    Hi, I just purchased a Gigabyte UD3R motherboard. My computer case is at least 6 years old (don't know make) and many of the connectors don't match description to motherboard.

    Cables for Audio:

    RETURN L (Blue)

    RETURN R (White)

    SPKOUT L (White)

    SPKOUT R (Green)

    GROUND (Black)

    MIC BIAS (Yellow)

    MIC-IN (Pink)

    My case doesn't provide an HD audio module so I need to set it up for AC'97 functionality. The pin set up is as follows
    Pin 1 - MIC

    Pin 2 - GND

    Pin 3 - MIC Power

    Pin 4 - NC

    Pin 5 - Line Out (R)

    Pin 6 - NC

    Pin 7 - NC

    Pin 8 - No Pin

    Pin 9 - Line Out (L)

    Pin 10 - NC

    Really appreciate the help. Thanks!

    Most probably should work by:
    MIC-IN to pin 1,
    MIC BIAS to pin 3,
    GROUND to pin 2,
    SPKOUT R to pin 5,
    RETURN R to pin 6,
    SPKOUT L to pin 9,
    RETURN L to pin 10.

    Please don't mark threads solved if they aren't, less people will wander to the thread if it looks like no further help is needed.
