Everything looks good except your usb pinout should be 1. red 5v 2. Green D- 3. white D+ 4. Black Grnd. Your using 2 Different Pinouts for one usb connection. Stick with the top 5 pinouts or the bottom 4. I would stick with the bottom and not use the ground shield should work fine.

There's NO Mic Input on the G5 front I/O. It's just stereo output.
Audio Sense pin on the G5 does not work on an ATX motherboard. If you plugin a headphone jack into the G5 socket, then you have to manually switch the audio output to your headphones via Sound Prefs.

See here.
