For Intel Front Panel Audio (IFPA) / AC97, please note that there's only 1 GND pin provided in the header/pinout. If you want to connect both headphone and microphone ports to IFPA / AC97 header, please use CPX110 Headphone & Microphone Internal.
MICROPHONE PORT INTERNAL
Black: Microphone / MIC
The GND (ground) wire is fatter and can be easily recognized.
Diagram 1: On most motherboards, the pinouts for audio ports are grouped together. You need to find out which 3 pins are assigned as MIC, MICPWR and GND.
Diagram 2: Simply plug the connector onto the header/pin-out, in such that; black wire is connected to MIC pin, red wire to MICPWR pin and the GND wire to GND pin.
If the 3 active pins are not located in one same row (refer to diagram above), you need to change the header connector, and rearrange the wires to match with the pin assignments.
NC pin (no connection - empty) is not a GND pin. Do not connect the GND wire to NC pin.
You can connect CPX093-2 to the IFPA / AC97 header by purchasing an additional 1x3 header connector, and rearrange the wires in such that; black wire is connected to MIC pin, red wire to MIC PWR pin and the GND wire to GND pin. Do not remove the Line-Out jumpers so that your onboard rear speaker socket will remain functional. Part of the 1x3 header connectors can be left overhang outside the pinouts.
As mentioned above, if you want to connect both headphone and microphone ports to the IFPA / AC97 header, please use CPX110.
