Help with USB 2.0 headers

My motherboard only has 2 usb 2.0 headers, and I honestly donít remember which was what. I know one of them is for the case IOís two usb 2.0 ports, but I actually canít remember what the other was plugged into, and I donít really want to take it all apart to check, because I forgot to install a Corsair link cable.

My parts are as follows:
Asrock Z370 Pro 4
3TB Seagate HDD
Samsung EVO SSD
Asus Dual Band PCE-AC55BT Wireless Card
NZXT S340 Elite
Corsair H100i V2 closed loop

Anyone know where the other usb 2.0 header might be plugged into?

Most MOBOs of that age will have 2 USB2.0 headers on the motherboard.


Some have 1 x USB 3.0 header, 1 x 2.0USB header.


There will be demarcations on the motherboard that tells you which goes where.

New cases and mobo except the bargain basement ones all should have USB3 front panels/headers.

This mobo, both USB 2.0 is side by side. Your chassis USB port and corsair link cable, both plug next to one another. Here's the pic I taken from Asrock site.
