Thread: Case Front Panel Audio Dont Match Audio Header

  1. #1
    i bought a cheap case from a site called amamax.com (great service) and the front audio wires dont match w/ the pins for the header in the manual for my mobo . and the audio header (is that whats its called?) on my also cheap mobo has the a jumper cap (or whatever its called lol) on pin 7 and 8. should i just do the old "guess and check" method?

    This can be a great pain in the ass. I recently built a pc for my cousin and i had this same problem.

    The best way is to find out what each pin is on both the motherboard and the case by looking up the pin layout for the motherboard and the case on google.

    You could connect them while the pc is on playing an mp3 with trial and error. (bro did this) but only do it if you a sure you can do this because if you short your board out then your fucked.

    Can you be more specific?
    What board do you have and can you find a link to the manual so we can see the header arrangment?
    Are the connectors from your case front all single pin connectors (God, I HATE those things&#33?

    What connections are you trying to make? I'm guessing mic, headphones and maybe USB?

    Well the good news is that none of these connectors are actively powered so I think that worst that can happen is the plugs won't work.
    The bad news is it looks like a "plug and pray" situation to me.

    Has the board already been installed in the case?
    When I built mine I hooked everything up on the bench first.
    It was alot easier and faster to fiddlefuck around with those ridiculous single pin connectors when I could actually see and get my chubby hands to them. At least that way you will know that it is possible to make the little buggers work before you get too far along.

    Im almost positive it will POST without the CPU, but you will get the beep errors saying that you dont have one in, and you cant go any further.
