Serial ATA Connector

To connect a Serial ATA disk, you must use a 7-pinserial ATA cable. Connect two ends of the serial ATA cable to the serial ATA header on the main board and the disk. Like every other traditional disk, you also have to connect a power cable. Please note that it is a jumper free implement; you don’t need to set jumpers to define a master or slave disk. When connecting two serial ATA disks, the system will automatically take the one connected to “Serial ATA 1” header as a master disk

S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) Connneeccttoorr

S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interface) is a newest audio transfer file format, which provides impressive audio quality through optical fiber and allows you to enjoy digital audio instead of analog audio. Through a specific audio cable, you can connect the S/PDIF connector to other end of the S/PDIF audio module, which bears S/PDIF digital output. Normally there are two S/PDIF outputs as shown, one for RCA connector, the most common one used for consumer audio products, and the other for optical connector with better audio quality. Same as outputs, you can also connect RCA or optical audio products to input connectors on the module and have the voice or music come out from your computer. However, you must have a S/PDIF supported speaker/amplifier/decoder with S/PDIF digital input/output to connect to the S/PDIF digital input/output to make the most out of this function.
