View Full Version : Noob question... USB

29-07-2012, 12:38 PM
Ok, maybe Im sick or just damned tired... but I can't for the life of me remember the following...

4034I have a front USB port with this type of connection
4035 My motherboard is similar to this

Question: what do I do with the extra GND connector?
And can I get away with connecting the 2 plugs on the same motherboard connection? Or does the extra GND need to be connected on the N/C ?

I figure better to look dumb and ask the question than blow a mobo .. I do remember that screwing this part up can be costly

The "spare" gnd are not needed, leave them off or if you want to be tidy, use a wiretie and fold/tie to the cable.
