how to connect my auzentech to my nvidia card
 
Greetings all. I have searched high and low on Nvidia forums, auzentech forums and google in general and I can't find what I'm looking for. I'm stumped as to which two pins to use on my 7.1 xplosion cinema card to connect to my GTX275 for audio passthrough. There is also nothing in the manual. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You need an SPDIF internal cable. Although there is no reason not to just use onboard. In this case onboard would sound exactly the same.

Is it a different cable than the 2 pin cable I have that connects to my video card? I just can't figure out which 2 pins to connect to on my sound card.

It is a possibility that the soundcard doesn't have an internal SPDIF cable. The cable should look like this though.

That's the cable I have but I don't know which pins on my sound card to connect to.

Can you take a picture of the card, i'm fairly certain i know where it goes however there is a few options and i can't read whats written on the card with crappy internet images i've seen so far

Do you have a manual to read?

Here's pictures straight from the manual, and the only two things having to do with SPDIF. Number 3 also has to do with SPDIF but the manual says it's an input rather than the output you're looking for.

I would assume connecting it to Number 6 there, connecting it (from bottom to top), the spdif at the bottom, and the gnd just above it.

I just tried it and voila! Only one small problem. I'll either have to buy or make a cable that has identical white connectors like the one lowfat posted. The other end of that cable is way too loose. Thanks again for all your help guys!
