Default Building, quick question...

First, I know the picture sucks, but you get the picture.
Ok..................
On the first USB plug it has
VCC
USB 1+
USB 1-
GND

Second USB plug has
VCC
USB 2+
USB 2-
GND

And that last plug next to the plug in the middle, is a single Ground Wire.

Now that blue piece, which I was going to plug these into, then plug into the motherboard has on side...
4 pins that read
+5V
P1-
P1+
GND

And on the other side has
+5V
P2-
P2+
GND
NC

What is the NC? Where do I plug the single ground wire to? Do I need to plug it into anything?

NC means no connection, it's a pin to help show socket orientation


from what I gather your socket is laid out
Code:
5 5
- -
+ +
0 0
  x
but your plugs are laid out

Code:
5
+
-
0
this appears to be backwards? are you sure about this layout?

actually i can see from the photo that your plugs are like this
Code:
5
-
+
0
so you should plug them in so that they are both next to each other with the VCC going to the +5 pin.

and the NC pin should have no connections going to it.

Sorry if I was unclear, but my question is that 3rd plug at the bottom, which is a ground wire plug. Does this need to be plugged into anything? I cant seem to find where it should be plugged into if it does need to be plugged in?
