The link below is for your motherboard manual. Chapter 2.3.12 shows how to connect 5.1 speakers.

Connect the speakers to the jacks on the rear/motherboard.

Front jacks are usually only stereo.

I assume you installed the Asus drivers for your motherboard. If not, they are located at the Asustek site. Link below. Click on download.

Are you using the jacks on the rear of the motherboard?

If so, the case wiring has nothing to do with it. The jacks you should be using are part of the motherboard.

IF your subwoofer has jacks for all the speakers then connect the speakers to the sub. Use line out to the sub.

If you have a sound manager then you may need to program the jacks for 5.1.

You need to double click on the jack you are connected to in the Realtek manager to enable it. You will get a drop down menu. You may need to use the front speaker option. No harm in trying each option, one by one.
