turnswolf, I'm not quite following you. Where are the "wires I have"?

I expect that you are trying to connect an audio header from the motherboard to an audio panel on the front of the case. Is that right? Where did you get the information about the pin outs? How do you know that the front audio panel and the motherboard audio header both support jack sensing?

I feel like there was such a hookup on my last build, but it just worked and I never gave it another thought.

the "i have wires" are the front header wires from the front of the case the panel audio is the mobo jacks i was hopeing someone knew how to match them properly so i can have front headphone hookups on my case, sorry it took so long to get back but im a trucker by trade so i only get home on the weekends
