Question about Matsonic 8328E (MS8328E) Motherboard

1 Answer



I need to connect the front plate audio cable pins to the MB.

My motherboard is ms8308e. I assume the audio pinouts will be the same as the ms8328e (if they exist).

There are 5 pins on my MB in an inverted n shape, bottom left is pin 1.

How do i connect the 5 individual mic-in/l-out/grd/r-out/grd connectors to this MB pin arrangement.

The manual mentions the connector but does not attempt to identify the pins.

Hope you can help. Steve.

Can't find the second set of pins for my USB drive

According to the manual, if you have front panel USB, use the pin set labeled USB3 for these connections. The USB3 connector is located between PCI slot 1 and 2. If you are already using this for the connector labeled 1394....1394 is for FIREWIRE interface and this mainboard does not appear to support it. Be careful of that connection unless you are absolutely sure of yourself.

I don't know how to plug in the wires for the ASUS a8n sli deluxe motherboard

Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...)

You want to look at pages 27-35, they describe what you need to plug into the motherboard. Basically make sure you have connected:

1) 24-pin power cable (from power supply)
2) 4-pin power cable (for CPU from power supply)
3) Any case fans with 3/4 pin connectors.
3) hard drives (SATA or IDE)
4) USB front panel ports
5) Audio front panel ports
6) Case plugs (power LED, hdd LED, power switch, and reset switch).

Installed gigabit MB new power supply, all new parts and only get flashing lights on the optical drive on boot up any ideas what i could be doing wrong ?

1. Check whether two power connectors are connected (one is 20 pin and the other 4 pin)
2. Remove all FRONT USB, Audio, HDD, CDRom and other connections on motherboard, except the power button connection now turn on.
3. If still does not, instead of Power button use reset button connection for Power button and try.
4. Check whether proper memory supporting type is installed in proper direction, try putting in another slot.
5. Change the SMPS eventhough it may be powering on.
6. Check the Motherboard by keeping it externally taking precautions.

How do I hook up the 2 audio outputs from CD-ROM on Intel D101GGC

You shouldn't need to connect audio connections from drives to the motherboard unless you are using A Win 9x operating system. Digital Audio Extraction is used for WinXP and later and the analog cables are no longer needed

Sorry no info on the pinouts

How to connect audio from motherboard p5s800

It is Asus P5S800-VM motherboard. Download the manual from Asus, click the link provided;
You'll need to download and install Adobe reader to view the manual;

Turn to page 1-29. Section 11. Front panel audio connector (10-1 pin FP_Audio1). Notice there are two jumpers. One across pins 9 and 10. Another across pins 5 and 6. Pin one is marked, AGND and pin two is marked MIC2. ECT.
This is default setting when using the rear audio jacks. You can not run rear audio and front audio at the same time. (So pick one or the other). To run front case audio remove the jumpers and connect the I/O cables to the FP_Audio1 pins. There is a work around. You can buy an adapter that will split the audio from the rear allowing you to connect secondary audio and mic ports. Open the link provided;
You can buy these locally. To connect the FP_Audio remove the jumpers and connect the I/O cable to FP_audio pins. Use Adobe reader and zoom in. You'll find each pin is marked.

Sound cable connection

Look more closely at your motherboard, for a 4-pin "PC Speaker" label.

The "HD Audio" is _OUTPUT_ (left front, sub-woofer, right front, left back, right back) to Surround Sound speakers.
