Question Asus Sabretooth x79 Audio Issues (With or without soundcard)

Recently, I've lost my ability to get any sound output from my audio ports, save for the headphones option. I use an Asus Sabretooth x79 with an i7-3930k. It's worked great for years with no issues. Board has onboard audio (Realtek) however, I use a Soundblaster Z audio card in its place.

Now, it shows that I have no speakers plugged in.

I've tried:

Testing speakers on a different system, they work!
Re-seating my audio card.
Trying a different slot
Removing the card and using onboard audio
Updating the bios.
Reinstalling windows (After reinstalling drivers did nothing)

I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here. Has my motherboard just lost the ability to produce audio, even with an after market card? I can get sound if I use the headphone port, but other than that, with or without the card it says "No speakers plugged in"

Losing my mind, please help.
