OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit or more recent.
Hardware requirements (AMD) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with AMD 3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/8xx series chipsets (except ROG with ALC40xx).
Hardware requirements (Intel) : ASUS ROG/TUF/PRIME motherboards with Intel 2xx/3xx/4xx/5xx/6xx/7xx/8xx 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).

Hi,

Information :

You have an ASUS ROG SS3 motherboard, so :

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


Cleanup :

- 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


Install :

The UAD/DCH drivers being modular, you can install your drivers by these different types of install from the most complete to the lightest :

MoKiChU wrote:
Intended to work like this by ASUS :

- Full : Follow scrupulously your INSTALL process (with or without installing SS3 apps).


Not intended to work like this by ASUS (at your own risk) :

- Realtek Only : Delete the ThirdParty folder from AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_ASUS_ROG_SS3_MB_v6.0.xxxx.x folder then follow scrupulously your INSTALL process (without installing SS3 apps).

- Realtek Minimal (such as Microsoft built-in drivers, without Realtek app) : Right click on HDXASUS.inf (in AUDIO_Realtek_UAD_ASUS_ROG_SS3_MB_v6.0.xxxx.x\Realtek\Codec_xxxx.x folder) > Install > Wait for the message "The operation completed successfully" or for restart request.


For the next drivers packages that I would release, you will can directly follow the UPDATE process (with same install type).


Note if you choose the Full install type : If you want to uninstall Sonic Suite Companion once your drivers are installed, launch Sonic Suite Companion via tray icon then click Uninstall Companion.

Note if you choose the Realtek Only install type : Equalizer in Realtek Audio Control/Console will not work (present and visible but not functional) since it is based on SS3 APO (hardware) and that SS3 APO SWC Driver is not installed.
