Exclamation In Need Of Immediate Attention!!!

HELP!!! I'm building my own computer, I bought a bfg nVIDIA nFORCE 680i SLI motherboard, and a case from ThermalTake. I got all the way finished with it accept one thing: the headphone wires don't match up with the 5x2 on the motherboard set aside for the Front Audio connection. They say things like presence j and port 2 R. This completly doesn't match the L SPEAKER IN and GROUND on the wires from the case. Does anyone know what presence j means in this instance?

i had the same problem but it didnt really apply to me as i have an x-fi anyway. i never really found a solution on this. im sure sumone else here should no. i always assumed the audio plugs on the case where for older/different connections the a mobo.

well the build I threw together was a little more costly than originally anticipated, so more case mods and add-ons like ANY sound equipment haven't even come in to play yet, so I was just trying to hook up the mic and headphone jacks on the case to the mobo.

well... I sat there last night staring pointlessly at the connections and the case... and I had an idea. What's the harm in trial and error? port1 can only mean a few things, right? so I got to thinkin...

PORT1_L could only be ear or mic, right?
AUD_GND is obviously ground
PORT1_R right side of port1
PRECENCE_J has to be something to do with mic
PORT2_R is the opposite of port1, ear or mic
SENSE1_RETURN has to be return R or L
SENSE_SEND is the only one I'm not sure of
PORT2_L left side of port2
SENSE2_RETURN has to be the other side of return

is it possible that I am even somewhat close? or if I hook it up like this will it sizzle like a spoon in the microwave? I mean really though, what is the harm in trying it combination after combination until I get it?

it was sarcasm about the sizzle... but the manual had a table and it showed the exact thing I typed at the top... and the manual for the tower had a table that showed what i've put, but it also had what it should say on the mobo next to each item, and none of them match up except the ground. I looked at that for about 15 minutes trying to think of how it could connect, and I came up with my previous post, but I'm a chicken **** and I don't want to damage my $300 mobo.

on a side note all-in-all it was a $2200 build.
