Logitech Z337 Speakers with MSI B350 PC MATE ATX Motherboard

Hi --

I was recently gifted Logitech Z337 speakers. I am not very computer or audio savvy, so I was hoping to get someone's input on how I can set up these speakers with the current motherboard I have which is the MSI B350 PC Mate ... or really any motherboard? The speakers have red and white audio jacks but I don't see any red or white jacks on this motherboard. Not sure if this makes a difference or not. These speakers do have Bluetooth, and I was also given the Avantree BTDG-40S Bluetooth USB dongle, but for some reason, I can't get it to discover these speakers, so I was wondering how would I set up a wired connection instead? If you could also give me some guidance on how this is done, I would really appreciate it.

(Not sure if this is relevant, but my operating system is Windows 10.)

Thank you in advance for all your help.

I'd suggest using a 3.5mm to RCA connector, then you don't have to worry about dropping connection or audio compression via bluetooth. These connectors can be found online or at most tech-savvy stores including Best Buy or Guitar Center or the like. Maybe Wal-Mart, but you'll have to find it on your own.

The 3.5mm side is the standard headphone/aux connection that will plug into the headphone jack on the motherboard shield, then the RCA red/white will connect on the speaker end.

Thank you very much for your response and for taking the time to help me with this. Silly question but can you tell and/or do you know which color is the "headphone/aux connection that will plug into the headphone jack" that you are referring to on the motherboard that I am using? I did some research prior to asking this follow-up question, and some sites and forums are saying that it's the green one ... Thank you again.

They were right, it's the green one!

Thank you so much! I wanted all cables hidden in the back of my PC, so hopefully this will do the trick.
