Hello and thank you for choosing so those PINs labeled jusb1-2 usb 2 are just for the Front Panel USB ports..SO, when the computer is all closed up, and the front of the computer case is facing you have any USB ports on it? If not then you dont need to worry about those PINs....just leave them alone..However...if you DO have USB ports on the Front of the computer, then there shoudl be a cable INSIDE the computer that connects to the USB ports on the front....and its THAT cable that would connect to the motherboard PINs..Does all that make sense?
