Hi I was hoping to get some kind of adaptor to send audio 5.1ch to Logitech Z906 straight from the motherboard HD Audio header. The problem is the motherboard has no rear 5.1 options (gigabyte ab350m ds3h) but supports up to 7.1 from the HD audio header. There is no space for sound card as the rtx2060sc comes real low to the PSU cover and takes up the rear slots. The front panel has no 5.1, toslink etc. And the rtx2060 hdmi output can be somehow configured to send 5.1 but it's going straight to the TV first. Anyone get a cheap workaround without changing motherboard?

you could connect it via cinch from the rear of your motherboard
your motherboard doesn´t provide spdif or coaxial digital audio, only a spdif 2 pin to GPU or sound card

only other option would be an USB audio device/sound card like:
