FRONT PANEL FUN

Maximum PC - - BASICS BUILD GUIDE -

SO, YOU’VE GOT THE PSU IN­STALLED, and all the ca­bles out of the back, so now it’s time to plug in all the front panel con­nec­tors. Usu­ally on the bot­tom-right of the mother­board, you’ll find a se­lec­tion of pin-outs to which you can at­tach the con­nec­tors. Your mother­board man­ual will tell you which con­nec­tor needs to go where, but usu­ally on the mid-range op­tions and above, those de­tails are ac­tu­ally writ­ten on the mother­board it­self as well. With the MasterBox, the front panel con­nec­tors come bunched up on a group of wires, all at­tached to­gether—you can pull these apart and sep­a­rate them slightly to give you some lever­age to plug them into the cor­rect po­si­tion. It’s also a good time to plug the au­dio pass-through (lo­cated bot­tom­left), the USB 2.0 header (check the pin slots on each plug, so you don’t get con­fused with the au­dio pass-through), and the USB 3.0 header into the mother­board.
