Does the case determine whether the front panel audio connectors are hd or ac97?

Hi, I'm still using my old 2006 case though with new parts, I didn't actually put them together myself, I had them put for me, but both my audio and mic front jacks don't seem to be working, I tried most software based solutions, nothing worked so now I'm thinking of opening the case to see if it is connected, I did some research and I found out that the front audio connector is either ac97 or hd, so I want to know if those come with the case or the mobo, if it's with the case then probably mine are ac97 since it's a 2006 ordinary case, if it's with the mobo it's probably gonna be hd since it's a newer motherboard, or atleast that's what I'm thinking. Or if it can't be determined that way, how can I spot the visual difference between them? I'm asking because I wanna know whether to enable hd audio or ac97 in fpanel settings in my bios and my sound manager (via hd). Oh I almost forgot this is my motherboard

Its the motherboard that makes the determination. You want to use HD audio for that motherboard as its listed in the specifications from your link.
