  1. I just cant seem to figure out how these pins will connect onto my motherboard hd audio pins.

    wires from case front panel are:

    MIC IN®
    GND


    MIC POWER (L)
    (single orange wire)


    LINE OUT RL
    LINE OUT FL


    LINE OUT FR
    LINE OUT RR

    Pic Of Wires from case:

    I have no idea on how to connect these pins, the case manual is confusing to me.
    if anyone could help it will be much appreciated. thanks.

    This has been a tough task for many of us... Just keep trying connections. You might get lucky

    One thing,
    with the wires you have coming from the front panel you have to use the AC97 configuration only

    On many motherboards the AC97 and the HD sound share headers... Try connecting the AC97 front panel wires to the HD header using only pins 1-7

    if i take the wires out of the other plugs (case wires) and plug them into the new one any chance of it working?
