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 (https://github.com/lostindark/DriverStoreExplorer/releases/latest) (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 (https://mega.nz/file/sYtzlCTY#nyj2hTuaK62Cw-xoRM3IP41udeUc75NA_ZoLOaR1XbU) (Right click on "MSI_util_v2.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you experience crackling, popping, audio stutter
Disable Fast Startup (https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1031533/) or totally disable hibernation (https://support.microsoft.com/help/920730/how-to-disable-and-re-enable-hibernation-on-a-computer-that-is-running) (Fast Startup included).

Hi,

Please avoid condescending, if you had taken the time to read the thread a minimum, it is a thread for SS1/SS2 notebooks (which need HDA - FF03 drivers and don't work with HDA - FF00 drivers that you linked) and not for SS3 notebooks (which need HDA - FF03 drivers too, but now use UAD drivers (https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?118396-DRIVERS-Realtek-Audio-(UAD-Notebooks)), because the HDA drivers are now legacy/obsolete/no more updated).
