  1. i recently purchased a Sapphire pure innovation M/B and an Antec case and want to connect the front audio lead from the case to the M/B
    however it doesnt work so i am guessing the pin allignment is not compatible between the m/b and the case. the wires i have on each are;

    on the Front audio lead from the case;

    MIC VCC
    SPKOUT L
    SPKOUT R
    RETURN L
    RETURN R
    GND

    and on the M/B the pins are labbeled as;

    PORT 1L
    GND
    PORT 1R
    PRESENCE
    PORT 2R
    SENSE1_RETIRN
    SENSE_SEND
    KEY
    PORT 2L
    SENSE2_RETIRN

    MY QUESTION IS WHICH ONE OF THE LEADS GOES ON WHICH PIN ON THE M/B PLEASE HELP I KEEP HAVING TO PULL MY ENTIRE DESK OUT TO USE HEADPHONES :s

    Try to search for the motherboard's manual. The pin alignment is there itself.

    I've the alignment for the intel mobo, but seems it can be of no help to you.

    The pins listed at the bottom are the pins as listed in the motherboard manual the top list is the names of the pins from the case all i need to know is which one from the top list goes on which from the bottom, hope this makes the question clearer

    all the connections are listed, the list is what each wire does;

    MIC VCC
    SPKOUT L
    SPKOUT R

    PORT 1L
    GND

    PRESENCE
    PORT 2R
    SENSE1_RETIRN
    SENSE_SEND
    KEY
    PORT 2L
