It didn't make any difference for me
Hello...I lose the on-board audio upon a reboot. Happens every time. Uninstalling the Creative drivers, reboot, install the latest drivers from the GB site (tried the disc' as well) but this has not resolved the issue. Pretty vanilla set up (more music orientated than games these days), web surfing, basic tasks etc..Lost faith in Creative some time ago but never like Realtek audio so gave this a shot. If there are no immediate fixes will have to get a sound card. F6 bios 12/16/2015. Any thoughts? Quality of audio once back up and rolling is good. Have some Klipsch 2.1's with sub so it sounds pretty sweet.DC42 GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel MotherboardIntel Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I56600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530EVGA GeForce GTX 960 04G-P4-3967-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+Rosewill Capstone-G750, Capstone G Series 750W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Gold Certified, Single +12V Rail, SLI & Crossfire G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) SAMSUNG 850 PRO 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7KE256BWASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit - OEM
DC42, your problem is really different from the one stated here by us others. Our problem is the distortion of the audio all of a sudden while playing.It's a problem that is going on for a lot of Gigabyte motherboards based on SoundCore 3di, especially when running Windows 10. It's time Gigabyte takes its responsibilities and do something. Read the post of this guy in August 2015 on this same forum, with Sniper M5 (SoundCore 3di based!) and listen to his audio sample, that it's the same garbled we have from time to time.
It's happening on my PC again right now. Tried switching between 2.1 - 5.1 but it makes no difference.
Same!And guess what? This audio chipset isn't new to this ****: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cb34Vamv9kw
Is this only affecting those who are using 5.1 audio or headphones? I've never experienced this problem, but I have a 2.1 setup and use bluetooth headphones.I think it's ridiculous that Gigabyte doesn't monitor their own message board.
