Need Motherboard S/PDIF Header Cable

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have a motherboard with a header for S/PDIF but it didn't come with a bracket. Can you buy these anywhere?

First I'd check on the Motherboard's MFR's site to see if they sell this as an accessory. If not:

1. Harvest a two-pin LED cable from an old case.
2. Cut off the LED.
3. Get a threaded through mount RCA jack from Rat Shack.
4. Drill a hole for the jack in a spare blank L-bracket, mount the Jack.
5. Solder the white wire of your cable to the RCA Jack's ground, the coloured wire to the center.
6. Mount and plug in. Careful to put the white wire on the ground pin.

Ok, Thanks for the advice. I will leave that as a last resort. Will any manufacturers S/PDIF cable work?

Be careful what you ask for because you don't want an SPDIF cable for this job. You just want a standard header cable with enough strands for however many pins the header has.

An actual SPDIF cable is either Digital Coaxial or Optical.
