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
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.
