Hey guys, I have a friend who purchase a xfx 680i mb and is having a few issues with some of the wiring. I looked at his quick reference booklet that came with his mb but couldn't find any answers for him so If anyone owns this mb some help would be appreciated.

1. There seems to be no headers for the internal speaker. I looked at the diagram but he's right it doesn't have anywhere to hook up the internal speaker that I can see. So can someone point us in the right direction.

2. For the pwrled wire it has a 3 pin connector but the header on the mb only has 2 pins for the pwrled. the problem is the 3 pin connector he says is wired in position 1 and 3 so does that mean he has to rewire the connector?

3. The MB comes with the speaker ports on the back panel there is no expansion card but there is a header for azalia hd and also another saying audio. There is also a fraudio header so I am assuming that is where the wires to his headphone and mic ports on the front of the case goes so what are the other 2 headers for?

Thanks in advance for any help.

i'm not too sure I know the answer to those questions... but I have a eVGA 680i mobo and have used the support manual for it many times when i needed troubleshooting.

You start getting into motherboard layouts/components around pg. 62...

 hope that helps.

 #2 is an easy fix i had to do itwith mine just remove the wire from spot3 and put in spot 2. It should come apart easy and then just slide in...  As for the speaker. Idont know

Hey Nelson,

1) There's an on-board speaker on the mobo, you don't need the case speaker, which is why there's no header.

2) Just cut the plug coming from the case in half so you have two separate wires, that's what I do.

3) The front panel audio header is right near one of the PCI slots and on-board speaker / buzzer.  i think it is labled fraudio.  The PDF Willard posted explains has all the info you need.
