    the only other thing i can think of is changing registry values do disable the GPU audio. I can only guess that this would halt the GPU audio drivers and letting the analog take over? However i will have to do some web-research to find which registry entry controls audio items. If anyone know this info please do tell :D

    I had a little google search, and can't find any similar problems. I hope you do sort it though.

    If so, please post your findings here if possible. Anyone else who encounters this issue would find a solution invaluable.

    NP! Internet was fairly useless on the topic. I sent a message at gigabyte's site for tech support, linking this forum to show what has been done to correct the issue. I'm just looking for an answer. Even if the answer is RMA. I'm just trying to explore every option before going through that process.

    Note: All of my rigs since my first build have had atleast a Gigabyte mobo. This is the first issue I have ever had with the brand. Yes this sucks, but years of satisfaction vs. 1 issue, doesnt change my opinion any. Future rigs will still have Gygabyte products.

    So none of the 185 drivers work for you? Just checking since you did not mention other versions

    Have you tried installing the latest RealTek drivers after your GFX Driver install? Latest is here >>
    Realtek

    You did check all the devices to be sure they are not muted after your driver installs too correct? Just checking as this has been known to happen

    Users also have this issue with ATI so do not feel alone in this. It can be corrected, just have to narrow down why you cannot get it fixed is all.

    If you want tonight I will download the driver and extract it all and see if I can remove the sound part of it and leave the main drivers files for you. If so I will re-upload it for you. What version would you like me to attempt this with?

    I am currently running the 182.50 drivers for nvidia. Anything in the 185.xx range is unstable and the resolution keeps switching in and out of 1080p format for my tv.

    Also I'm not sure what drivers come on my mobo disc but i have been working with the realtek high def 2.23 drivers. Neither the 2.23 nor the disc drivers work after gpu drivers are installed

    Everytime i install drivers the volumes are unmuted and at 66%

    Well first I would advise you download and try the latest Realtek linked above as that may fix it

    If not, I will grab the driver you mention above tonight and see if I can do what I mentioned about removing the sound part of the driver. Ill let you know

    Well did you have any luck just installing the latest New RealTek drivers? Sorry I could not properly remove the sound aspects of the Nvidia driver package like I thought I might be able to

    If you still have no luck, please try the two methods mentioned in the last post here >>
    P5N-E SLI Realtek HD Audio, drivers install correctly, but no sound any tips? - Tech Support Forum

    hi there. First post :)
    I am running Ex58-extreme at bclk=165x21. memory at 1650 cl8, vdimm=1.64V. To get it stable I have to set QPi/VTT to 1.38V.
    Is it possible to run memory at 2000 on this board?
    It requires very high QPI/VTT. For example: to boot at 2000 I need QPi/VTT=1.56V!!!!!!! That is really high.
    As far as I know other boards require less voltate on QPi/VTT.
    Is it a bios related problem?

    I can't get my board stable beyond 196 BCLK. I have tried several ranges of voltages. Can boot at 200, 205 - black screen. Bios F7.
    So, I am not satisfied.

    sry, wrong thread.

    It is mostly all up to your CPU how much QPI Voltage you need to run higher ram speeds, you can try using a different ram multi, like higher or lower Blck with a different ram multi. You can also try higher Uncore freq, as well as trying more IOH and ram voltage

    Some CPU's just need 1.5+ to run 2000Mhz ram speed, so your's just may be one of them they are all different. I use 1.4-1.43 for 200Mhz on my setup, but of course the ram itself matters as well. And how much Other voltages you wish to push instead of QPI/Vtt

    I would suggest you try the latest Beta BIOS (F8b) as it may be better for you >>

    Still havent gotten sound to work. After doing the "driver dance" the issue is still questionable between the nvidia drivers or the video card itself. I'm trying to avoid an RMA cause i dont have a back up card. I did send a question to Gigabyte through there website itself, but tech support for any company will take days.
