I can wait. I am just very grateful for you and Petrols help. It really means a lot to me that completely strangers are trying so hard to help me with this problem. You two are my Internet heroes.

I've had issues with audio playback from debian with Pulse, ALSA solved it.
Here are some threads where people discuss removing Pulse and replacing with ALSA.
The second link is for mint10 but may be work.

This code from the link above is to remove the pulseaudio front end and replace with also front end.
Code:
sudo apt-get autoremove pulseaudio

sudo apt-get install gnome-alsamixer

well, we gave it another shot tonight but came up empty. I will not give up because the thought of going back to winblows makes me sick. So tomorrow I will be back at it. A shame it really takes a week to solve what should be a simple audio issue. Everything else is working perfect. I could not be happier but I really need this so please hang in there with me people because I really need YOU.

See you tomorrow

BLah. So for context, snd-hda-intel is the kernel module (driver) that supports HDA Intel devices and it's supposed to include support for the newer Sunrise Point devices as well. It's possible though that the kernel you're using has an outdated version of the driver, lacking some support particulars for your exact device. Since the Z170 chipset was just released in the past year or so this is definitely a possibility.

But since you can run alsamixer without failure, there's one more trick worth trying before getting desperate.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HdaIntelSoundHowto

^ go through the "Manually Specify Module Parameters" section, but when you get to alsa-base just ignore that and edit your existing alsa.conf file instead. For simplicity try:
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf

to open it with the graphical text editor, then add:

"options snd-hda-intel model=MODEL" (replacing MODEL with the info you found)

and then save the file and run:
Code:
sudo alsa force-reload

Then run alsamixer again and see if the controls for the device finally show up.

If that doesn't work would updating the kernel help, I don't believe his CPU even existed when that kernel came out.

Petrol your first code says not found. I tried the link and first code only list the gpu hdmi no onboard anything. Thanks for trying.

The reason I do not run a more recent kernel is because i could not get fglxr to load in a 4.x kernel. Guess there is no support from AMD(typical). Without that I can not cure my tearing problem in video.

It seems I am in a catch 22. Load new kernel and try to get spdif to work or keep existing kernel and only have hdmi. Really sucks. I will try to load the newest Linux Mint 18 and Ubuntu 16.04 to see if I can get spdif to work. If I can I will try to solve the tearing issue.

will report back after I see if I can even get any linux to see the spdif.

the distro i really want to run is straight debian but I could not get grub to load onto the nvme but if this is a kernel issue that will not work even if i could solve the nvme problem

Thanks again and I will give the newer versions a try right now

the location could be /proc/asound/card1 instead of card0, it will be a different device from the HDMI. if you have DKMS installed it's worth trying one of these packages, looks like you can download the .deb file via HTTP then just use:
Code:
dpkg -i </local/path/package_name>

to install. I'm not sure which version of Ubuntu matches your version of Mint but that'll be the one to try if you want to stay with your current kernel version

I believe Mint still uses Ubuntu 15.04.

Success

I installed Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon (had tried Mate before) and everything worked. The spdif and hdmi all showed up without doing anything. Plus I guess i do not need the fglxr driver for now because I had no tearing in video. This is not the desktop I want to use but for now at least everything is working and if I have to live with the Cinnamon desktop environment I will.

I want you all to know how much I appreciate all the effort and time you spent on helping me. I just scratch built this computer as you can see on the forums and now I can finally start using it as my daily pc. If I can ever repay the favor please let me know but for now all I can say is thank you so much!

Any guess on why Mate was a problem but Cinnamon was not? I did not know the desktop environment was so picky. Up until now I just used the one i liked. Been running Mate for a long time and yet now I have to switch. Oh well, at least my system is doing what I want.

May I ask what desktop you all use? And what version of Linux? if you do not mind

Like I said before I really wanted to use plain Debian but will wait for the next Debian (stretch) is released and maybe try again.
