related to audio. Maybe for front audio jacks.

referring to speaker leads:

lret = left return

rret = right return

Some people call return, ground.

You failed to put commas

after each, thus didn't notice them.

I need more info, are these four wires part of a group of wires??? Are they for the jacks on the top or the front of the case??? Possibly part of a group of four for the front USB port?

At this point, I have no idea about the + and the minus when related to sound outputs. Possibly for an LED but a pure guess.

Notice the similar names?

There are other pin diagram links on the lower end of that page. Combine these explanations with the case and motherboard manual (hopefully very close to English) and it might become obvious to you by process of elimination.

Good luck!

i just connected the connectors any kind. and the computer was able to boot up fine and the installation went ok. only i dont think the front panel stuff works (audio ports) but thats bout it.

oh ya evga quality not too good as their dvi-vga dongle was bent and couldnt fit.
