So like the title of this thread says, I just installed some new hardware for my PC.

Old Specs:
AMD FX-8320
Asrock 990 FX killer
Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooler
MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X

New Specs:
i7 6700k (stock)
MSI Gaming M7 motherboard
NZXT Kraken x62
(GPU didn't change)

Before upgrading, my speakers worked perfectly fine. What I mean by "worked" is they actually showed in the Playback Devices menu.

And you just dropped the original drive+OS in this new parts list?
Speakers and LAN are the least of your worries.

Guess I should have been more clear, sorry.

Mobo, cpu, cooler, and ram were the only things that were changed.

Yes.
This includes the drivers, and all of your other applications.

What OS is this? This may also impact the Windows activation.
If Win 10, you should have done this before changing the hardware:
