Help with Carbide 500r: where/what is this cable?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi, just a quick question/favor to ask of you guys, I hope you all don't mind, but I'd appreciate the help.

I recently got this new case for my new build and I finished it about a week ago.. But now I realize that the front panel's headphone/mic ports don't work and it's probably because I didn't plug the plugs into my motherboard but..

I don't think I've even seen the loose cables. I remember seeing a 4 pin molex for the fans, the USB 3.0, the weird fan adapter connector that goes to the huge side fan, and the 6 separate pins that operate the power button/leds/etc...but nothing else. Can someone please post a picture of what the connector looks like so I can see if I can hunt it down? Would greatly appreciate it.

If not, should I RMA for the front panel? One of the USB 3.0 ports doesn't work either but I think it just needs a reseat on the mobo..

Thanks in advance!

The Green and Pink ports use the wire with a rainbow cord, like this, except there should be another connector attached to it, so one cord with two heads.

That's a photo of the front panel audio connectors from my 600T. I'd imagine your Carbide 500 would be the same.

Ah there you go, exactly that cable there. See if you can find it, or maybe to plugged it in already?

Oh by the way, you need to use the head that says "HD Audio", not the other one.

Ooh yeah that sparked it. I DID see that one, and I did plug it into the port that read HD Audio on my mobo.

That probably explains the reason my realtek audio manager sees both parts and they are highlighted too, see the picture: http://puu.sh/18F0A

But whenever I plug in something, the computer doesn't recognize it. No pop up saying "jack has been plugged in" or something to that effect... I'm beginning to think this might have to do with several drivers that I may not have installed into the mobo because they seemed superfluous.. Or maybe it could be something else I'm not sure anymore >.>

Did you plug in the head with "HD Audio" on it, or the other one dangling off?

Sorry for not posting, been busy for the last few days frown.gif

The HD audio plug is what I plugged into the mobo. I recall it only being able to fit in one way to my mobo so I don't think I missed plugging it into the socket.. Plus it seems like my computer is recognizing it...just..not recognizing things I'm plugging in..hm..

Drivers perhaps?

Was what I was thinking but.. I installed the sound drivers for the mobo..that's how I got realtek in the first place o.o

Update: found the problem. And I feel silly about it too.

Didn't realize that realtek sees the front panel as "always on" so there is no jack input message... They however, were all silenced, mic and headphones and all.

The only problem is now, I have to manually disable the sound from the rear jacks if I want to just use my front panels. Thanks anyway though for all the help, really appreciate it!
