    Question [Z490-I] Turn-off audio jack LEDs

    Hi all,

    I just bought a Z490-I motherboard and I'm very happy of it but I don't managed to turn-off audio jack LEDs located behind the MB (see picture)

    I'm using my monitor's sound output hence it's projecting a big halo on the wall

    I've searched in the BIOS settings and the Armoury crate software without success
    I managed to turn all LEDs on the MB except for these ones

    Did I miss something?
    Any help would be appreciated :-)

    This was asked not too long ago, don't think its possible for this particular motherboard.

    Arghh... that's not ideal...

    I guess I will buy some headphone connectors or salvage old ones to plug them, it would be better than black tape

    Thanks for pointing me to the other thread.

    You could also look for a "dust cover", which are readily available on Amazon. I'm considering that myself since I have an external USB DAC and use my front panel microphone jack...

    I've been searching for something of this sort for a few days now. What I am unsure about is whether these sort of plugs activate the audio jack detection switches.

    I found an easy solution.

    I'd bought Noctua's Anti-vibration nails for mounting fans to PC cases. I hate threading screws into the unthreaded plastic of any case fan. So, I always use these anti-vibration nails. https://www.amazon.sg/gp/product/B07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    So, I cut down the unused ones and just repurposed them as anti-dust plugs. Cheers.

    EDIT: And I can confirm they do not activate the internal audio jack detection switches. Nor do they get hot and melt.

    Great solution! Better than gummy tape residue.
