  1. I'm running MSI K7N420 Pro (nForce 420-D) with very good headphones. nForce APU kicks ass!!

    Have you installed S/PDIF bracket?

    According to this pic, it seems that the yellow connector, with yellow plastic inside it, is the S/PDIF connector. You should have another jack other than standard 3.5mm audio jack. Insert this in this connector and see what happens

  4. What exactly is that s/pdif bracket do? I have one that came with my mobo, but I do not know what its for... So how do you get 5 speakers and a sub connected to it when it has like three speaker inputs???
