Default DAC optical question

Just got my new replacment MB it is a gigabyte z170x gaming 7 now i had a rog ranger before this and it died so got it replaced with this.

now i use bose companion 3 for gaming and music and so on my question is the MB has built in DAC usb ports and also had optical but my bose only has 3.5mm if u get a optical to 3.5mm or a usb to 3.5mm will there be any gain.

You wont be able to plug the USB or optical from the motherboard directly into the Bose via the 3.5 jack. You'll need to plug the line out from the motherboard into the bose (should both be 3.5mm) or buy a DAC and use that from the usb/optical of the mb to output to the bose.
