FRONT PANEL FUN
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.
