NF4 Front Audio Pin Outs Stacker Case?


Recommended Posts

hi all

 

im wondering where i should put those audio cables of my stacker case in the Karajan Audio Module?

 

the names on both just dont match :/

 

Karajan Audio Module:

 

1 2 3 4 5

6 7 8 9 10

 

1) GND

2) Vcc

3) line out right front

4) NC

5) line out left front

6) mic left

7) mic right

8) line out right

9) NC

10) line out left

 

Stacker Case Cable:

 

1) Ground

2) Mic in

3) Mic power

4) L-ret

5) R-ret

6) L-out

7) R-out

 

what goes in where? :P

 

stacker --> karajan

1 --> 1

 

i suppose

 

the rest i dont know sure...

 

and another question

 

i have 4.1 sound connected in the back, can i connect 2.1 in the front at the same time then?

 

or do i need to set it to stereo when i wanne use the front connector each time?

i've got the same Q and it looks like the same case audio cables!

 

seems like the Karajan has a stereo mic inputs whereas most cases are mono. just put the case connector on left or right and deal with converting to mono in software? or get a splitter to input the same mic info to both channels?

 

or just ignore the front audio connectors from the case! ;) <= my solution.

1. I dont have a clue. I dont have a Stacker case. I also have not used front audio so I suppose i am a bad tech support person =(

 

 

2. you cannot have 4.1 in rear and 2.1 in front. When you use front you disable the rear, and vice-versa. (that is the way it was with NF2 integrated audio)

can u perhaps ask oskar about the right connection combinations then?

 

cause if u dont even know, i guess no one knows...

 

and im pretty sure im not the only one having probs finding out what goes where, since this is a basic feature of the karajan audio module

Just a shot in the dark (have been fighting with front audio some time):

 

line out right front - R-out (these go to the front panel)

line out left front - L-out

 

line out right - R-ret (these go to the back)

line out left -L-ret

 

mic left / right - there should be a note in the manual if there is support for two mics.

 

 

Ok, just read the manual, this board seems to have support for two mics. Then,

 

mic left OR right - mic-in on the case (only one mic on the case)

 

vcc - mic power.

 

 

Hope it helps (but no warranty!)

Does it work temporarily for headphones? Or is it always enabled/disabled?

i have a cm stacker as well. i am not sure that the front mic is compatable, as one is labled "mic_power", and the other "mic_in" and not "mic_left", and "mic_right" like the karajan is built.

 

when you plug in headphones it disables the rear audio, when you unplug the headphones sound will be directed back to the audio module. think of the headphones as a bypass.

 

it's important that the "line out_left_front", and "line out_left" and the "line out_right_front" and "line out_right" are bridged respectively. so one cable will hook to the line_out_front, and one will return to the line_out_pin.

 

there is a diagram in the users manual.

 

i found it helpful to orient the diagram like this instead of sideways.

 

DFI Manual Diagram

 

.........................10.9

out_left_front.......*.* out_left

nc.........................* nc

out_right_front.....*.* out_right

vcc....................*.* mic_right

gnd....................*.* mic_left

.........................2.1

 

This is the proper setup for the sound on the front panel of a CM STACKER:

( bridged looks like this, where --- is a jumper, or properly connected cables.)

.........................10.9

out_left_front...... --- out_left

nc.........................* nc

out_right_front.....--- out_right

vcc....................*.* mic_power

gnd....................*.* mic_in

.........................2.1

Sweet, thanks Crono!

 

BTW, CoolerMaster just pointed this out to me, thought I'd pass it along. I won't get a chance to power down my system until this evening at least, but it looks like this'll be on my list of things to tinker with now. ^_^
