asus A8N-premium installation question

  [DELETED] 10:44 30 Mar 2006

I am in the process of building my first pc, and have got as far as fitting the above motherboard into the case - Antec P180. The motherboard does support front panel audio, as does the case, but there are a couple of blue plastic covers over some of the pins I need to connect to on the motherboard. Are these jumpers? Can I just remove them? Does anyone know why they are there? The motherboard manual states there is only one jumper on the board to reset the CMOS, on the pic for front panel audio it does show the covered pins as shaded. Can anyone help me please?

blue plastic covers over some of the pins

These are jumpers

Are you sure you are trying to plug into the right position on the board?

I have the MB mentioned and although i don't use the front panel audio, looking at the manual it seems to imply that you only remove the caps when you are connecting the front panel audio leads. I don't think these are jumpers.

Apologies! These are jumper caps and should be removed only if connecting front panel audio leads.

Audio Connector.

There should be a cable leading from the Front Audio Panel of the case and this cable will most likely be split into smaller pins click here

You have to match up the smaller pins to the relevant pins on the Mobo. 2 pins on the Mobo are blocked with blue tabs becuase its unlikely you'll have Lineout sockets. If you do then just remove the tabs.
