Been years since I had a gigabyte board, but very impressed with this one.\nUsing it in a HTPC, which it is ideal for.\nQ1 Front panel audio header. My case\n[URL]http://www.coolermaster.com/products/product.php?language=uk&act=detail&tbcate=636&id=4195[/URL]\nseems to have AC-97 front panel audio (although Coolermaster state HD audio,\nthe leaflet with the case says AC-97). I disabled the front panel jack\ndetection, as it did not work, and the sound now works fine from the front\npanel. But oddly it comes out from the back motherboard audio jack at the\nsame time. The manual says that when using AC-97, you can only have front or\nback, not both, and that is what I wanted - the sound cutting off when you\nplug in headphones. As it is, I have to manually turn down the sound on my\nTV each time I want to use headphones. which is a bit of a pain. Either the\nmanual is wrong or my case wiring is unusual? I wondered how it works for\nother users...\nQ2 The Gigabyte SB700 heatsink on the board gets very hot in use. None of\nthe software supplied seems to give me the temperature, just the usual CPU,\nsystem and hard drive temps. Should I be worried about the heat of this\npart?
