Hi,
I built a computer two weeks ago with the antec 1200 case. I built in a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R MB. Everything important works fine, but I have a bit trouble with the audio. I somehow didn't find any audio cables from the front panel that i could connect to the MB. I would guess that they either somehow got forgotten or they are just hidden behind the front panel where i can't reach them (so they didn't pull the cable to the accessible part). So is there a way i can open up the cover so i can have a look at it? And are that also cables that you connect just next to the pw button, reset button, ... on the motherboard, or are that some other cables that go there?
I have another easier question too. A computer normally makes such a "beep" noise when you start it up or you get somekind of an error message. This beep comes from inside the computer as far as i know. However, i somehow just don't get this beep sound. Is it possibly switched off in the bios or somewhere? This beeb is created normally by the MB isn't it?
Thanks for your help!

Beeps is "old school"....nowadays we have LED's or LCD "posters" :) 

As to the 1200, see page 4 of your Antec manual. The wires come down from the top of the case and plug into the lower right hand corner of your MoBo (when in case and case standing).

Remove your side panels and maybe the top bay cage and my guess is you will find your wires.

Ok, thanks. i'll have a look. it's just strange that all cables except the audio cables were accessible.

Neither the Antec case nor the Gigabyte motherboard include the system (sometimes called the "case") speaker. In the old days, say a few years ago, it was always part of the case itself.

If you case or motherboard didn't come with a system speaker you can buy one here: http://www.cwc-group.com/casp.html

A case speaker is invaluable for troubleshooting.
