Just recently got my new computer running, just a quick question:
What are the 2 red plugs for? (they are off the extra USB) I have 2 USB on the back of the computer, and 2 more, with 2 different red leads off of them. What are these? They are right above the extra USB plugs that go near the modem and such.

Just curious!

Are you talking about the 2 headers between the first PCI and AGP slot? Thats for FireWire IEEE1394. I have it disabled in BIOS because I don't have any FireWire devices, but have it hooked up anyways so I don't have any cables laying around unplugged.

It is part of the extra usb ports on the back of the computer. I have the usb hooked up, but there are 2 extra red cables that I do not know what they are.

Are you talking about the USB/Firewire bracket that came with your motherboard? If so, then those are the firewire connectors as t_biggs alluded to. The headers are located between the PCI and AGP slot, as t_biggs said, and you plug the red cables into those two headers. Chapter 3 subsection 13 in the manual explains what to do.
