Just doing a new build at the mo. Have an Asus case with front panel audio - headphone and mic. Have connected this to (hopefully) correct pins (JAUD1) as outlined in mobo diagram. However, I don't get any sound or mic input. I do have a soundblater live 5.1 card connected and thats fine - can connect headphones to there no probs, but front panel audio just doesnt work. Have got power and the 2 usb ports working on it. Can you have a sound card and the front audio at same time?
i do want to use the Soundblaster Live audio card but also be able to get audio to the headphone and mic in socket in the front panel.
To 007al - there are 2 sets of pin connectors on the card, I think designed to connect to a proprietary soundcard I/O front panel device. Doesnt match up with the connector coming from the case front panel.
Does this mean that front panel audio can only be used with onboard sound?
