    I'm afraid there is non. Atleast can't find anything in manual about it, schematics or photo. All headers on motherboard are named in schematic and neither of it is for speaker. It may have speaker built in already, if it will beep when you power it up you will know for sure.
  4. It is at the bottom of the board along with the F_Panel. It is the top right corner of Those plugs.

    Oh wow I was looking at the wrong board, but on other sites people are saying it has no beeper/speaker, so I guess just cross your fingers and hope it will post! :)

    You mean header for speaker? Are you sure about that? At schematic there is only F_Panel, left of it is clr_cmos and right of it USB3. I don't see it anywhere there nor on photo of motherboard.

    Your eye-site must be better than mine. Bugerred if I can see it.

    You'd think it'd be in the manual.

  11. Best answer
    when you turn on your pc just wait about 5 seconds , close your eyes and say " BEEEP " and hope it posts lol
  12. Yes I switch it on but no beep unfortunately so I guess, I will just have to say "beep" every time thanks anyway guys.
  13. lol ,you are welcome m8 , hope it all goes well for you , all the best
  14. ha ha ha ... I was telling my buddy about this awile back and said his 990ud3 has nothing on it at all . he thought it was odd too. and not only that but some don't have buzzer ,lights or led displays nothing . so you cant boot but then you have no way of knowing whats wrong at all.. gigabyte is a solid brand but who ever thought up that aspect for a board needs to find something else to do. how dumb. or maybe gigabyte feels there boards are 100% goof proof?
