Where do I plug in AC'97 & HD Audio Front connectors on 890fx board?

Where do I plug in AC'97 & HD Audio Front connectors on 890fx board? It's been a while since I put together a computer. Are the ac 97 and hd audio the same or are they entirely different... thanks

Pretty sure they are different and pretty sure you only should be plugging in one or the other. Just look for a pin alignment or check the lettering on your motherboard to locate the proper spot.

ac 97 is old school. dont use it on any modern mobo.

use the HD audio connector. do you have the manual? it will tell you where it goes on the mobo.

Plug it into your creative soundcard?

You only Plug one of them in... assuming its new software/hardware being used you would use the HD audio.

Location
On your Motherboard its under the PCI_EX5 slot toward the back of the board labeled JAUD1.
Check pages 1-4 and 2-14 of your user manual for more info.

Edit.. Thats info for your SIG RIG MoBo
What MoBo are you looking at?

This. Into your sound card, man. You won't *have* front audio if you connect it to your mobo, and you're using your sound card.
