Audio Static

I just installed an internal (5.25" bay) flashcard reader with front-panel USB ports and audio jacks (SOYO BayOne Extreme). The ports and card reader connected to my onboard USB pin headers without problem.
The audio, however: I have integrated AC97 audio on my MoBo with an Intel-type onboard header (5x2 pin configuration), compatible with the SOYO audio cable connector. The pin designations coincide, EXCEPT that header Pin 8 is marked KEY (i.e., No Pin) while the cable connector is not keyed and Wire 8 is labeled GND. When the internal audio cable is connected, I get fairly loud continuous static noise from the existing rear-panel speakes, with or without music playing. Plugging a headphone in the front jack does cancel the speakers, but I am not sure I am getting sound from the headphone.
Could the static be because the audio cable "expects" a ground connection on Wire 8, and if so, what's the cure? Is there something else I may be missing? SOYO customer/technical support is non-existent. This is a very nice little unit, though, and I would like to make full use of it. Thanks for any help.
