Default HD Front Panel Audio Pin Differences?

Hi everyone!

I am asking for advice before plugging in the computer cas HD audio jack into the motherboard audio jack.

There seems to be a slight difference and I do not want to destroy anything on my motherboard.

Here are the differences:

Thermal Take M9 computer case HD audio pin configuration:

1 MIC2_L
2 GND
3 MIC2_R
4 ACZ_DET
5 LINE2_R
6 FSENSE1
7 FAUDIO_JD
8 No Pin
9 LINE2_L
10 FSENSE2

HD Front Panel Audio for the Gigabyte Motherboard ep45-ud3p
1 MIC2_L
2 GND
3 MIC2_R
4 -ACZ_DET
5 LINE2_R
6 GND
7 FAUDIO_JD
8 No Pin
9 LINE2_L
10 GND

Notice the differences in pins 6 and 10. Ground vs. FSENSE1 and FSENSE2.

Can anyone tell me if this is safe to plug in or should I modify something here?

Please help me someone!

Thanks,

Soar

Yes you can plug that in, no worries there.

Soulphire,

Can you help me understand what the FSENSE1 and FSENSE2 represent. And are you certain connecting it to a ground will not damage my system?

Thanks,

Soar

They're Mic and Line out triggers. And yes I'm absolutely certain it won't damage your system.
