    Note : In order to know which Install/Update process 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_util_v3.exe" > Run as administrator).

    If you experience crackling, popping, audio stutter
    Disable Fast Startup or totally disable hibernation (Fast Startup included).

    Is there any difference between the 4/20 and 4/24 links? I get the same filename for the HDA - ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF DTS&RTK driver? I am the one with the Maximus Hero VIII and was just getting around to downloading the drivers.... Guess I will go without sonic suite 2.

    I realized it was so long since I looked at this I was actually running the version 6.0.1.8468 drivers from the Asus driver page (didn't even remember doing that update a while ago) which did not give me 5.1 audio in the supremeFX tab test although I get pseudo 5 speaker sound from stereo. Even without Sonic Studio 2. Very strange. Will I still get fake 5.1 from stereo with this driver and without Sonic Studio 2? And I assume it will bring back my "real" 5.1 audio where the test will work in all 5.1 speakers?

    I am assuming since I never had the DTS stuff nor do I need it, if I do not want to worry about Sonic Suite 2, I can just use this driver and not install all the DTS stuff? So just use this uninstall/install process?

    NSTALL

    /!\ Only if you already had Realtek HD Audio Driver installed /!\
    1) Uninstall it (Start > Settings > Apps) then restart your PC
    2) Launch Driver Store Explorer > Check the boxes of all versions of drivers which .inf starts with (if you find them) :
    dts | a-volute | avolute | hdx | realtek
    3) Check the box "Force Deletion" then click on the "Delete Package" button then restart your PC
    4) Perform a cleanup of the registry (with CCleaner Free or others)

    - Launch "Setup.exe" > "Next" > The installer will ask you to restart your PC > "Finish"



    Thanks,

    Hi,

    You need Realtek Audio Drivers (HDA - ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF MB) for your ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Hero. Follow scrupulously the INSTALL process (with cleanup step) of ASUS ROG SS1/SS2 motherboards category.

    Here is a official description of what functions SS2 have : https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1033006/

    The configuration of the audio channels (Stereo, 5.1, etc.) is done via Realtek HD Audio Manager/SupremeFX (via tray icon or via Control Panel).
    The configuration of the Surround/Upmix is done via Sonic Studio II.

    You need Realtek Audio Drivers (HDA - ASUS ROG SSx) for your ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Hero. Follow scrupulously the INSTALL process (with cleanup step & SS2/SR2 apps) of ASUS ROG SSx motherboards category.

    Here is a official description of what functions SS2 have : https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1033006/

    The configuration of the audio channels (Stereo, 5.1, etc.) is done via Realtek HD Audio Manager/SupremeFX (via tray icon or via Control Panel).
    The configuration of the Surround/Upmix is done via Sonic Studio II.

    If on the other hand if you are not wanting to use SS2/SR2 apps (and therefore you don't want SS2 Surround/Upmix feature), you can use Realtek HD Audio Drivers (HDA - ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF DTS&RTK) by following scrupulously the INSTALL process (with cleanup step) of ASUS ROG/PRIME/TUF RTK motherboards category.
    Thanks. I got all that down😀.
    Just asking if there is a difference between the download link at the top of the post and the second download link. I get the same filename.

    Also, I am aware how to setup 5.1 but it has not worked with my last 2 driver versions. Wonder if this will fix that.

    Thanks a lot!

    I understand now what you mean, the fact that you talk about date ("the 4/20 and 4/24 links") has misled me.

    These are the same links.

    You do not seem to know my way of proceeding : The first post of my threads is edited over the water and always includes the latest drivers packages versions and all the install/update processes, while my update posts are there for indicate the release of the latest drivers package version and indicates that the first post of the thread is updated accordingly.

    I hope I was clear enough.

    100% clear, thanks!

    Any thoughts on these drivers fixing my 5.1 issue or is that luck of the draw? I am leaning towards the "non-SS2" ones due to the vulnerability...

    I'm not up to date on my ROG models. Do any of these drivers work for STRIX Z390-F?
