I wouldn't recommend it. Congrats on the new comp man! See you went with Biostar after all.

The good news for you is that if you can narrow down the pins to the reset switch and the power switch, it doesn't matter which goes in where (ie it'll work even if the reset + lead goes in the - pin and vice versa)

Most USB header pins are arranged like this:

,,,,,VCC . . VCC
,,,-Data . . -Data
,,+Data . . +Data
Ground . . Ground
,,,,,blank . N.C.

So one of these headers can do two USB ports. So just match up the USB leads to the pins once you get it figured out. Might wanna use a non-valuable component to test the USB ports when you finish.

EDIT: Just keep checking back to see if the link is active. It says you have 1 FAQ submitted, but when I click it, it leads to the main FAQ page. Should be up by tomorrow me thinks.

Good thing you took it off, otherwise you might have been tempted to just slap it on real quick to test out the connections, then boom you got thermal pad crap melted into every little hole. Lol, trust me it's a royal pain to get out.

Position it so that in the winter the exhaust fans blow on you and keep you cozy
lol. I think I'm gonna have to steal a pic here because this may be the only chance I ever get to use it




Except it's a fairly usefull thread, but just this specific part about case placement needs pics.
Well I can go to bed happy that I got to use this badboy in a post


Mods please don't give me a warning, it's all in good fun
