    Um, F-Stream Tuning isn't for the Z87 Extreme4.

    It's called A-Tuning for the Z87 EX4. That you even have F-Stream installed on this board may account for your particular headaches.

This is why I chose to build a new one. No Audio on HDMI right out of the box! May have to return it to Newegg and get something else. Please help if anyone can!

The problem with that is the motherboard software did not include this. I downloaded it from ASrock. When I went to use it I noticed a live update feature which updated my Bios and just like magic there was sound in the Bios and in windows. If I had it to do over again I would not buy this motherboard. ASrock should have known the Bios they were shipping the motherboard with had no audio. I have custom built many computers and this was my worst experience.

    The others in this thread fixed it with an Intel graphics driver change.

    Which BIOS version caused the HDMI sound problem you had?

    I'm sure A-Tuning is on the board's software disk. I don't think F-Stream is used on any of the ASRock Intel 8 series chipset boards, a few 7 series boards do, and 6 series boards.

    Sounds like a lot of audio problems right out of the box. Since that was apparently never fixed on your old board, it seems ASRock is doing a little better.

    How do you know the board provided no audio? That might have been just with a HDMI connection.

    Let's see, the number of board's I've owned where every BIOS version was perfect is... zero. Plus every experienced builder knows the first BIOS version for any board is a throw away.

    The board software had a tuning but there was no live update tab. The F Stream did. It also had the USB key software. Good point about the bios having bugs but no audio?
