If you could tell me which name for these wires that I should use to plug to the pins on the motherboard for both cables, I will then find these wires and plug them to the pins on the motherboard.
Could you take a well-lit, clearly focused image of the front-panel audio cable (cable 1 in your list above). I need to clearly see each connector and its label, including the wires that run to them. I need to see if any two connectors are coupled, i.e, one connector is branching off of another, for example are Ear R+ and Ear R- coupled together? Likewise, is there an Ear L+ that's coupled to Ear L- since you listed only Ear L-? Could it be that you intended to write Ear L+ instead of Mic L+? I expect something like:
Ear R+ & Ear R-
Ear L+ & Ear L-
Mic Gnd & Ear Gnd
It's important that we get the connectors' labels absolutely correctly, unless you don't mind frying something on the motherboard. That case looks old and most likely has an AC97 audio panel. Fortunately, the HDAUDIO header also supports AC97 configuration, but I can't tell you where on which pin to plug which connector until I know their correct labels. Using my list above, here's how the connections on your motherboard would be:
1. Mic Data
2. Mic Gnd
3. Mic VDD
5. Ear R+
As for USB 2.0, the connections are as follows:
7. Gnd 1
8. Gnd 2
Note: Pay attention to the pin numbering layout of the motherboard headers. If you look at the images on the manual, pin 1 is marked, but there is no other similar mark, so you may end up numbering them in wrong direction. The correct format is, The bottom row of the header where number 1 is, has odd-numbered pins (1, 3, 5, 7 and 9) while the upper row has even-numbered pins (2, 4, 6, 8 and 10). Take your time and you'll get it right. Good lighting will help a lot and shutdown and unplug power from the computer before plugging connectors on the motherboard.
