Just put together my new computer, and quickly found out that only the left speaker puts out (somewhat noisy) sound. What's curious is that when the speakers are connected to another device they work fine. Also, when using a headset the sound from the computer works fine also. I am using the jack connection on the motherbord.
What I've tried:
Installing new realtek drivers
Checking connections and rebooting
Motherbord: ASRock X99 Extreme3 LGA2011-3 ATX
RAM: KINGSTON HyperX Predator DDR4 2666MHz 
Processor: INTEL Core i7-5930K 6-kjerner 3,5GHz LGA2011-3
Speakers: Logitech Z623 2.1
OS: W10

"I am using the jack connection on the motherboard" If what that means is that you are using the green jack on the back of the PC, the systemboard is defective and needs to be replaced (unless it is out of warranty and you have the skill to desolder and replace the jack assembly)
If it is the front panel jack connected to the system board by a wire, that is bad.
You can try pulling almost all of the cotton off of a Q-Tip, getting it wet with WD-40 or contact cleaner, and using it to clean the jack assembly; but, that only tends to be effective if the jack is old and has picked up a bunch of dirt.
