    r2.70 is the same ones found on here

    what you mean by distortion? sometimes you have to set 7.1 audio and disable the side speakers to get 5.1 sound

    Sorry I was a bit unclear, it's only the sound from the microphone that's distorted. Other sounds are ok.

    I think I've tried all settings.
    Seems like I'm not the only one: GA-X79-UD5 & Windows 8 x64 = Onboard Microphone distorted
    I bought a usb headset now, that one works fine. I have logged a case with Gigabyte, will post their answer.

    I installed a beta bios F12p, and that helped!

    There is also new 2.71 version drivers out from realtek:
