I have this board (GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - G1.Sniper 2 (rev. 1.0)), and I upgraded to Windows 8.1 x64 only to see that Gigabyte doesn't have 8.1 (or even 8 drivers for that matter) on their website. I tried getting updated drivers from the Creative website but when I installed them and launched any of the applications it error'd out saying I didn't have supported hardware installed. I was able to install the ones listed for Windows 7 x64 (from way back in 2011), but have found them to be a bit buggy, and the Mic recording kind of craps out which didn't happen in Win7. Has anyone had success using newer drivers? If so, where did you get them? I emailed Gigabyte and they blame Creative for not releasing newer ones, but I see that Creative posts newer drivers on their website, but they just don't work for this onboard card.

Please advise.

Thanks!
