The connections should be at the bottome of the board (below the GPU, above the PSU). There's a series of pins there that you plug everything into. You really should read the board's manual. It will tell you where everything is.

It should have support for two case USB ports. Did you plug them both in?

Ah. I was thinking you meant you had one USB port working...

The board only supports up to two USB ports (one cord).

I believe there are expansion cards you can put in that will use this (like this card), but to be honest, I've never used them so I can't speak to how well they work.

That one has two internal headers. If I'm not mistaken, the case has a total of 4 USB ports (and some others). Each header can support two USB ports, so with the motherboard, you should have support for a total of 6 ports, which is more than the case has.

I only saw one too, but the specs listed two. Again, the add on cards are getting out of my expertise, so there might only be one or there might be two...

Did you plug in the supplied pci expansion card for the usb? blue plug?
I found this as well, clearly points out your usb headers

Ok, I'm seeing two usb headers on the picture above, Personally I would plug the card reader into one of those and decide which of the two usb's on the case I didnt need as much, and plug in the one that I would want more.
One case usb
Card reader
One case usb,not plugged in
I cant see any other way around the problem sorry man

Hi there,

Your solutions is to buy a NZXT INTERNAL USB EXPANSION (IU01) Kit.

I've recently bought a Rampage III Extreme and a Cooler Master 932 HAF, it was a bit late to realise that there were only 1 USB connector on the motherboard and two connectors for the case.

Did some research on the internet and found the NZXT INTERNAL USB EXPANSION (IU01) product.

It's basically an extension board, which allows you to plug in 3 USB 2.0 connectors and 2 USB ports and one single USB connector that plugs to your motherboard's front panel USB connector.

Have a look on the internet and you'll see what I mean, there are all the required parts in the kit and works like a charm.

Currenlt running a Rampage 3 Extreme with a 932 HAF casing and having all my front panel ports connected and working.

:-)

Cheers
