Changed PSU, now I have no audio (rear and front jackets not working)

First of all, I checked almost all previous questions related to audio problems. None of them worked so I decided to create an account and ask. Three days ago my PSU died (Corsair CX600) so I decided to buy a new one (Seasonic M12II 620W). I connected everything and when I turned on the PC, I had no audio. My speakers are buzzing.
I'm going to save all of us a little of your time telling you what I DID:

*Do the speakers work? Yeah, I plugged my cellphone and they do work.

*Did you uninstalled/reinstalled the latest Realtek Drivers? Yeah, I did it like 5 times.

*Does the front panel work? Nope.

*Do the USB in the rear and front panel work? Yes, they do.

*In the motherboard, are you sure you connected everything ok? I'd like to think so. Into the bottom portion of the motherboard I connected the HD AUDIO into the pins, not the AC97.

*Did you check up the BIOS? I have UEFI BIOS and entered in a section called Advanced Peripherals or something like that. Made sure that the things related to audio were enabled. I made a few changes to see what happened, but nothing. In the end, I changed everything back.

*Did you try to connect the HDMI in your GPU to a TV or something? Not yet. After I post this, I'm going to try that.

*I did check the playback section and tried all of them. Nothing happened. As you can see the audio is "working" (sorry, I have the OS in Spanish) http://

With all that being said, here are my specs:

Processor : AMD FX 6100 3.3 Ghz Black Edition.
GPU : AMD XFX 7850 2 GB GDDR5 Core Edition.
Motherboard : Asus M5A97 PRO.
Memory : 16GB (8GB x 2) Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz
HD : Western Digital Black Edition 1TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB.
PSU : Seasonic M12II 620W-
Case : Mtek F-117 Nighthawk.
OS: Windows 10 Pro.

Hope somebody can help me :(

First you say "my speakers are buzzing" but then you say "Do the speakers work? Yeah".

I don't know what you mean by this. Have you tried the speakers in a different computer? Were the front panel ports working before the PSU died? Can you describe the PSU's death?

The speakers have a green cable that is connected to the computer (the AUX cable). I connected the AUX to my cellphone and played music. The speakers worked as normal.
The front and rear panel worked perfectly before PSU's death. About PSU's death, on Friday I turned the PC off normally and next day when I tried to turn the PC on, nothing happened. I'd say it died in a sudden but I was having problems before its death. Somedays I left my PC on and when I came back it was off. It was 4 years old, I think its lifespan ended.

Just to by clear, when the speakers are connected to the PC they buzz. Right now I have them connected and they are buzzing.

Sounds like the PSU gave the motherboard some damage. The motherboard audio capacitors and components may have been damaged, causing the buzzing. As for the front ports that are not working, those could have gotten damage, perhaps from a spike on the 5VSB rail (which works with things like USB ports and other standby things). I would think replacing the motherboard is the only way to go.
