Connecting 8RDA USB header to Lian-Li Case
Firstly, I have read the FAQ!
I've connected all 9 wires of the 8RDA USB header to my Lian-Li PC6087 case's front portsas per the manual and Epox website FAQ, and they don't work (won't even recognise a simple device like a game pad), though the four rear ports have always worked from the start.
Recently, whilst fitting a CDR to a friend's machine that was built by someone else, I noticed the 9th wire (Overshield) wasn't connected to their mobo (in this case an ABit unit), and his ports worked. I came home and unplugged the 9th wire from mine without changing any of the others and mine started working too. However, running them without a wire marked "Voltage Overshield" is a bit too much like asking for trouble to me. Can anyone shed any light on this?

That was quick!! Thanks, I just didn't want to fry my Mobo. Is 8 wires OK with any device (I'm thinking of high drain devices like ADSL modems and scanners), or is it safer to stick to gamepads and mains powered devices?
