There should be a connector in the bottom left had corner about 2-3" from the bottom of the board. You will connect either the hd audio or the ac'97. From the pictures it appears to be a white connector. It will be labeled with something saying audio.

One is for HD audio and one is for analog. You don't to use it for anything.

You can either let it dangle or tie it back. You shouldn't cut the unused AC'97 off.
