Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: Z170Z Gaming 7 Audio Problem

Saruman hi,
Is Replacing another amp-op new chip solve the problem ?
Currently I have TI OPA2134 and with mobo I received another chip called by TI 4562NA.
If I replace the TI 4562NA into mobo will solve this xxxxx problem?
I think so many complains about audio in many different mobos indicate that something wrong on board audio circuit.
My suspicious on amp-op chip too
I think it is not a driver problem.
If it was driver problem rest the PC could solve it but ac power and pc reset is solve it.
Shame of you gigabyte you do not respond any of this forum articles.
Do not worry gigabyte my next mobos will be asus not from you

I have sniper g1.sniper.m5 mobo
I did not installed the app center. lately as experience I started do not respect gigabyte software.
I have serious audio problems with the mobo I came to conclusion my newer mobos (I have 3) will be asus and not gigabyte
They have very serious issue with QA

Additional thing is I am using Windows7 64bit
In Gigabyte site for this motherboard release a new audio driver for windows10 64bit
called by Creative Audio driver [RC1.11] by date 2015/09/01
Could be the solution still my OS is win7?

My feeling still it is not a driver but hardware problem.
My reason for that if it was software (driver) problem after restart may work but never works.
Only after I cut the power (AC Current to PS) then resupply power and restarting PC it works.

I am using the last version of Sound Blaster Recon3Di.msi
version1.03 39.11
Downloaded file from gigabyte site: mb_driver_audio_creative_8series.exe
Just got the board setup with an i5 7600k and right away i got a DRAM error led on and no boot.  4x4Gb G.Skill Ripjawz 4 DDR4 3000Mhz.  So i took out 3 and left one in what i presumed to be slot 1, according to the board.  No joy, tried them all 1 by 1 in this slot and nothing.  So trying other slots i found i could boot into bios with 1 single stick in slot 4 - bios reported this as slot 1 despite what the board and manual says. 

I upgraded the bios from F2 to F5 with F3 showing DRAM fixes and compatibility improvement.  Rebooted with the single stick and set xmp so the ram was now running 3000mhz.  All good until i put another stick in.  Again the board is misleading and i find i can get into bios with 2 sticks in 1 & 3 according to the bios, board actually says 4 & 2.  However once in the bios the overall memory shows as 4Gb and the slots show a 4gb stick in slot 1 and a 32gb stick in slot 3! I tried all combinations of ram and only 1 piece out of all 4 would boot this up in slot 1.  I got this 32Gb nonsense when i put any other in slot 3 (bios slot 3 not boards of course) and with 3 or 4 sticks it will crash out the bios until i reset the cmos.  Then back to the beginning again.

Now i did check the supported memory on the site and it is not listed, it is a quad channel kit eBuyer describes as "For 2011 V3 X99" however i have used quad channel kits many times without issues in dual channel board - just running in dual channel of course.

Spent 4 hours last night with this before finally putting in an RMA on the ram and ordering some G.Skill Ripjawz V dual channel kit 2x4gb x2.  Should be here today so hopefully i got bad/incompatible ram.

Anyone had any issues like this?  Surely i would have just got this running in dual channel with no problems...

Finally got the nvme to boot.

In short, the solution is to boot (with legacy BIOS) to a usb drive that contains another bootloader (i use clover with nvme driver and windows efi bootloader). The windows bootloader needs an entry to boot from the nvme, this can be done quite conveniently with a program called bootice.

Anyway,  the system now boots to nvme and deliveres disk drive speeds up to 814MB/s. The nvme could do more but the MB has pci-e 2.0 which is the bottleneck.

Ya.  On the laptop I'm on now...  RAM speed does not appear in my Task Manager > Performance Tab > Memory.  On my Z97 desktop its there and both are running build 1607 of W10x64.

Windows 7.
...the issue is the Motherboard/soundcard not my other specs.

This is a bummer, I have had my machine running for about 5 months now. Built around this motherboard GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0).

Im extremly dissappointed. My sound crashs frequently. Only fix is a restart, and it happens again. Most frequently it happens when in audio chat. The noise crashs to what sounsd like 8BIT and gets extremly loud. How can so many people have the same issue, and a solution has not been created? why did I leave Asus... I tried new drivers.... problem still happens... Not sure next step.  The other issue, while i have headphones and speakers plugged simultaneously. and boot up. THe speakers will not work. So i end up having to boot without the headphones connected, Then plug them in afterwards to back of pc... very annoying as its in back of computer desk hard to access. Sometimes if I unplug and plug in my audio jacks into the Golden ports in the back that gets the speakrs to work but then the headphones crap out.

All together......something is a miss with this onboard sound card? do i have options for sound cards.. 2 of what look like PCI slots a available? what can i do to get a new sound card instead of working with a PC i have to restart constantly to get good sound
I just want to thank you, good man! I am owner of  GA-P35C-DS3R and had same problems with Windows Update and OX8000FFFF. And now I'm just happy! )))))
