To Rams4x4 and SEANIA, if you are still active here I would like to thank you immensely! If they remember, they helped me build a Skylake rig from the ground up and it works like a dream. Every piece they recommended fit like a glove and I thank you so much for your input and time vested in helping me!


So I'm very confused with audio and how Ohms works and impedance. It is SO confusing to me and I need to have this broken down in dummy form. Ok. So my main question is, What's the ohms that output from a maximus formula board or Z-170 A motherboard (onboard)? I read the headphone ohms should be 8 times higher ohms than the motherboard audio jack for max performance.. I don't know what ohms the motherboard jack outputs.


I bought headphones that have 64 ohms. I plug it right into the back jack of my computer. I'm a bit of an audiophile but a very stupid one! My other computer is connected to 2 big box standing speakers and it says 8ohms in the back of each speaker. And those are connected through the S/PDIF. Now whats the ohm output of that S/PDIF jack?!


Who knows? Hopefully you guys could help.


Lets assume the output of my green onboard audio jack is 8 ohms, then my 64 ohms headphones would be PERFECT according to some articles I've read stating that the ohms on the headphones should be 8 times higher than the audio jack equipment's ohms.


I hope I gave enough information.. I want the best audio with the equipment I have. I also have an AMP if you'd like to know about those specs as well.


Thanks in advance my fellow geeks! :) :)


EDIT: Sorry, I read the rules of posting AFTER I posted this thread, I should have added more information in my title instead of just "help". Sorry about that. I should have said "help with audio". And I don't know how to change my thread title.. It won't happen again :/


EDIT: aww I checked the 2 users that helped me last time, their info, and they haven't been active in months :( ok I'm sure they're many chivalrous people here that are willing to help me :)
