    I have no sound on the left speaker of my headphone when it is plugged at the front panel.
    when plugged rear it works.
    when plugged headphones into the desk speakers logitech 2+1 it works.

    my desk speakers logitech 2+1 are plugged at the rear panel it works fine.
    when I plug the headphones at the front I get sound only from the right speaker of the headphone.
    System newly setup with all drivers.
    sys: win 7 pro, asus z 77 a, i5 3570, gtx 760.
    I have changed front panel audio connector settings from hd audio to AC97 and vice versa.
    front audio connector inside case checked if properly plugged.

    I would appreciate it very much if anyone have an advice, as I do long gaming sessions after everyone is asleep and I cant hear from desk speakers at night, not to make all neighbours and family upset.

    sounds like it could be a bad audio jack, looks like you have checked everything else out to determine that it's not the headphones or drivers

    You could try contacting the case manufacture and see if they can sell you a new front audio jack

    Seems to be a simple connection problem, related to the either the Female Audio Socket (Plug) and/or the Socket/Plug on MB. A good Contact Cleaner may just do the job!

    Edit: forget to mention, that a turning of the Audio Jack in the Front Connector Plug, maybe solve that problem for a short time, If so, I would change that Connector Plug.

    I agree with the above comments.

    The headphone seems OK and the problem appears to lie with the front panel socket. Before replacing it, make sure none of its connections has come off.
