    Hi there!
    I have a A7N8X-E Deluxe mother board. I know it supports a front audio panel
    but my computer case doesn't have any. It would be useful when you want to
    plug headphones. I would like to install a rack in a front bay but one you
    can plug to the mother board's front audio panel connectors and NOT the rear
    audio connectors.
    Does anyone know a rack that would function in that way please ?

    Page 20 of this specification shows the "standard" for the front
    panel audio connector. This is why it is referred to as
    "Intel compatible":

    Here is an example - the Asus J-Panel rack. Note the words
    "Intel front panel audio":

    You can build your own front panel drive bay interface,
    with parts from here. This is an expensive method.

    Here is an example of a Soyo product - Bayone Extreme

    Good ones are hard to find.

    I use the parts from It works good and is good quality.
    It has a connector that plugs into the motherboard and leaves the rear
    audio connections just as they are. You can plug your headphones into
    the frontx and your speakers will be muted.
