Need help with front panel audio wiring

Hi so recently I had my mobo and cpu changed for me and my front panel audio jacks weren't working, I had tried every software based solution and now I decided to open the case and see if the headers are connected and wouldn't you know it - none of the 7 were :D  Unfortunately my mobo's manual isn't clear to where the headers should go, or atleast I can't understand it. Here is a link to the manual (on page 1-21):
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8H61M/#support_Downlo...

and below I'll tell you guys what's on the connectors and their corresponding colour:
GROUND - BLACK (ok this one is pretty obvious but the others aren't)
MIC IN - PINK
MICBIAS - YELLOW
SPKOUTL - WHITE
RETURNR - GREY
SPKOUTR - GREEN
RETURNL - BLUE


I found this on the internet:

It seems plausible, doesn't it? Apparently my front panel audio is AC97, my manual says the mobo supports both ac97 and hd audio so I guess that's not a problem (or is it?), so I'm guessing my GROUND goes to pin2, MIC IN goes into 1, MICBIAS - 3, SPKOUTL - 9, RETURNL - 10, SPKOUTR - 5, RETURNR - 6?
Edit - I found another image basically stating the same thing:

But still can someone who knows more about this than I do tell me to go for it?

PS: My audio is via hd, not realtek, so suggesting to disable front panel detection won't work for me.

Best solution

You can go for it. Good job! my GROUND goes to pin2, MIC IN goes into 1, MICBIAS - 3, SPKOUTL - 9, RETURNL - 10, SPKOUTR - 5, RETURNR - 6?
