Did you read your manuals? The motherboard and the case both have manuals that explain this. I am looking at your motherboard manual now and it is clear. What is the make and model of the case?

OK I can't find that manual as their web presence is a page saying underconstruction but I do have a picture via newegg.

I see 2 usb ports, a mic port, a headphone port, a hd led, a power led, a power button, and a reset button. confirm that this all correct please.

The spkout is probably the headphone connectors (l and r)
The mic bias is the microphone connector
The Return could be your power button or reset button
but that leaves your hd led and power led. and reset button/power button

You may have to look at the wires on the connection switches to see which is which.

Ok this is my guess unfortunately it is just a guess.

From the mb From the case
Mic l- 1 Return l
Ground-2 Ground
Mic r-3 Return r
Nc-4
Head phone r -5 Spkout r
Mic detection -6 Mic bias
Sense send -7
No pin-8
Head phone l-9 Spkout l
Head phone detection-10 Mix in



If that doesn't work test your headphones in your mic port. The detection ones are the ones I am not sure about.

Ok found some help

Your case is AC 97


MIC IN = MIC
MIC BIAS = MIC PWR
Return L = None
Return R = none
GND = GND
SpkrOUT L = Line out (L)
SpkrOUT R = Line out (R)

You might have to set the setting in Bios to AC 97 for it to work.

How will I set the settings in BIOS like enable it or something because I already did that but I'm going to try that configuration

In the bios under the audio section there should be the AC97 or High Definition (HD) audio. Your connections are AC97. Sometimes there is nothing and you set it through the OS.

Sorry I made a mistake. Whether you are AC97 or HD audio depends on your motherboard. Your motherboard has the Chipset integrated by RealtekĀ® ALC887
installed on it which is HD audio. The pinouts are the same. The difference is in the Bios you select High definition Audio. You install the Realtek drivers HD audio from your mb disc or get them off of the MB Manufacturer;s website. Then you should have a RealTek Audio Manager. After that it should work

You should be able to change your bios to reflect the front panels from your case are from the AC97 timeframe. Only you will be able to tell me though since I do not have that mb or bios.
