Links aren't live. If your motherboard has HD audio, use the HD connector on the front panel audio cable to connect to the board's front panel audio jack. If the board does not have HD audio, use the other connector to connect to the board's audio jack. If the case's front panel cable has only one connector, it is likely analog, and will not function properly with HD audio on the motherboard.

I looked at the links and I do not know what is going on.

The case wiring shows an 8 pin ( 2X4) connector. The motherboard audio is a 9 pin connector in a 5X2 shape.

I suspect that you are recycling a non-standard case.

You can download most motherboard manuals and many case manuals from the internet.

So ... What motherboard and case are you using?
