No sound using ASUS Xonar Essence STX. Could it be that I'm powering it with a Molex to 3 Pin in 4Pin PSU?

Been going through every thread and haven't been able to get ASUS Xonar Essence STX to work.
I don't get any sound when I hook up my speakers or headphones.
Could it be that I am powering it using a Molex to 3pin converted connected to a 4pin slot in the power supply unit?

I'm running windows 8.1 64 bit. I've tried both the Uni Xonar driver and the latest Xonar driver from their actual site.

I've disabled on board sound in the bios as well as disabled all other sound drivers besides the STX

I've messed with the settings the asus power center, tried the analog out to just about every option.

My last hope is to do a complete windows reboot and hope it works.

Anything i'm overlooking here?

    ??? That can't be possible, now, can it? Can you please pass on a picture of how you have the sound card connected to your power supply?

    Have you tried with a BIOS update for your system while you go into reinstalling the audio drivers on your system? Speaking of system, can you please pass on your full system's specs? Unfortunately the drivers for your sound card are classified as being under beta. You'd need to downgrade to Windows 7 or go up to Windows 10 per drivers available.
