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.
Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...) http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket939/A8N-SLI/e2024_a8n-sli.pdf
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).
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
It is Asus P5S800-VM motherboard. Download the manual from Asus, click the link provided; http://www.asus.com/Search.aspx?SearchKey=P5S800-VM You'll need to download and install Adobe reader to view the manual; http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/ 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; http://www.cablestogo.com/product.asp?cat_id=2009&sku=40422 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.
To identify the solution of front panel of audio code,note that AC97 and HD audio devices are different,and may not be directly compatible.If there is a cable connected to the pin 4 then it is HD audio.If there is no cable connected to pin 4 then it is AC97.
