SOLUTION ASUS Strix Soundcard - Strix Soar RAID PRO and DLX - Cold Boot Not Recognize

On a russian site (thx to user Kirych___83 for the tip) i found a solution to get your
soundcard back to work, if she dont get recognize at cold boot or for any other reasons.
It's only for people who are out of warranty and don't care if it breaks.

I did it on my Strix RAID DLX 4 days ago and my Soundcard works again.. no problems anymore.
At first I had extreme doubts that it would work and that it would be so easy.

For ASUS Strix Soar and ASUS Strix RAID PRO: (the two cards are almost identical)
Remove the two ceramic capacitors marked in red on the picture.

Do it on your own risk and only if you dont have warranty anymore. I only tested it on the ASUS Strix RAID DLX.

Im about to do it on my xonar essence 3. 
These has to be the right ones right?
Do you have the adress to the russian site? 
And yes ASUS, its really really bad when a hardware manufacturer cant get their hardware to work on the latest OS.
Like selling cars that cant run on gas
