Fr.and rear MIC and h-phones connectors work simultaneously?
Ok so I've got a Abit nf-7 Motherboard which has two front panel connectors marked as MIC and Headphones. It also has same connectors at the back panel and those two are currently working. So now...
What I'd like to do is to use them both. The back MIC connected to my camera, because this MIC is more sensitive and I don't have to stay close to it when I talk to someone...
...and I'd like to use front connectors for a regular headset for when I know I'm gonna be sitting right in front of my PC.
So the question is... Can I set it up in such a way that I could switch between them by changing "input" from "microphone1" to "microphone2" (because there are those two options available in the "nv mixer control panel".)?
(sorry for a chaotic form of my post, but you guys being a pros, most definitely will know what I have in mind right :D)

This arrangement should apply to both the HD AA/FP or the Standard AC'97 Headers.
the connector is marked F_audio and it is located directly behind the rear facing audio jacks. should be only one plug either marked "hd audio" OR "ac97 audio". some cases are setup for either, but you only need one of them depending on what your motherboard supports.
11) F_AUDIO (Front Audio Connector)
This connector supports either HD (High Definition) or AC97 front panel audio module. If you wish
to use the front audio function, connect the front panel audio module to this connector. Check the pin
assignments carefully while you connect the front panel audio module. Incorrect connection
between the module and connector will make the audio device unable to work or even damage it.
For optional front panel audio module, please contact your chassis manufacturer.
By default, the audio driver is configured to support HD Audio. To connect an AC97 front panel
audio module to this connector, please refer to the instructions on page 72 about the software

The front 3mm ports are for mic input / headphones output. The pin connectors are as follows. You need to use the JAudio header, which are in the lower-right corner of the motherboard closest to the front of the case when it's installed.
This header has 14 pins, and allows user to connect the front audio out put cable with the PC front panel. It will disable the output on back panel audio connectors. Within this header, pin 1 is in the lower left corner, and pin 14 is in the upper right corner, like this:
2 ... ... ... 14 1 ... .. ... 13
The pinouts are:
1 Mic in/center 2 Ground 3 Mic power/Bass 4 Audio power 5 Right line out/Speaker out Right 6 Right line out/Speaker out Right 7 Reserved 8 Key 9 Left line out/Speaker out Left 10 Left line out/Speaker out Left 11 Right line in/Rear speaker Right 12 Right line in/Rear speaker Right 13 Left line in/Rear speaker Left 14 Left line in/Rear speaker Left
FR stands for Front Right, FL for Front Left, RR for Rear Right and RL for rear left. These are speakers connections. You need a convertr cable to connect your headphones with your PC. After getting cable, connect it with FR and FL or RR and RL pair. Your headphone will be working. Similarly get the cabl for Mono to Stereo Mic and you can connect your mic too.

Hi there. Get a strong flashlight and a magnifying glass (if you have one). On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be
marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should
be marked PWR_SW. On some boards there are no colours but the markings are the same, so a good close look. Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>
Please post back with the results and any more advice if needed.
Are there FRONT audio jacks you are trying to connect your headphones/mic ?
Dit it work before ?
First install all (incl. audio) drivers and try to get audio from BACK connectors (Green is speakers/headphones, Pink is Mic.)
If it workson on REAR, but not on FRONT connectors, check if you have another icon for AUDIO settings in Control panel and try to set FRONT audio settings.
Check if FRONT audio connectors are connected to your motherboard.
The model number for your Abit motherboard is incorrect (Abit doesn't list one with it). I think I might have found what you really have, though. If so, the power LED attaches to the opposite side of the speaker connector, which is next to another set of headers. You should see it notated as such on the MB, too.
Feel free to take a look at it, and see if it matches what you have:
