Frontx panel audio, AC97?!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm actually very confused about this, I bought a 5 1/2 bay from FRONTX mostly because I can't mod anything much so it was just easier to get that. Anyhow I wanted to have 2 options, onboard or xonar d1 so I figured getting this I could connect to the onboard audio header. After looking at it the thing is AC97, the thing here says http://www.frontx.com/cpx110.html

I can't make any sense of it, is the jack AC97 or what? Why would they include a jack for AC97 but not HD audio? I am confused.....

So the jack will work with the header but I'd have to match it to my motherboards header, ok. And it's backwards compatible so would not be AC97? or what? Can I rewire it to be HD audio instead?

ok well thanks

You can rewire it.

The same pins. The difference between AC'97 and HD Audio is pin 4, 6, 7 and 10. Remember that Pin 8 Key is missing on the motherboard.

HD Audio Pin Assignment: | AC'97 Pin Assignment is as follows:
Code:
1 Mic Left in            | 1 Mic Left In
2 Ground                 | 2 Ground
3 Mic Right in           | 3 Mic Right in
4 GPIO                   | 4 No Connection
5 Right line in          | 5 Right Line In/Speaker Right
6 Jack Sense             | 6 Connected to pin 5
7 Front Sense            | 7 No Connection
8 Key                    | 8 Key
9 Left line in           | 9 Left Line In /Speaker Left
10 Jack Sense            | 10 Connected to pin 9

There is a thread discussing this here.

Help me figure it out, look here at the attachment it's the mobo's audio header. The header on the frontx connection makes no sense to me, it doesn't look anything like those =/ wth 1.JPG 22k .JPG file

The page you linked with the product information has the pin outs. Just scroll down.
