First build, a few teething issues!

Hey everyone, first post here, thanks in advance for any wisdom you can bestow :) At the very start of this year (2018) I built my first ever rig in the Corsair 460X RGB case, (parts list is at the bottom of this post.) All parts are brand new except the GTX 1080 but I've had no problems playing games/video with that. Fitting everything in the case was a bit of a headache but once I front-mounted the radiator everything fell into place, and though cable management was tricky I'm pretty sure I got everything in and the PC has never crashed. I haven't got a licence for Windows 10, and here are a few problems I've encountered so far. Any help is much appreciated:

  1. Can't control fan speed. Is there a specific program for this when using my fans/motherboard?
  2. Can't control lights on the motherboard or DDR which I read I'd be able to do. Is there a program for this?
  3. No audio through headphone jack. This one is really bugging me as I'm a video editor. No headphones I try are ever recognised, though audio works via my monitor or through a bluetooth dongle I bought that can connect to a speaker.
  4. Reset button doesn't work on case. Don't particularly need this but I'm wondering if it's automatically disabled or something?
  5. If anyone would be so kind to tell me the EXACT drivers etc. I need to get going with all this stuff from Day 1 I'd be really thankful. Basically how would you have set it up the second you booted Windows for the first time?

Thanks so much again in advance!!!

  1. I think you can use iCue if you have Commander Pro. Or maybe the MOBO software, not so sure about MSI but maybe MSI Afterburner or Mystic Light?

  2. Mystic Light should help you with the motherboard. https://www.msi.com/Landing/mystic-light-Graphics-cards#mystic For the memory you can use the software Cue.

  3. Not so sure about that, have you plugged in HD Audio cable to the motherboard?

  4. You probably have not put the small Reset SW cable in correctly. https://www.moddiy.com/product_images/p/324/Power_Reset_SW_Power_HDD_LED_10-Pin_Internal_Motherboard_Cable__78670_zoom.jpg

there also seems to be an auto updater for MSI you can try. it should detect what you need to install. https://us.msi.com/page/Live-Update-6-Manual
