Only static noise from front IO headphone jack...

Level 7

I just build my first pc and everything went smoothly. But...

When I tried to plug my speakers into the front IO headphone jack the only sound I got was static noise. My motherboard registered that a speaker was plugged in and the static noise only came when I played sound. Do you guys have any idea what could be the cause of this problem? And do you think it is a motherboard problem or a problem with the case audio cable?

I noticed that the specification of each "hole" on my front IO cable was diffrent then the specification of each "pin" on my motherboard audio connecter. Does that mean something?

Here is a picture for clarity:

Motherboard audio specification to the left and case audio cable specification to the right.

PC specs:

Mobo: Asus z270f
Case: Phanteks Evolv ATX TG

Hope you guys can help me solve this!

Thank you in advance 🙂
