A) Let's start with the two power cables coming from the Power Supply, that go to the motherboard;

1) 24-pin ATX main power cable

Looking at the motherboard photo, the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector; is at the bottom.
Two rows of 12 socket holes, in a yellowish/whitish connector.

Motherboard installed in computer case, you will find it to the Right.

(The motherboard view shown, is clocked 90 degrees to the Right; in comparison to how it actually sits in the computer case)

GENERAL example,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

[NOTE* Color of connector does NOT matter ]

Note the hinged Lock Clip on the power cable's connector.
Also the TAB on the motherboard connector.
When power cable is deemed to be plugged in tightly, and properly; the Lock Clip will be over the Tab.

{Lock Clip operates on the same principle, as a see-saw on a playground. Top is squeezed in to release Lock Clip}

2) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable

Looking at the motherboard photo, the motherboard connector for this power cable is;
Straight up from the white Processor socket,
To the right of the square finned Aluminum Heatsink.

General example of said power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Has a Lock Clip too.
Remember about the color of connector, thing.
Can be pink with neon polka dots. Doesn't matter.
WHAT the power cable IS, does matter.

This power cable is power for the Processor.
It ain't plugged in, you have no computer.

(Scroll down to Motherboard Layout. It is PU521 )

That's it for power cables that plug into the motherboard.
Moving on..........

The Harddrive is a SATA unit. The optical drive is a SATA unit.
(CD/DVD drive)
Means you need a SATA power cable for each one of them.
General example,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

Note the L-shaped opening in the connector. Hard to see in this photo, but I will show a better view in a minute.

Also; between a SATA data cable's connector, and a SATA power cable's connector; the SATA power cable connector is the larger of the two.
Has 15 contact pins.
SATA data cable connector has 7-pins.

Often there is a lock on this power cable's connector.
A tab that sticks up, or a 'bulb' type affair.
Depress with thumb, when plugging in, or unplugging.

Harddrive needs a power cable, and data cable.
So does optical drive/s.

B) General example of a SATA data cable, and it's respective connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SATA_ports.jpg

Just referring to the cable shown at the top, for now.
Now you can see the L-shaped opening a little better.
See how the 'foot' of the L goes down? That is the direction you want it, when plugging in.

The motherboard connector shown below the SATA data cable, is a SATA connector.
This particular style is OPEN.
Your motherboard uses the type that is CLOSED.
Note also the L shape on the motherboard connector.

The connector shown for that SATA data cable, is a 90 degree bent elbow.
If your SATA data cables have this style of connector, they plug into the Harddrive, and optical drive/s.

The straight type of connector, plugs into the motherboard.
It can also plug into the Harddrive, and optical drive; if your SATA data cable has two straight connectors.

The SATA data cable connectors on your motherboard, are all the way to the Left. (In the motherboard photo)

Orange, Light Blue, Dark Blue, and White.
Note that they have a L shape in the middle.

Now scroll down the HP Support page, to Motherboard Layout.

Orange = SATA4
Dark Blue = SATA1
Light Blue = SATA3
White = SATA2

SATA1 is for the Harddrive
SATA2 is for an optical drive.
If you have more than 1 optical drive, it plugs into SATA3.

(Make sure SATA3 is ENABLED in BIOS Setup)

C) The front of your computer is the Front Panel.

The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires from the Front Panel go to; is the Front Panel header.

Looking at the motherboard photo, look again at the Orange SATA4 connector. To the Immediate RIGHT is the Front Panel header,

http://www.findlaptopdriver.com/n-alvorix-rs880-uatx-front-panel-motherboard/

I believe though, that the cable coming from the Front Panel; has one solid plug-on connector. Not individual wires.

Note how the Front Panel header on the motherboard, is missing one pin. This is the Key.
The cable connector going to it, should have one socket hole blocked off.

Should only be one cable coming from the Front Panel, that has the correct plug-on connector.
The other cables coming from the Front Panel, will have different size plug-on connectors.

Going further.........
Look at what is installed in the Front Panel;

USB ports, audio ports, (Headphone and Microphone), Card Reader, etc.
You can follow the cables, and get a pretty good idea of where they go, in the Front Panel.

For example you can follow the cables that go to the USB ports.
Follow the two cables that go to the Card Reader.
Follow the cables that go to Microphone, and Headphone jacks.

Then by process of elimination, you know which cable goes to the Front Panel header.

D) Front Audio
Looking at the motherboard photo, look towards the Top/Left corner.
The Yellow header is for the Front Panel audio ports.
Headphone, and Microphone.

E) Coming down the Left side, in the motherboard photo; look at the two White rectangular headers.
Match up in the Motherboard Layout, and bottom of HP Support page.

USB1 2, and USB1 2.

EACH USB header, is for TWO USB ports.

That is why they both have USB1 2 marked near them, in Motherboard Layout.

