    Default jayfunks overclock is losing sound....

    hey guys great site you got here!
    sure hope someone has some ideas to help me.
    basically my asus xonar sound card is losing sound and becoming super quiet. this happens when i overclock to my 4.2 ht settings and the only way to get sound back is to clear cmos. loading optimized defaults does not work. so obviously something is getting changed and the sound card is not happy.
    what else can i say.. here are my settings and id sure appreciate some help here. thanks again in advance.

    gigabyte ex58 ud5
    i7 965
    asus xonar d2x sound
    corsair 3 gig 1600 ram
    1000 psu silverstone
    gtx 280 sli

    25x168 = 4.2
    ht on turbo off
    qpi = x36 = 6.04
    mem = x10 = 1680
    vcore = 1.46875
    qpivtt = 1.455
    ioh core = 1.18
    dram = 1.64
    term = 0.76
    cpu pll = 1.8 manual default
    pcie = 1.5 manual default
    qpipll = 1.1 manual default
    ich i/o = 1.5 manual default
    ioh core = 1.1 manual default

    cpu enhanced halt state off
    c3/c6/c7 state support off
    cpu thermal monitor off
    cpu eist function off
    virtualization ON
    bi-directional prOchot off

    cpu clock drive 700 mV unchanged
    pci express clock drive 700 mV unchanged
    cpu and ioh skew 0ps unchanged

    azalia codec disabled to turn off onboard sound


    well thats it. all i can think of is that there is a voltage somewhere that i missed that needs to increased to go along with the overclock. maybe pcie voltage?? maybe pcie express frequency? maybe pci express clock drive?
    i dunno. please help any ideas greatly appreciated...
    cheers

    I would first make sure you have set PCIE frequency to 100. It shouldn't matter on modern boards but it's a good place to start.

    Are you able to use a different slot for the sound card. I know there's a 1x slot closest to the CPU. Does your board also have a third full length PCIe slot? If so, and if your second GFX card doesn't block it, you could try installing it there.

    PCIe Voltage can be tweaked if you want to try it, but don't go too high. Not sure what the increments are, but no more than 0.2V increase if it's in 0.1V increments, preferably no more than 0.1V if the increments are finer, as an initial test.

    thanks for your reply bud...
    ive tried manually setting the pcie freq to 100 and my computer will not post anything. just black screen. maybe i the frequency needs more juice but im not sure which one. pcie voltage im guessing is this right>?
    thanks again..

    If nothing else works, just use the on-board audio- which is excellent. U think its possible the sound card is going bad? Have you tried the on-board audio to be sure it is the audio card causing?

    Onboard audio is OK, but no where near as good as he'll get from his Asus Xonar. It has superior signal to noise ratio, better hardware support for audio formats like EAX and will completely eliminate any interference (clicks/squeals when using the mouse wheel, screeches caused by proximity to graphics cards etc), not to mention they're quite expensive (50+) cards.

    Other than Changing slots and upping PCIe voltage a tad, looks like the OP might be forced to use the Realtek chip. Shame though.

    IF i were having on-board audio issues, i would opt for one. I know they guy spent close to $100 for it, but if its giving him a headache, i just dont think its worth it IMO. My brother uses a 5.1 setup with on-board audio and it sounds great, i mean , i dont know how much better it could sound so i cant really comment on that. I use Philips 2.1 speakers and i must say, for $40 , its one of the best purchases i made. Sound quality is excellent as far i as i know as i have never hooked up some bose or klipsch to on-board and compared them to an audio card.

    Best of luck to you Mr. Funk.

    hey guys and thanks so much for your time and input!!
    it seems like ive solved the problem. all i did was download the latest beta bios drivers. f9 i think and so far so good seems to be holding strong.
    yeah this sound card is really amazing with lots of power and it was a shame to have my nice overclock and no sound.
    so thanks again and take'er easy guys
