    Don't use Armory Crate, it's buggy since they integrated Aura control. As for the chipset drivers, install the Intel ME firmware first which is found in the BIOS Tab on the support page. Then install the Intel INF Chipset drivers and the ME drivers. If you still can't install the Chipset drivers then use default BIOS settings and unplug any devices that isn't needed for Windows Installation like extra hard drives (extra NVMe drives) and any USB devices (Like Webcams and audio devices,etc). Also use secure boot.

    it was buggy from the start and has rootkit level behavior. That **** shouldn't be pushed through the bios. I just grabbed the IME drivers, then downloaded the intel support assistant to let it grab the chipset, wifi and bluetooth drivers. Asus always lags behind on those

    Thank You all for help problem is solved. I got now bigger one with bluetooth. I have denon envaya it works perfect with my asus laptop ROG G55JW. but it does not work well with my desktop. It works only very close to motherboard. my specs are
    MB: Maximus extreme XI bios 1302
    CPU: intel I9-9900k
    Graphics: ASUS STRIX RTX 2070 OC
    Mem: 2 x 8GB Corsair Dominator
    Audio: SB Creative AE-5
    2X Samsung SSD 970 PRO 512GB Inserted via DiMM
    Cooling NZXT Kraken x72
    Case: TT View 91 TG

    when i move speaker around case with opened glass panels it does not work on a top of it at all/ cooling radiator with fans is there/ at sides close to mb it works well. When moved away more then half meter it stops to work. What can it be ? is it possible that bluetooth is somehow damaged ? how to diagnose the problem ?

    I would say that the speaker is not magnetically shielded so the electromagnetic field is causing interference and effecting BlueTooth. You can tell if it is shielded, it would have a metal shield around the magnet so you can not see the magnet.

    I agree. It took me at least 1 hour to uninstall all the Aura bloatware that Armoury Crate installed including a deep registry clean.

    Ok but then why the same speaker works with my g551jw laptop without any problems then ? is there any utility to check strength of bluetooth signal ?
    i have bluetooth only in speaker and in my phone. i will check it with my phone and write back. AS i wrote above both devices working on bluetooth with laptop without any problems.

    We should start with the basic question: Did you connect the Wi-Fi antenna to the motherboard?

    I think I might have misunderstood what you did. I thought when you said you moved the speaker around, you meant just the speaker without its case [speaker box]. So please disregard what I said. I would think that a bluetooth speaker setup would use magnetically shielded speakers as a basic requirement.
