    You should have one or two cables that go to that connector, if you don't have a sound card. One cable should say AC97' on it and the other I think says HD on it, but I can't remember off hand right now? The better choice is the second one HD. If you do have a sound card than those other cables you listed got to that.

    The 4-pin audio connector is a legacy device and isn't really needed anymore nowadays. Also, it plugs into your sound card, not the case.

      Not so. I am looking for an Audio_In cable for my new gigabyte motherboard. One end plugs in to the Motherboard and the other end plugs in to the analog pins on your CD-ROm,or DVD-ROM/burner.this item is not included in your motherboard Kit.
