Bundles 1 & 2 are for USB connections and Bundle 3 is for speaker and mic connections. Must be a cheap case not to have the wires already in the proper plugs so they can just plug into the motherboard. The motherboard manual should have a diagram of the corisponding connections on the motherboard.

yeah... it is a cheap case :(  $37 at CMI Computers.

At this point I wish I had a case as you described.

Here is the motherboard:

On the top right side of the board there are 3 Blue USB plugs and on the bottom right side there is a green plug. Are these used for the 3 bundles of chassis wires?

I forgot to mention that the ASUS P5Q manual's chassis diagram does not match the chassis wire labels that I listed in my first post which is why all the confusion is present. If anyone has experienced this and knows how I should match up the cables... please help.

Thanks in advance for all of your help.
