    What motherboard do you have? You may have to download its manual and get the pin/jumper settings for audio

    You need to download the manual for your Motherboard, from the Manufacture's website

    thanks already going thru that thanks again. I think I will just use them connected to the control port on the back of the control pad that runs the speaker volume and bass adjustment . they seem crystal clear when I hook to that . so I think I am good to go

    If you built it yourself you must know the make and model of the motherboard and have the manual for it. The manual will contain the information you need to properly configure your sound to the front audio jacks
