(I probably have posted this thread at the wrong section, so I moved (copied, actually) the thread to "Power Supplies, Cases and Mods" Under the "CPU & Components" section.)

When I use Micro ATX motherboards, it is not a problem at all.

Now that I have an ATX motherboard (MSI 970A-G46) and the JAUD1 connector is at the lower back corner while the HD Audio cable is coming all the way from the top front corner, the cable is about 1/2 to 1 inch too short for me to connect the HD Audio connector to the motherboard's internal audio outlet JAUD1.

What should I do now?

I found the HD Audio and the AC '97 have the same layouts. In other words, they both should be able to fit into the motherboard outlet. Should I plug the AC '97 to the outlet instead of the HD Audio?

Or is there any extension cables for this type of connection?

Thank you for your help!

By the way, the computer case I am using is CoolerMaster Elite 371.

Also, how about the 3rd option: can I leave the front audio un-connected if I don't plan to use the front audio outlets?

Thanks again for any replies.
