USB trouble Asus / Aopen

Hi

I am putting an Asus A7N8X-X mobo into an Aopen H500 case.

Would like to use the USB 2.0 front panel of the Aopen case but the USB
header on the Asus mobo doesn't fit the plug that came with the case.

However the individual wires from the case front panel can be connected pin
by pin, and this is where I'm stuck.

The Asus mobo USB header ('USB56') has 9 pins in a 2x5 array, the bottom
left being blank. Pins starting left side from top to bottom are called:
USB+5V; USB_P5-; USB_P5+; GND and right side from top to bottom: USB+5V;
USB_P6-; USB_P6+; GND; NC.

The Aopen case USB cable comes with 7 cables called

Brown - USB PWR
Black - USB PWR
Orange - USB 0-
Green - USB 0+
Red - USB 1-
Yellow - USB 1+
Grey - Ground

- Any seriously nerdy, or should I say intelligent people out there who know
how to marry the two up without frying the hardware?

Thanks in advance,

Melanie.

+5V is another way of saying power or "PWR"
P5 and P6 are just numbers, like 0 and 1 are numbers. Thus, you should
connect P5- to 0- and P5+ to 0+ and P6- to 1- and P6+ to 1+.
GND is short for Ground. If you only have one Ground cable, then you have
an extra GND connector.

Done. -Dave
