Too soon bro, too soon.
Mourning the death of my g110 keyboard along with numerous USB flash drives.
A friend of mine is mourning the loss of his phone and ipod though, many devices have been taken by this legacy jack.

I told that mobo who's boss and bent the f***ing pins, **** YEAH!

I was going to send the mobo back and then realised gigabyte did say it was 3x USB power, and then i checked my headers.

Sorry to hear that man. It's so easy to make these mistakes :doh: and I'll keep it in mind but thanks for heads up.

yeah, all the gigabyte boards that I've used so far come with little plastic caps with the type of port written on it so you don't make this mistake.
also, this is why you should upgrade to USB 3.0, then it's damn near impossible to mix those 2 up.