A Card Reader SHOULD use two cables, and One USB header.
It may be though, that the Card Reader will use both of those White USB headers.

Either the Card Reader plugs into them, or the USB ports in the Front Panel.
If the cable connector fits, plug that cable in. (On)

USB is USB.
Card Reader uses USB too.

Point?
If the cable's connector fits, plug it in. (On)

In the motherboard photo, there are two White connectors;
Above the Orange SATA4 connector, and Below the Light Blue, and White SATA connectors.
(Light Blue = SATA3, White = SATA2)

The USB ports up front probably connect to them. (Front Panel)
Follow the cables to Front Panel USB ports.
What type of connector do the cables use?

All FOUR of those USB connectors on the motherboard, may NOT be used.
Perhaps just two of them.

That doesn't 'sound' very concise, huh?
However it is my contention, that each cable coming from the Front Panel; should have a different connector.

Going further;
The Card Reader, and the USB ports in the Front Panel; may have the SAME type of connector, on the end of their cables.

Again, the Card Reader uses a USB header, (Or headers), on the motherboard.
So do the two USB ports in the Front Panel.

Therefore it does not matter which USB header on the motherboard, that either one of them are connected to.

F) Looking at the motherboard photo, look above the Ram Memory slots, to the far Right.

Right above ram memory Slot 1, that is White in color. (DIMM 1)
There is a small Electrolytic Capacitor, with a Black plastic sleeve.
Right above it is a small White 3-pin connector.

This is where the Processor fan plugs in.
(CPU_FAN)

G) Right above the square Aluminum finned Heatsink, is the 3-pin connector for the computer case fan.
SYS_FAN
(System Fan)

(The square Aluminum finned Heatsink, sits on the Northbridge chip.
Which is part of the motherboard chipset)

That about does it for me.
Please post additional questions in a Comment.

How do I connect the front usb wires to my fic c51g motherboard header?


How to Install Front USB by Connecting Front USB Ports to a Motherboard?In order to have front mounted USB you must have 3 things.
  1. A case with USB ports in the front of it.
  2. A motherboard that supports front USB (usually)
  3. Appropriate wiring between the USB port and the motherboard
A case can support front USB in two ways: via a pass thru connection, or via a port to header connection. The former, pass thru connection, is compatible with all motherboards that have USB ports. Pass thru front USB Pass thru front USB works by having the ports on the front of the case connect to either a standard USB cable, or a fairly small rounded cable. The cable goes from the front of the case to a special slot cover with either a hole (for the standard USB cable) or a special connector for the rounded cable. If the pass thru USB had a standard cable, then you would simply plug the standard cable into one of your back USB ports. If it had a rounded cable, then you have a secondary attachment with something that looks like an old style SCSI connector. The attachment plugs into both the slot cover, and the back USB ports. The draw back of pass thru front USB is that you lose the ports in the back.

Many 3rd party devices that add front USB to a system use the pass thru system. A good example is this now discontinued Front IO panel
directron_1721_2292726
Front USB via a Port to Header connection In order to hook up a Port to Header connection you have to make sure that the wires from your port will connect to your motherboard's header. To do this you need to know what header you have, and what type of connector you have on the wires. You'll find information on both below.

Almost all motherboards these days have a USB header. Due to size and cost restraints many motherboards only have 2 USB ports on their back panel, but often they can actually support more then 2 USB ports. They will typically support additional ports via the use of a USB header. A USB header is either a single or double row of header pins on the motherboard that can be used to add additional USB ports to a computer via the use of an appropriate set of header connectors, wires, and a USB port. Each pin on the header corresponds to a wire inside a USB cable. These pins must be clearly marked so that you can hook them up to the wiring correctly. There are 2 common layouts for a USB header.

Intel Standard USB header Layout: (used by over 90% of motherboards)

instusb1a.jpg

Gigabyte Style USB header Layout: (used most commonly on Gigabyte brand motherboards)

instusb2b

Now that we know the types of headers we have to take a moment to understand the USB wiring. Understanding the wires First off: All USB cables have 5 wires. 4 of these wires are actively used. Here's a reference from the official USB standard.

instusb3

On a front mounted USB port you'll have either the first 4 wires connected to properly colored wires (red for power, white/orange d-, green/yellow d+, black for ground) or all five wires attached to the port (same as the former, but one extra black wire). Now where it gets tricky is how to attach each of those wires to corresponding pins on the motherboard.

The wires are "tailed" (attached to a header connector) using any one of a number of different types of connectors. Below you'll find a list of the common ones.

Common USB case header connectors 4 joined pins + 1 extra ground.
usbheader

Compatibility: Compatible with both header arrangements because of the extra ground. May not work with some odd arrangements To hook up carefully match each pin. For the Intel hookup you'll have the extra ground wire not attached to anything. For the Gigabyte hookup you'll have the extra ground hooked to ground pin on the motherboard, and the standard ground jumper will be over the missing pin on the header.

