Windows 7: audio boost feature?

audio boost feature?


Does anyone know how i can take advantage of the msi z97 gaming 5 audio boost feature?

The motherboard comes with a 4 pin molex connector and the opposite end is a small 3 pin female connector.

I know the small end plugs into the AUDPWR1 on the motherboard at the bottom.

But what about the molex? Maybe i need an externsion molex to attach onto the powersupply molex and bring it around. I dont know.

Any ideas .. Thanks.

Not to be a wise guy, but the MSI manual should detail how or what to connect.

I could research it, but you can too.

Page 1-25 in the manual details the connection to the Power supply via that connector.
