OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit or more recent.
Hardware requirements (AMD) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC40xx).
Hardware requirements (Intel) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/7xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC40xx).

Note : In order to know which drivers package to use, match the audio specifications of your motherboard with the apps or ask me.


TIPS :

If you want to manage the drivers (remove old/unused drivers for example) that you have in your Windows DriverStore
Use Driver Store Explorer (Right click on "Rapr.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you want better interrupts delivery latency
Enable MSI (Message Signaled-based Interrupts) mode on all your supported devices (see the column "supported modes") with
MSI Mode Utility (Right click on "MSI_Mode_Utility_v3.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you experience crackling, popping, audio stutter
Disable hibernation (Fast Startup included).

Uh... I just recently moved... what the heck happened to the forums here? All I see are the threads from MoKiChU (Thanks for the driver updates man, you are the bomb!).... but where'd the other threads go?! I know this is completely off topic, but could someone fill me in really quick?

Hi,

Regarding my threads you will always find them via the index in my signature.

If you are looking for where the Z370/Z390 Motherboards section has gone, Z490 Motherboards has been added to the section then the whole has been moved via a subcategory in Other Series Motherboards category : Maximus X/XI & Strix Motherboards (Z370/Z390/Z490)

Hi,

Go to Realtek Audio Control/Console > Recording Device tab > Use the Recording Volume & Microphone Boost to ajust it.

All the devices listed in "Audio inputs and outputs" are system devices, using system drivers which are not meant to be updated (whose version corresponds to the version of the system).

Thanks for your continued updates MoKiChU, no issues here with the latest drivers. They sound great!

Hello, my SSIII and SR3 launch this message: Current system is not compatible or audio driver is not installed properly.
I have my mobo (asus ROG STRIX z490-e) not long ago. I've used armoury crate to install and update drivers, but version numbers don't fit with the ones provided in Asus support web.
How do I proceed to update my sound drivers? I don't know wich one should I download from the first post.
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You have an ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboard, so :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS MB) from the first post of this thread.

Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process then your INSTALL process, for the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.
