  1. Thanks everyone for your help, the problem was that I just inserted the HD audio cable on half and didn't see it :) Once it's in full everything is working.
  2. But I remember that I connected this, I need to double-check because I'm not certain at this point.
  3. Okay, then I will check that, thanks.
  4. Hi everyone, once again I'm asking this great community for help. I've recently build my own pc for the 1st time and it's now has been working great for 2 months apart from one thing - the front panel audio jacks are not working. I have NZXT H500 case, Ryzen 7 3700x CPU and B450 Gaming Plus Max MSI motherboard. I have updated all the drivers, realtek is working when I plug in the sound from the back, directly into the motherboard, auto pop notifications comes up and the sound is working. But when I plug in anything to the front jacks there's no detection of any audio device whatsoever. The USB entrances on the front and power button are working correctly, so my question is, can it be that I didn't connect something to the motherboard for those front panel audio jacks not to works (do they have a separate connector) or if the power button & usb on the front are working then I connected everything there is? Could it be that the motherboard has a defect or that's the problem of the case? Thanks for your help in advance. As an alternative I was looking to buy something like this https://www.amazon.com/UGREEN-External-Headphone-Microphone-Desktops/dp/B016CU2PEU if I will not be able to solve this problem.
  5. Okay, so 4 coolers not too much. But now since you've brought it up, I need to somehow cut a hole in my wooden pc case holder at the bottom so that the fan from the PSU is blowing out the air and is not standing on the ground like it is right now.
  6. Ah, okay So I have 2 pre-installed and 2 that I bought, I could return 1 of those that I bought, but yeah, if you think it's no worries I'll install 2 and to summarize I will have 4, 1 back, 1 top, 2 front. Thank you.
  7. I really don't want to remove the ones that come with the case and that NZXT already pre-installed for me, I think they have a better idea where to have coolers for me in their case, so I need to decide how many to put myself on the front As I understood you're saying to only add 1 on the front and that's all.
  8. I'm looking for to keep my GPU at high loads not over 70 if possible.
  9. Sorry, I confused you. Those NZXT that are pre-installed are both exhaust, the ones that don't have the arrows I was talking about are Thermaltake 12 Rings, the ones that I have two.
  10. Thanks for the elaborate answer, I haven't watched the video yet, but will in the evening after work. I set the PSU fan looking downwards like it was recommended in the user's manual. Regarding pre-installed fans, one is on the back and one is on the top. From what I read that I should do is to install front case coolers as an intake fans, but I still haven't figured out how to do that, since my coolers don't have arrows on them to show which way the air is blowing out. So if we disregard like you said PSU fan, GPU fans and CPU fans, I only have 2 fans on my pc case that actually do the cooling and my question is then how many should I install on the front of the pc case as intake?
  11. Okay, thanks, I'll check it out. Also maybe you have an idea regarding my exact setup?
  12. Hi everyone, I have a bit of a stupid question. I have a NZXT H500 case which has 2 fans pre-installed, my PSU is Seasonic 650 FX which also has 1 fan, soon I'll buy a Ryzen 7 3700x which will also have 1 fan from the cooler, and I've already ordered MSI Gaming X Trio 2070 Super which has 3 fans, additionally I have 2 Thermaltake 12 Ring fans that I've already bought, but haven't installed yet on the front side of the pc case. My question is should I install those two fans on the front or return them? Is there such a thing as too much cooling or should I only install one fan and return the other, the noise doesn't bother me at all and it's not that loud even. Thanks for your help fellas.
