I have a newer Gigabyte board with an HD audio head on the board, but no HD audio connectors on the board itself. Does anyone know where an HD connector panel (one that may fit a drive bay) could be obtained or instructions on how to make one? Thanks. ET

Alternatively, most cases have audo jacks on them. Some have only the AC97 (or w/e it is) but some also support HD audio so you may be able to just use that.

If I understand you correctly, your Gigabyte board has HD audio but your case is an older case that uses AC97 (the old audio standard) for its audio headers.

If thats the case, your in luck. Every Gigabyte board I have examined, which is quite a few, allow you to toggle between AC97 and HD audio. And it requires no hardware mods. Take a close look at your motherboard manual for instructions on how this is done.

Too late for the original poster, but maybe useful to those who, like me, came here via Google. The question is quite clear and previous answer quite wrong: "... Does anyone know where an HD connector panel (one that may fit a drive bay) could be obtained?"

There's at least one. now at least: SilverStone FP32B. Has cables for either HD or AC97 (many such devices have inferior AC97 only).

From Amazon in UK and USA. USA entry is more useful as it has many reviews. Price $17, £15.25 delivered (April 12). HTH

You necrobumped a thread for that?
