I also posted this on Tom's Hardware forums but am getting no help over there thus far so I figured I would try here as well.
So I recently installed an EClaro sound card and upon going to hook up my front panel connection noticed that the 10 pin connection has all 10 pins.
Now, I work in IT but have only recently started dealing with sound cards. My mobo has the typical 10 pin connection as well with 1 pin missing for the key. This card, however, does not.
I looked on their site just to make sure I read it correctly and they state it is a "standard 10 pin connection" with this picture http://www.htomega.com/images/eclaro_front.jpg - This is not what mine looks like.
I'm at a loss here and thought maybe I needed some sort of converter which to my knowledge doesn't exist. So my two thoughts are this...
1) This is an older connection that I was just unaware of and I'm pretty much up the creek as far as using my front panel with this card or...
2) This was some sort of manufacturing oversight and I can just trim the extra pin off and continue on my merry way (not something I want to do without being 100% sure on).
Keep in mind I have emailed them several times with no response.
I am going to try removing the pins from the front panel header when I get home and manually plugging them in one at a time but wanted to check to make sure someone hasn't had this problem and can help me first.
