I have gone through as many routes as I can to completely rid my system of any traces of Realtek audio drivers or similar audio codecs/software. Still no sound.
For sanity sakes I tested it with my TV and the Logitech z906 does indeed work, just not with my desktop 😞

I was wondering, non related to my issue, if your z906 overheats and freezes up which requires a fan being placed on the internal heatsink to prevent this problem. I got mine factory refurbished and noticed it would freeze-up after a hour and upon placing my hand on the back of the unit it was extremely hot. I guess they didn't engineer the heat dissipation very well so I spliced a 5V 1amp fan to an old 5V 500ma phone charger to keep it cool and it's still working but i'd really like to take it apart to see what can be done to better aid in its thermals.


Absolutely no problem on my side with overheating! In fact, I even take the liberty to use the large subwoofer like a kind of stool and rest my legs on it while I am sitting on my desk (even now, hahaha). :D:D:D
On the other hand, your post made me curious and I placed my hand on the back - it is warm but far from "extremely hot". But I wasn't playing any music at that moment so I might check back later.

The only minor issue (if I can call it an issue) that I have noticed is that if I leave the audio system idle for a couple of hours or more, then I find the console switched off by itself. It might be some energy saving feature, I don't know.

If this overheating problem could be a good reason for RMA or replacement, consider doing it. 😉

Perhaps they fixed this issue and you got lucky. Just thought i'd mention it because I got this a long time ago an never met anyone with the same issue as me. Seems like you got the better unit with better cooling

I use the S/PDIF for connecting my tv's sound system on the pc, as long as I select the correct output from the os and the media player program or games, it works from there normally, no issues whatsoever with the S/PDIF. No heat on the back side no matter if I play music for hours or not.

Is it my idea or indeed all the other manufacturers already released the new bioses with the new agesa code and we are last again?

I am more eager to get BIOS that supports the upcoming AMD Zen 3 CPUs (to be officially presented on Oct 8th, sales start shortly after that). 😄

The newer agesa that ALL other manufacturers have released for a couple of weeks now does support ZEN 3 and some optimizations to reduce latency between cores

Still no news for new bios, I am checking both US/EU sites and the China one.
For when they release new bios:
" The feature is called as"PBO Fmax Enhancer", and it will be available in the "Ai Tweaker/Precision Boost Override" -menu among others of the "Precision Boost Override" related options, on compatible ASUS motherboards. This feature is exclusive to Zen 2 based Ryzen 3000-series CPUs ("Matisse" & "Starship") and it will work on both, the consumer (AM4) and HEDT (sTRX40) platforms."

Personally, I do not own 1800X but as the page says "Validated since BIOS", IMO this means that any BIOS after 1409 would do the job. I doubt that they would drop the support for this CPU in later versions, otherwise this would make them totally incompatible for older CPU owners.

Keep your eye out for another BIOS update. AMD released new chipset drivers today...

Usually BIOS updates follow chipset driver updates. Could be a few days, a week or two, but probably around the corner.
