or if the link is unavailable then here is the same info

pins 1,3,5,and 7 are one usb connection

pin 1 = +5V
pin 3 = D-
pin 5 = D+
pin 7 = GND

pins 2,4,6,and 8 are another usb connection

pin 2 = +5V
pin 4 = D-
pin 6 = D+
pin 8 = GND

pin 10 is not used

Yes this is a good list of the voltages to be expected from a newer power supply on just the main header

SOURCE: Hooking up Front USB Port

the red wires go on the side that is not missing a pin.
....
.....
in this scenario, 4pin goes on top, 5pin on bottom, red wires on left.
.....
....
in this, 4pin on bottom, 5pin on top, red still on left.
i wont show you the reverse of that because you should understand and i think the formatting on this page will screw it up.

Did you by chance read the instruction manual?

WIRE ASSIGNMENTS

Red: + 5V / Voltage + / VCC
White: D - / Data - / USB -
Green: D + / Data + / USB +
Black: GND / Voltage - / Ground
Black: S-GND / Over Current / Shielding

The S-GND wire is fatter and can be easily recognized. The connection of S-GND wire to the header pin is optional.

Diagram 1: On most motherboards, the USB header/pin-out consists of 9 pins arranged in 2 rows, which allows for 2 USB connections (i.e. USB1 and USB2). Normally, the pins for USB1 and USB2 are in seperate rows.
Diagram 2: Simply plug the connector onto the 5-pins row, and make sure that the pin assignments and wire assignments are matched correctly.
Diagram 3: Alternatively, you can plug the connector onto the 4-pins row, and leave the S-GND wire unconnected.
You might have to rearrange the wires to match with the pin assignments, or change the header connector if necessary, depending on the layout of the USB header.
On some motherboards, there is a NC pin in the USB header. You can connect the S-GND wire onto this pin. NC simply means "no connection" and NC pin is an "empty" pin.
Refer to the diagram below, for 2x5 pins header, simply plug the connector onto one row of the pins, and always make sure that pin assignments and wire assignments are matched correctly. You might have to rearrange the wires if necessary.

Refer to the diagram below, for 2x4 pins header, simply plug the connector onto one row of the pins. Please note that there is no S-GND pin in this header. You can leave the S-GND wire unconnected. You might have to rearrange the wires if necessary, in such that the wire assignments and pins assignments are matched correctly.

ACTIVE PINS NOT IN THE SAME ROW

On some motherboards, the 4 active pins are not located in the same row, as shown in the example below:

To connect to this type of USB header, you need to change the header connector to 2x5. Simply rearrange the wires within the 2x5 connector to match with the pin assignments. If the green wire is connected to the USB2+ pin, the white wire must be connected to the USB2- pin. The red wire can be connected to any +5V pin, and the black (GND) wire to any GND pin. If there is no S-GND pin provided, you can leave the S-GND wire unconnected.

hope it helps

Because there are so many different case and motherboard combinations sometimes it can be difficult following the instructions for connecting the front panel, USB header and audio header.

Below is a few generic guide that should stop some of the confusion with the labels on the wires.

***Please note this is a generic wiring guide and we can not guarantee it will work with every motherboard. Please check your motherboard manual first. Wiring the headers wrong can cause damage to the motherboard and case, this damage is not covered by the warranty***

this maybe easier to follow

However, brand name manufacturers often build proprietary power supplies or make up their own color coding, so I wouldn't throw out a power supply that supplies 5V where you think it should supply 3.3V. It's more likely a proprietary design than a failure.

### Usb not working

front USB ports are an extension of a header on the mainboard, it connects via a bunch on individual pins, if any of these pins are wrong the front USB will not work, but usually this would lock up all USB and the ones on the back will not work either, i would suggest the front USB panel was either not connected at all, or it was conected wrong, usual USB header colors of wores is BLACK, GREEN, WHITE, RED, note all mainboards are different, so the black could start from either side of the header, b sure to refer to your motherboards manual for exact pin loactions on the header
