I connected the case USB 3.0 to the motherboard's 3.0 header (royal blue). Then I connected the case USB 2.0 to the motherboard's Internal 2.0 header. The SFF board doesn't have that one. In the lower left you'll see the 19 pin header for the Front Panel. That includes everything other than the front USB 3.0 ports. There's really no way I know of to connect the case's USB 2.0 and headphone.mic connections to that. It would be excessively complicated and difficult to do. The pins have a non-standard 2mm pitch which creates the problems. It's very simple to do it the way I did.Looking at the motherboard layout, when you say USB 3 is hooked up to your case, but I’m confused about the USB 2 ports in the photo of the top of the case that are listed as working. What connection is happening there?
For the front I/O, if you were to purchase a spare one off of eBay for example, would it be possible to cut back enough material to expose the pins and connect to the case I/O using standard DuPont connectors? Is there anything (sizing or spacing) that would impede that? If it were to work, it would allow you to use the headphones and all other I/O, correct?
