    I have a coolermaster WaveMaster i think not too sure lol...but i want to connect the front audio panel but its so confusing...i'm not sure if its HD Audio or Legacy AC 97 how do you tell anyways?
    Mobo connectors are;

    HD Audio
    a-sense2_return
    b-port2 L
    c-sense_send
    d-sense1_return
    e-port2 R
    f-presence#
    g-port1 R
    h-GRD
    i-port1 L

    Legacy AC 97
    a-line out_L
    b-line out_R
    c-MIC2_R
    d-AGRD
    e-MIC2_L

    My Case connectors are
    1-R_out
    2-R_RET(on same cable as R_out)
    3-L_out
    4-L_RET(on same cable as L_out)
    5-MIC power
    6-MIC_in
    7-Ground

    Help for you!

    I drew this up based on a case I had hanging around for a friend with an ASUS P5B, we made up the sockets etc for his setup and wired it, worked flawlessly. You of course don't need to build a circuit, but nonetheless the diagram should help you make sense of the connectors.

    The return lines will be used for plug detection, don't worry bout them too much.
