I am having difficulty connecting the front my add-on front-panel audio connector to my ASUS M3N78 MB. My case had no FP connections at all so I went to the local PC shop and purchased a 3rd-party 5-1/4" "all in one" panel which happened to include front-panel audio out. The add-on panel is so generic that I can't even find a manufacturing or distributing company identifier anywhere on the box or the "instructions".
My ASUS MB supports HD audio and AC '97. The add on box and instructions say the panel supports "6.1ch audio". I will admit up-front that I don't build enough machines or care enough about A/V specs to know the difference between 6.1 and AC '97 and whether what the front-panel calls 6.1ch can be construed as HD audio. Anyway, since there are exactly 9 front-panel single-pin connectors and exactly 9 pins on the AAFP header on the MB I thought I'd see if anyone could help me connect the two...
The panel's single-pin conector diagram has the pins labeled as follows:
The ASUS AAFP pin assignments are:
THe ASUS AC'97 pin assignments are:
Line out R
Line out L
Do I have any hope of getting front-panel audio or should I just tie off the connectors and move on?
