    Asus ROG Maximus XIII Hero: Two Questions

    Good morning,

    after fiddling around with the Board and the 11900K for a week I have 2 questions:

    First: It seems that after loading the XMP-Profile ABT will not work - I have never seen a core going above 4.9 GHZ. I Have GSkill 4266 17-18-18-38 1.5V-Ram. Is this a known problem with the latest BIOS or did I miss something?

    Second: The onboard soundcard connected via optical cable to a DTS-Receiver doesnt produce a DTS or Dolby Digital signal, no matter what I try to set. Is this a known problem or are there any workarounds?

    Thanks

    I am certainly no expert on this, but as far as ABT, make sure you have a High Performance Power profile set. I have seen my system go to 5.6 GHz during game play, but I do not overclock..

    Most of the sound issues revolve around what you are outputting to. Does the system recognize your Receiver as a 5.1 or 7.1 system? Can you share a model number for the receiver?

    You need to set OC tuner to Auto. ABT is not working when XMP is enabled. Set your ram timings/frequency + voltage manualy and it will work.

    Does the audio control panel show DD or DTS? They are licensed technologies so not all motherboards have them as it would increase the price. If it didn't come with your board I believe you may be able to buy a license or just install a discrete audio card that comes with a license.

    You should also be able to get 5.1 audio using the analog ports if you have analog inputs on your receiver.

    I am not able to set DTS or DDL in the Audio Control Panel. The question is: What license do I have to buy and where? No idea.

    I may switch to a Creative Labs Soundcard though.

    Regarding XMP: When I don´t activate XMP I run into a Bluescreen 1 Minute after Windows Bootup (Clock...thingie). I have to read up how it works and will try it though.

    Thanks guys

    I'm not actually sure how the license works. I know I read something but it may have only applied to certain hardware that was "Ready" and just needed a license key. Sorry, wish I knew more.

    Personally I went the route of a dedicated card so if I change the motherboard it doesn't change my audio setup.

    Yeah. Seems to be the best way.

    Regarding the ABT: I will gladly wait for the next bios (otherwise I fry my board ) - I read in an other thread that they are going to tackle the mentioned problem, so it can´t be long.
