The connector on XO-4 B1 motherboards is a bit further in than it should
be.  You might not be able to establish a reliable connection to it without
increasing the size of the opening in the case.

The connector on XO-4 C1 motherboards has been moved a bit further out.

In terms of using the smaller connector, for users upgrading motherboards,
there has been discussion about including an adapter to make the existing
hole for a third USB port micro HDMI-size.  I have not seen one of these
adapters yet so I cannot comment much about it.
