Connecting front panel audio

by blaisadam / December 19, 2007 2:57 PM PST

I'm not sure how to connect the front panel audio on my case to my Asus M2NPV-VM motherboard. The motherboard manual lists two different layouts: one for Azalia-compliant pin definition and one for Legacy AC'97-compliant pin definition.

For the Azalia, the labels are:

GND
PRESENCE#
SENSE1_RETUR
SENSE2_RETUR
PORT1L
PORT1R
PORT2R
SENSE_SEND
PORT2L

For the AC'97 compliant:

AGND
MIC2
MICPWR
Line out_R
Line out_L

The labels on my case connector don't match any of these. They are:

GND
MIC-IN
MIC-BIAS
SPKOUT L
SPKOUT R
RETURN L
RETURN R

The ground is obvious, but other than that the mic and speaker connections are confusing me.
