So, here I am two weeks after my post above. The audio issues were non-existent for several days and then just now I was playing Overwatch and suddenly the awful screeching and underwater distortion came back in full force randomly. The only thing I can do is restart my PC which will "fix it" for a while (until it comes back).What should I do? Contact the seller? Contact Gigabyte for an RMA? I really don't want to be without my board for several weeks.
Has anyone with this issue opened a ticket with Gig. support?
czar4you,I've been having the same sound distortion and extreme volume problems with my Gigabyte Z170X Gaming GT. I tried updating the BIOS and Sound Card drivers many times, with no avail.I recently tried custom drivers for my onboard creative card (PAX drivers). So far they are working well. I installed them as "driver only", but plan to try the software suite if the problem remains fixed.Here is a link to the download:http://www.hardwareheaven.com/community/threads/gigabyte-z170-recon3d-drivers-help.233458/-Allied
