Motherboard connectors

  Zounds 20:14 06 Feb 2007

Hi i'm currently putting a PC together and i'm stuck with the mobo connectors. I've attached the front audio connectors but there are three connectors still not plugged in and it doesn't look like there's anywhere to plug them. They're R-RET, L-RET and GROUND. I know what ground is for but I already have a ground connector plugged in for the front audio as there is two. Do I need to plug them both in? What are the other two for? Thanks in advance.

these are for the right rear channel audio signal and left rear channel audio signal.

So if your motherboard doesn't support them, it's no great shakes, especially if the front speakers work.

These connectors are only needed if you are using the front audio connectors instead of the rear ones. I've never found this facility to be of any use.
