I never used it, but isn't it just selecting the "SPDIF interface" output as default device instead of "Speakers" in Windows?

Hey guys and thanks for continually posting awesome information. I troll around and have picked up some useful tips. Thank you for that. The particular problem I am coming across is this.. I have a UD5H, and I just dusted off an older HTR-6130 receiver. It has toslink out, and a digital coaxial out, among other things.

Right now I have about 4 cords strung together from the RCA outputs in the receiver, to the 3.5mm input on the back of my pc. I know I must be losing some sound quality here, but I don't know what to do.

I read what was written earlier about using the proper media player, like Vlc, to be able to use the toslink out. I wasn't able to understand if there was a special way that I needed to enable this, so I haven't tried it yet. My major concern though is that about 95% of the movies I watch are on XBMC, 3% on netflix, and the remainder from downloaded torrents. I'd like to make use of the 5.1 speaker surround sound setup I poured my last paycheck into, but I cannot figure out what my next move is.

Please..please please help me figure out what I need to do in order to accomplish at least a few of my goals. Thanks!

Easy, use the toslink, optical cable from your ud5h to receiver. This is a digital connection and will work much better for sound and movie playback than analog 3.5 connections, especially if you want dolbly digital or dts surround. Make the optical output the default sound output on your comp. Then watch netfilx and enjoy (no digital surround sound from netflix tho), use vlc or powerdvd for you movies you torrent or download. Powerdvd is better than vlc for HD movies. Hope this helps.

on the ud3h mixing via + intel usb has been the worse fail in history, i will never buy another mobo in my life with via crap, i swear

1 year has passed and i still have usb issues, after trying every driver, bios, etc

the main problem i believe is that i use all my usb, and the mobo has no enough power to use them all properly

usb printer
x360 pad
usb wifi
usb hdd
usb flashdrive
usb mouse
usb micro usb cable for nexus 4

sometimes when i plug my hdd, flash drive, cable, (anything) all the other usb dies, i have to restart pc or unplug something

my x360 pad can´t work on every usb slot, the same goes for my wifi usb, and the same for my mouse, lol, really gigabyte?

also another bad thing about ud3h is boot speed, wow, that is so slow, it is lame, sure i know having raid add some time, but still ud3h takes too much time, my pc and laptop have ssd and win8, my laptop starts almost 2x faster than my pc,, just after you press power it takes like 5-10secs to show password screen, also bios development stopped like in november 2012, there are betas but way too unstable

i am going asus the next time

I use USB Wifi, 360 pad, USB headphones, USB powered HDD and charge my phone all at the same time with no issues. Plus my mouse and keyboard are plugged into the two USB 2 ports in the back. Your printer isn't powered by the port, so the only real difference in USB power is that the UD5H has a higher powered USB 2 header for rapid charging.

Keep is mind that ASUS uses an on board hub as well, even on the Z87 boards only two USB 3 ports at the rear are powered by the chipset directly.

I had USB issues at first but after I let windows 8 update for the first time everything was fine and I haven't had any problems since.

Are all of the ports 900mA on a D3H? I think the front ones are as my phone charges very fast compared to my laptop tongue.gif

If it's really cheaper, buy the Z77X-UD3H. The two are pretty similar, but the Z77X-D3H is (mainly) missing some luxury features that are on the UD3H like an error display and buttons for power and stuff.

Just keep using your Extreme6. It's not much of an upgrade.

So I had an idea.

In speedfan, I see 3 PWM controls with my UD3H. If I understand correctly, one is the system fans, one is the CPU fan header PWM, and the third is also the CPU fan header but it modifies the voltage, not the PWM signal, allowing control of 3 pin fans.

So I was thinking about using a 4 pin extension and seperating the PWM wire. That leaves normal 3 pin to be controlled in the voltage manner. Then add the PWM wire to another header and add either molex power or power from a non-pwm header. And now instead of 2 sets of fans I would now have 3 that I can control.

Thoughts?

You can set the CPU fan to PWM control in the BIOS, then switch it from automatic to manual control. I control my H220 this way, the pump is connected to the CPU fan header and the fans are on a System fan header, all controlled by Speedfan.
