ASUS front panel connector

I have an ASUS K8V-VM motherboard with a 10 pin front panel connector.

1. MIC2_L
2. AGND
3. MIC2_R
4. PRESENSE#
5. HP_R
6. MIC2_JD
7. JACK_SENSE
8. NOPIN
9. HP_L
10.HP_HD

My case has wires marked

1. MIC_IN
2. MIC_BIAS
3. RETURN_L
4. RETURN_R
5. SPKOUT_L
6. SPKOUT_R
7. GND

Can you tell which of these goes where.

I can get you part way there. These are the connections I know:

MIC_IN > MIC2_L
MIC_BIAS > MIC2_R
SPKOUT_L > HP_L
SPKOUT_R > HP_R
GND > AGND

That leaves you with two wires
RETURN_L
RETURN_R

The purpose of these two wires, from what I can tell, is to stop the sound going to your speakers when headphones are plugged in. You could try to figure those two out by trial and error.

Good Luck

It still doesn't work.
I'm still stuck with the RETURN_L and RETURN_R.
 
I have the manual but it's no help.

What I have left is
4. PRESENSE#
6. MIC2_JD
7. JACK_SENSE
10.HP_HD

I've tried plugging in RETURN_R to MIC2_JD
and RETURN_L to HP_HD.
It seems the only logical place they can go if I connect as austinstace suggests.

I've figured it out
The settings are as follows:
MIC2_L => MIC_IN
MIC2_R => MIC_BIAS
HP_R => SPKOUT_R
HP_L => SPKOUT_L

AGND => GND
MIC2_JD => RETURN_R
HP_HD => RETURN_L

I then had to disable the front panel jack detection on the configuration for the RealTek HD Manager.

Thanks austinstace. I'll give you the points.

Glad I could help. I was actually just typing that you needed to make some setting changes in your sound software. lol
