680i where do I connect these cables?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Howdy, I am working on my first build and at the moment I am stumped on where to connect three cables.

1. "Speaker" red and black twisted cable. belongs to the case speaker.
2. "Micro SW" white and black twisted cable. goes to a button that is pressed on by the cases' removable side door.
3. Black thin cable connects to my Samsung CD/DVD writer. I believe it is sound for the writer.

I have a Thermaltake Armor case and a EVGA 680i MB.

Thank you for any help you can give me!

PS. As you can see, I am still missing Ram and Graphics card. Both I will buy in the next two weeks. next pay day =)

The speaker though connect to the Front Panel connectors. (Should be the 'Top right', check the manual)

The Micro SW connects to the case security if your mobo supports it, also check the manual.

THe CD/DVD writer cable either connects to your sound card, or the sound connector on your mobo.

Ha, I guess all in all, read your mobo manual.

Case security connector is at the bottom underneath the last pci slot, there is no speaker connector as the board has a built in speaker near the security connector, however if you open your case a lot like I do I recommend you leave that off, the audio cable is not needed anymore as all modern dvd drives have audio through the parallel cable.

Found the case security Thx! I could not find it anywhere in the Manual.

No speaker Connector and no audio connector on this board! ah no wonder I could not find on MB itself or the Manual.

Thx for clearing this up for me! And thx for the quick replies everyone. =)
