  1. Hi, i just installed a new zalman hsf for my cpu and decided i wanted another go at making my front panel audio jacks work.

    From the panel i have wires labeled: R-RET, L-RET MIC-POWER, MIC-IN, L-OUT, R-OUT, GROUND, GROUND.

    The pins on my motherboard are labeled: (starting from top left, going anti-clockwise) Mic, MicB, LOR, (unlabeled pin), LOL, INL, (gap), INR, A5V, RGND

    When i originally bought my case i tried a couple of ways of connecting them but neither worked. If anyone has any ideas or knows how i should connect everything together it would be much appreciated. Thanks

    oh yeah, perhaps i should say that all the cables aren't stuck together like they probably should be so i need to match the wires and pins up :D if that makes sense

    Just an observation but USUALLY the Line out is like LO so LLo = left line out (or Lol would be left out line).

    R-ret would be Right return (or right line in [rli or inr].
