Default Help on a connection please!

I'm having some difficulty with a couple of connections on my board, and was wondering if I could impose on someone for some advice?

My case (Coolermaster CM 690 II Advanced) has a lead (one) coming from the top of the case I/O panel that has two connectors on the end of it. They resemble USB connectors (I know they're not) but one is marked AC 97 and the other is marked HD audio.

CM 690 II Advanced Manual - Cooler Master

It says to refer to board instructions but has some diagrams. On the bottom of page 2-37 of the ASUS manual it says (I THINK) that I should connect the HD lead to the AAFP header?? I'm almost certain this is correct but almost might cook the board.

Secondly my board (ASUS P7P55D-E Pro) has the following.

IntelŽ P55 Express Chipset built-in
6 xSATA 3.0 Gb/s ports
Intel Matrix Storage Technology Support RAID 0,1,5,10
JMicronŽ JMB363 PATA and SATA controller
1 xUltraDMA 133/100/66 for up to 2 PATA devices
1 xExternal SATA 3Gb/s port
1 xSATA 3Gb/s port (black)
MarvellŽ PCIe SATA6Gb/s controller:
- 2 x SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports (Gray)

The black SATA port listed under the JMicron heading (pg 2-34 of the manual)? What is this SATA port specifically for?
Thanks in advance for the help.
