I'm sleeving all my wires while I'm saving money for the rest of my new build. The Audio header HD connector has a AC'97 hanging off of it which looks awful, is their any reason I can't clip it off? I'll only be using this case for new comps, nothing old.

No, just pull each wire out of the connector one buy one and snip it right up by the back of the pin with something like a nail clipper.

Check out my friend's video on YouTube that walks you through this.

Make sure you don't snip the ground wire, as I almost did.
