  1. Best answer
    You want to connect HDA Panel, which is your HD Audio.
  2. Ok thank you, May I ask what the difference between the AC97 and HDA Panel is? I probably shouldnt be trying to put a computer together if I cant answer these questions myself eh? >< lol
  3. I also have one more question, the board is SATA6 and I mistakenly purchased a SATA3 HDD. Are the SATA Cables and ports backwards compatible?
  4. Yes... SATA III connectors are backwards compatible with SATA II.