All pins separated

instusb6

Compatibility: Compatible with every header. If all the pins are separated the only real issue is lining up the pins with the appropriate places on your header. It should be compatible with all headers. Just make sure you read the writing on each individual connector. Please check the troubleshooting info at the end of the article for important information on this configuration

Power and Ground separate, d-, d+ joined Lian-Li style

Compatibility: Compatible with all common headers. This sort of arrangement is common to almost all Lian-Li cases. Make sure that you get the wires connected to your header in the proper order. If you find that the port does not function the most common cause is accidental reverse of the d-,d+. Try switching it.

All pins joined Intel style easy connector

usbinst4
making the Connection Once you know what type of header you have, and what type of connector you have on the wiring, you need to connect the two of them. In order to do this, you must first figure out what pin goes with what part of the connector. To do this, you should first consult your motherboard manual. Below you'll find an excerpt from a fairly recent motherboard manual for the Asus A7M266 motherboard. It's typical of a motherboard manual for a board using the Intel standard USB header.

instusb5

The first thing you'll probably notice is that the wiring from your case and the names of the pins might not quite match up name wise. This is a common problem. Motherboard makers and case makers really haven't decided on what to call each pin. Here's a rough list of names.

Power may be called: P, VCC, USB Power, Power, and PUSB. On wiring it's always red. Ground may be called: G, GND, Ground, and GUSB. D- may be called: USB-, USBP-, D-, or just -. D+ may be called: USB+, USBP+, D+, or just +.

To complicate things a bit more you'll probably notice that there's a number before each one. Take a look at the picture above from the USB hookup diagram for the A7M266.

You'll see that Asus decided to number the middle pins. On the first row (starting with pin 1, and marked with a 1) you'll find that they list D- as USBP2-, and D+ as USBP2+. The number 2 tells you a few things. First off: It's the 3rd USB port on the motherboard (they started numbering at 0), second it tells you that that D- and D+ must be used for the same port. Case manufacturers are just as likely to number their ports differently.

Take a look once again at the 4-pin joined picture: usbheader

Notice that you're D-'s have either a 1 or a 2 on them. These also tell you that they are part of the same USB port. (Remember, 1 port has 4 required wires). The numbering on the connector and the numbering on the header doesn't have to match.

To connect everything grab the following connectors: a same number D pair, (D-, D+), 1 power, and one ground. If your power and ground are numbered make sure all 4 are the same number.

Tip: Most cases that use all separated pins will bundle these together for you to make it easier.

Now, take your Power, D-, D+, and Ground and line the connector up with the appropriate 4 header pins on your motherboard. The header pins will be in a row under the Intel style, and in the Gigabyte style it will either be a row of 1 pin, a gap, and then 3 pins, or 3 pins, a gap, and then 1 pin. Press the connector down over the header pin and make sure it's firmly attached. Once you have done this go back and grab another set of connector wires (Power, D-, D+, Ground), and hook up your second front USB port. If your case has more then 2 front USB ports, and your motherboard has more then one front USB headers, then repeat the above as necessary.

Example: If you were hooking up the front USB on a A7M266, on a case with the pictured 4-pin joined connector type then: VCC lines up with USB Power, USBP2- lines up with USB1-, USBP2+ lines up with USB1+, and GND lines up with GND. For port 2, VCC lines up with USB Power, USBP3- lines up with USB2-, USBP3+ lines up with USB2+, and GND lines up with GND.

Is there a way to attach mutimedia card reader to gateway micro atx motherboard


I'm not sure which model number you have, but you are able and have USB ports on your computer, then the answer is yes. You can do it two ways: One way (simplest way) is to buy an external multi-reader that plugs into a USB port. The second (More permanent), is when you open up your case and look at your motherboard, you should see a white cable that is connecting to your front-mounted USB ports. Follow it back to the motherboard and see if you have another slot to put another cable in for you multi-reader (and make sure you have a spot available in the front of your case to put the multi-reader). If you don't have a spot, or another plug, then go to newegg.com and buy an internal reader with at least one or two USB ports, and replace your existing front USB port.

You need the motherboard specs, which you can look up on the internet, based on the maker.
With the USB ports, the front ones often don't include power.
So plug a powered 4 port hub into the front port, and then the hub will supply the power after that.

Havimg prob with the 2 usb ports located in front


Hi manky, Normally front USB ports have a pair of 4 wire cable with connectors marked red wire is vcc; white wire is -D; green wire is +D; and black wire is gnd. The motherboard would normally have two pairs of dual pin connectors that would be sitting side by side or in-line with uneven pins - 4 and 5 pins; then another 4 and 5 pins. Please refer to the attached simple diagram for your connection. For some reason I couldn't get hold of a manual from the Gigabyte site of your particular model GA-81KHXT. Nonetheless hopes this works for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
