one side. tpa+, gnd, tpb+, +12v on the other. The USB has nc, gnd, p2+, p2-, +sv on one side and +5v, p1-, p1+, gnd on the other.

The manual doesn't really clear things up in this area, so I was wondering if anyone here could help as you guys have probably done it many times. Also, does it matter what direction I put the single pin connectors in?

Actually, I just found the place where my case manual describes it, but there are 9 physical connectors, but only 7 that the manual says to connect. So I'm left with a spare +12v connector and ground connector. Does that sound right?
