Good news for now... I put them in the "wrong" ports and now I'm at least getting sound, although less quality than my prior MoBo.

MailMan - They were plugged in the proper "center/sub, front, side/rear" ports at first. Then I moved them into the mic/in/out jacks and started to get some sound. It seems of shoddy quality though... All levels in volume mixer are 100%.

Mx - Should it be on or off? I'll check.
It should be enabled, and if you are getting now now. then you are fine.

How many connections do you have. I have one for my 2.1 system and it goes into the Green if i were to use integrated.

Is there any reason putting them in the wrong ports give me sound while putting them in the proper ones doesn't? I have two in the right port and one in the wrong one and that's the best result so far...

I have 3 connections. Black/light green/orange.

On my MoBo there's Black Rear (lol), Green Side/Front, Orange Center/Sub and then 3 colors for mic/in/out as well.

They have been disabled.

Jetster - what do you mean by that? The front panel connector.

Might not be the solution but I've got Logitech 5.1 speakers too and I get no sound from youtube and certain games unless they're configured to "6 channel direct" from the control pod.
