Hi, I've just built my 1st system, it's working OK and OS is installed but I can't figure out which USB plug goes where.

Here are 3 pics of Plugs, sockets and Mobo manual info. There are 2 Front USB sockets on mobo and 2 cables with 4 plugs on each.(#2 is in pic). Can someone tell me which plug goes on what pin,thanks.(Why didn't they use a block connector)
Thanks in advance.

Dunno why forum won't display link. Also looks like you need a yahoo id to sign in. Knew I should have stuck with photbucket or image shack !

From pin 1 which should be marked with a white line,

Red White Green Black.

Thanks jimv7, but pin 1 isn't marked at all.
Here is a picture from Mobo manual.

There are 9 pins in each of 2 sockets. 2 Cables with 4 pins on each, should I follow your colour coding from left to right on both rows,with both cables, leaving just the top right (NC) pin unused in 1 socket and the other socket completely unused, or do I fill 4 out of 9 in each socket? and if so from top left or bottom left?Thanks.

Yesterday, my Mobo wasn't listed on Foxconn site, today it is! Just downloaded the manual, and it appears the 2 mobo usb headers support 4 ports, so I will try both in 1 header and report back.

There is a thick white line at the lower left hand corner, according to your picture, vcc is pin 1.

From pin 1 Red White Green Black for both upper and lower connections, ignore the NC pin, this is not connected.
