No unless you have optical IN most MOBO's only have optical out!
Also ive not seen any "gaming" head sets that use optical to interface with a PC before?!
That makes sense, so now I am using standard line in and line out for my headset. However, when I mute my microphone the audio from the line out is going through the line in. I cannot figure out why this is occurring, are there any possible fixes for this?
