    Hello. The short of this is that I am having problems with 2 things in setting up my MIC and EAR for the front panel of my case. There is a GND wire from the case wire that I do not know where to put which is from the EAR phone wires and I'm confused about: MIC VCC or +5v for the MIC-VCC. I think what I have layed out below is so far correct. I have more detailed info below:

    I have an ASUS A7N8X E-deluxe motherboard ( http://tinyurl.com/3el2g ) which I am trying to connect to the front panel for Microphone and Headphone of my Sky Hawk case ( http://tinyurl.com/786rg ) . On page 2-26 or reader page 46 of the manual it says: front panel audio connector (10-1 pin FP_AUDIO and I have to remove the jumper pins. Now the motherboard pins are setup:

    Motherboard pins setup from left to right:

    Line out R__BLINE OUT R
    Line out L__BLINE out L

    And the CASE wires are:

    MIC (bunched together)

    Mic IN

    EAR (bunched together):

    Ear L1___Ear L2
    Ear R1___Ear R2

    I have a few guesses but I have to say I am a little confused.

    So it should be:
    MICPWR or +5V =MIC VCC

    Line out R =Ear R1
    BLINE out R=Ear R2

    Line out L = Ear L2
    BINE out L = Ear R2


    so that leaves a choice of MIC VCC or +5v for the MIC-VCC AND one ground wire with no pin if I am looking at this right. THe motherboard has 9 pins (but 1 is NC) and the case has 8 wires for the MIC and EAR. So the only thing that is left is the confusion around the (MICPWR----+5VA) and the lonely GND wire for the EAR phones. But that should about do for the most part.
