This creative speaker you have mentioned has 3.5mm jack input only, no RCA ports involved, direct 3.5mm goes into your mobo, and the other 3.5mm end goes into the speakers, cable provided in box.

Any speakers with single Aux input is only 2 channels left and right. Pc will not recognize subwoofer or control it. 

 

If you want bass control, LG LK72B XBOOM has separate bass control and volume control buttons on remote.

 

There is no option to control bass on this infinity speakers. I did not check other models you mentioned.

 

 


But on LG and philips speakers they have two red and two white 3.5mm ports so will they recognize the subwoofer which is very important to me as i need decent amount of bass in my content

Aux In is where you connect audio input from your pc with aux to rca cable. Only 2 channels. red is right channel white is left channel

 

Red Fr is front right and white Fl is front left for connecting the output speakers.

If you want to control bass seperately then you can on the LG one with the remote or the buttons on the sub woofer

The LG one also has a 3.5mm input but it's on the front, the RCA ones are on the back.

So i have 2 ways for LG Xboom to connect to PC either the RC Cable you linked or get a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable and connect one end to front aux and other to PC 3.5mm green port ?

The speaker set seems to have 3.5mm input but that's on the front, the back inputs are RCA, for which you can use the above mentioned cables, plug the 3.5mm to your motherboard, and plug the red white RCA ends to the speaker.
 
The wire that will go into the pc or monitor is black instead of green. Aren't pc AV cables color specific with functionality

Where would i plug this into the on mobo or monitor? Both have a green and black 3.5mm port

Color coding is given to distinguish aux ports. Generally green is line out, blue is line in and red is mic.

 

Im thinking what you are mentioning black port is for headphones generally positioned in easily accessible way (front/top of cpu). 

 

Green one is the line out where you connect the speakers which will be on back of your cpu/ monitor.

Doesn't matter in this case, it's a 3.5mm cable goes into audio out jack, goes in headphone jack, you can even put it in MIC jack,

Yes.

 

AUX basically means this same 3.5mm jack.

I purchased 2 "aux extension cables" for ease in switching audio input between PC mobo and Monitor  to the speakers, works just as expected.

Guys, I am building a PC based around 10900K /3080, pcpartpicker.com estimated the total wattage at 619W(at max load) and 151W(at min load) , so I am going with a 750W PSU.

Now my home already has a 650VA sinewave home-UPS installed, can I plug the system directly into the home-UPS supply? Will it be able to hold before I cleanly shutdown? Or should I get a separate UPS? (Also has another 850VA inverter installed, but its not sinewave, so I guess it won't work?)

 

Thanks.

Your UPS only need to support the wattage required to shutdown your PC. You won't be running/using max load or anywhere close to 750W. 

 

Try with 650VA first. Else, go for 1kVA UPS. 

 

650VA = 650xPF (usually 0.5-0.7). Your UPS will handle roughly 455W max load.

Looks good enough. You can change motherboard to B550 if you want; else B450 is just fine. 

 

Most of them don't change CPU every 1-3 years, so getting "future compatible board" don't make much sense.

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is for the same price as Ryzen 7 3700x.

Which one would be better? @Joe Cool

5600x is better than 3700x but also need to change motherboard. B450 don't support it yet out of the box.

 

It is worth considering getting 5600x + B550 board as you get solid 15-20% better performance.

Seeing the performance gain I have suggested him to get this combo.. Will this motherboard be good?

MSI B550-A Pro

MSI B550M Mortar

MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk

Gigabyte B550 Aorus Pro

 

x570 choice - ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus

 

All good choices. Try to get newly manufactured/boxed unit so you can avoid BIOS update. If you plan to get it assembled, they will take care of it I guess. Else you have to flash BIOS.

Thanks phantom and gmanu. I bought LG K72B xboom speakers got them hooked up to PC by RC  to aux cable at first the amazon basics cable wasn't working on both monitor and PC so i got worried, it seems it has a weird design that at the speaker end the amazon wires don't connect tightly so i had to push in hard and on the mobo end the wire is a bit lose and doesn't hold in place very tightly.

I was worried and tried the speakers on phone which worked then after tightening the wires it's working now on mobo but when i connect to monitor the speakers don't show up in playback devices of sound settings, they only show up when connected to mobo.

So i am only getting PC audio, currently as i don't have a tv i wanted to connect them to the monitor via it's aux input. So that i can use it for PS4 or xbox when i connect them to monitor hdmi port.

Should i get a 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable from amazon to connect from front aux port of the LG subwoofer to monitor 3.5mm aux ? Is it safe connecting both inputs on subwoofer simultaneously ?

how is the monitor connected to the mobo? the connection from Mobo to monitor should also route sound. Afaik only DisplayPort and HDMI support audio.

 

For instance a console if connected to the monitor via HDMI will route audio over HDMI and the monitor will route the audio thru internal speakers or via the 3.5mm out jack to the speakers if connected.

 

In short if the monitor is not receiving audio from the mobo, it will not send audio to the speakers since there is nothing to send. Secondly speakers connected to monitor 3.5mm jack will not show up in windows as windows is only interacting with the monitor and not speakers.
