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).

@MoKiChU Many thanks for the updates 🙂

I have ROG STRIX X470-F GAMING mobo but I'm facing two issues with the latest updates.

The first one when I try to open Sonic Studio 3 while playing any sound, it takes sometime then throw an error that this system is not supported .
And to solve this I have to restart NahimicService from the task manager or restart the system.

The second issue when I enable the Upmix/Surround option to have the sound out of all my 4 speakers; the sound quality then reduces dramatically.
That doesn't happen if I installed the mobo's support page drivers.

Note. I'm installing (Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3 MB) from OP and also followed all the instructions carefully, even do clean install each time I update the drivers.


Hi,

You have an ASUS ROG SS3 motherboard, so :

You need Realtek Audio Drivers (UAD - ASUS ROG SS3 MB) Gen1 or Gen2 (Recommended) from the first post of this thread.

Follow this :

- Follow scrupulously your CLEANUP process.
- Use this SS3 Cleaner tool (Right click on "A-Volute_SS3_Cleanup.exe" > Run as administrator) then restart your PC
- Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process.
- For the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow your UPDATE process.

Hi everyone,

@ ASUS ROG SS3 motherboards users & ASUS ROG SS3|DTS Sound Unbound motherboards users :

I'm starting to get sick of these Gen questions : Since Gen2 drivers are Gen1 & Gen2 motherboards compatible, thereby there is no more Gen1 drivers on the thread, so there is no more confusion. Those who do not agree with that just have to use the drivers from their motherboards support page.


Thread, post & drivers packages updated.

Thanks for sharing the drivers. Unfortunately I have a little problem. Motherboard is ASUS Crosshair VIII Impact.
While installing "UAD - ASUS ROG SS3-DTS MB" it hangs for a long time while installing the DTS extension. Then it restarts. Afterwards, looking at device manager, the DTS extension is not listed under "Software components". However "Driver store explorer" lists the DTS extension. Finally installed "DTS Sound Unbound" and everything seems to be working fine. Its lists DTS as licensed and appears to be working. Does this mean it installed correctly or not? Thank you.


Hi,

Yes, this mean it installed correctly.

Thank you for your efforts in trying to solve peoples problems and I have tried everything that you said in first thread and still having problems with the sound it works for a short while then starts playing up volume being soft and no matter which driver I try I cannot get sound volume back and only way to get round it is to do an in-place repair upgrade. I am starting to regret getting this rog strix b460-f gaming motherboard because of the sound problems so thank you again for helping people sort out sound problems. I am running Windows 10 21h2 version.

Hi @MoKiChU, and whoever else that may like to help,

I write this with a lot of frustration.. I've been looking to do a new OS install so I can begin more 3D work but there's something very wrong or weird..
Motherboard in question is Asus (X570) ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi); (Audio device/integrated, Realtek ALC1220 )

I have spent days, weeks combined trying to figure out why the sound stops working. In the current Windows I have its a cluttered mess with random blue screens, but the audio works. Sound comes from the speakers.


I've done a lot of variations. Made countless images of individual "windows 10 installs", done 'reset my PC'. In each and every case I tried multiple different steps or orders, such as disabling the "automatic driver install" within system/protection. Used DDU to remove all audio drivers. Used the 'default' audio driver package Asus has - which is the most insulting set of software and bloat they have in the entire motherboard industry combined. Used the manual method of individually installing each driver/.inf file, this applies to your driver package as well as theirs. Yes, I'd have no success & restore a fresh image/wiped it after creating MSinfo32 reports/Registry backup/DoubleDriver export of all the drivers (from within a WinPE tool/recovery environment) and saved it elsewhere - and again try a new configuration or procedure. For further "tests", I would stay inside the OS despite not having audio & would attempt everything from disabling audio enhancements, restarting the Windows Audio (+ Endpoint) service, checking Windows Update, attempting the "audio troubleshooter", unplugging & plugging back in the 3.5mm cable, going back into Device Manager & manually selecting the 'have disk' to locate the same drivers that are already installed when running the bat/script you've made (if it all already sounds insane... It's because it has been :/). Along windows update I would also open & check for MS store updates as well. Installing the drivers while offline as well (yours. Then asus. Then yours but manually. Same for asus. Each time after restoring a new, fresh empty & updated windows 10 image..).


With that said I may still even be failing to add more of the things I've done or tried, because of the amount it's been and how little rest I've had. I'd pause & go back into the unstable OS temporarily, do some work/game; knowing every time I would still have to spend time to make ANOTHER image so I can restore everything safely, with whatever most recent work/browsing/gaming/etc I had done. Then.. Unplug all my drives except the NVMe's, as they're physically inaccessible without removing a set of waterblocks/custom loop. This is mostly a personal thing, just to remove any chance of accidentally installing windows on the wrong drive or entirely formatting the wrong drive, etc. Regardless the OS/apps all reside in the single SSD so as to allow for quicker operation/tasks.


This one is more for a humorous example of the experiences I've had..

In one "test", I decided to see what would happen if Asus ARMOURY was enabled & installed (who knows, maybe it'd be able to find/update drivers); immediately the system itself became unstable and blue screen six times in a row when access the desktop- that's all within a fresh Windows 10 install that ONLY has display drivers & CPU/chipset drivers.. Also, It was never able to even load anything within the Tools tab, nothing for Drivers, Individual Kits- you name it, even the manual!?! I figured I'd mention that one because I found it hilarious - as much as unimaginably furious - it must be said or labeled everywhere as a PSA to all to avoid Asus's software.

Edit: added missing " @ ".


Hi,

Your issues do not seem to concern only audio, I advise you to do a Windows 10 21H2 or Windows 11 clean install (and not a restore) after BIOS update to the last (if it is not done yet) : https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/BIOS/ROG-CROSSHAIR-VIII-HERO-WIFI-ASUS-3904.ZIP.

You need these drivers for your ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WiFi) motherboard :

[DRIVERS] Intel Ethernet/WiFi/Bluetooth

- Intel Ethernet Drivers (Drivers Only) :

Hey, thank you so much for taking the time to respond! I appreciate the effort you put into the community & the help you've offered so many.

I will make a new Windows install media & use the resources you've provided & submit the progress hopefully by the following morning.

Hi MoKiChu, I've found what was wrong & it wasn't related to anything other than the Realtek Audio Console itself. It's a persistent & re-creatable issue as well.

Edit: The issue I've isolated to being Realtek Audio Console, there is a bug of some sort I encountered no matter even during a full clean Windows install AND clean driver installation. To fix/remediate it, open the Audio Console application > Device advanced settings > Under "Connector Retasking", toggle BOTH Back panel & Front panel -green- between Headphones/Front Speaker Audio. Doing so will return audio and you should have sound again.

I hope this helps others!
