Possibly a silly question, but are you powering the card correctly?
Also, what is the old card?

I could use some advice regarding the sound being too low with this motherboard. I don't have a sound card & only use Sennheiser 598 headphones through this soundbar that came with my monitor (u2412m). The issue is that I can barely hear anything. I have to turn the speaker volume all the way up to get to medium.

Should I get a sound card or is there something else I should try? The system sound is all the way up.

Oh, I tried plugging the headphones directly into the Fractal R4 case and that didn't do much better.

Try enable "Loudness Equalization" in the Enhancement tab. (Right-click the speaker icon in notification area & choose Playback Device. Then select the playback device & click Properties button.)

Also make sure you didn't forget to turn up the volume in the monitor OSD.

Thank you. I just enabled the loudness equalization and that did help.
I don't have an OSD for the sound though.

I'm using the drivers that windows 7 found & installed. I didn't install the realtek drivers. I mean, I did a while back, but it didn't do anything noticeable so I just used the basic drivers.

Maybe I should just get a sound card?

As far as I remember the built-in audio is fine. I recommend downloading the drivers from the webpage, it may fix your issue without that large of a footprint on your system. Running the UI is optional, you can simply call it on-demand. smile.gif

Thanks, I'll give it a try again and see if there is anything I can tinker with. If not, I'll just pick up an Asus Sonar DGX 5.1 pcie card. Couldn't hurt.

My Corsair 8GB of RAM turns out to be damaged, based on the memtest I performed. I'm looking to upgrade to two 8GB sticks of memory. Can someone recommend a memory that will work with this motherboard?
post #6908 of 6915
Hi Guys, I am having crashing issues with my PC at the moment so was just wondering if this looks up to date.

OS: Windows 10 pro
Bios ver: 2104 x64
Build date: 08/13/2013
EC ver: MBEC-Z77-0131
ME ver: 8.1.0.1248

Do I need to update anything or does this look about right?

Tom

I use this kit in mine, but there are several Corsair kits you could choose if you prefer them over G Skill. G Skill can usually save you a few bucks over Corsair without giving up any performance or reliability though. Adata, Crucial and a few other brands are all really good as well, but I have less experience with them and don't know much beyond what I've read in reviews.

G.SKILL F3-14900CL9Q-16GBXL(XMP) 16GB ( 4x 4GB )


Here is a link to the ASUS product support page for the mobo though. There are 3 PDF links on this page that show all the kits that have been tested on the board. Other kits can work, but you might have to play with the timings and voltage to get them to run stable at the speeds you want. I would recommend sticking to kits on these lists. In addition to that I would also recommend you stick to kits that are rated for 1.5v instead of 1.65v. They tend to run cooler and give more overhead for overclocking.

I have a question regarding with this motherboard. For some reason every time i boot my pc it keeps asking me to go into bios and i wondered why cuz at first it was telling me i have a bad rpm fan. I thought maybe it was a minor thing. So what i did was shut down and find the fan port i used and i plugged it into a different fan port and it turns out the same error. So i moved my header plug from my Corsair self sealed cooler into the cpu fan port then tried a different fan to see which ports were bad. So it turns out the fan itself is really bad with RPM. So i decided to use a different fan i had from my older cases and they work fine. So i figured out it was a bad fan. I dunno why i moved the Corsair Cooler plug back into CPU 1 Fan it's supposed to be in the CPU fan 2.

So upon reboot it always asks me to get in bios without any error and it's annoying. Not to mention my dates and time and months are wrong when i enter the desktop i keep changing it to 2017 jan. This happens every single time when i boot into my windows desktop and it tells me i have to change the date and month and time. Just windows not bios. Making sure you don't get confused. What gives? Does this mean i need to replace the CMOS battery? Is it dying or my motherboard got a bit of short or what? Advice please..

Should i move the plug from my CPU 1 Fan back to 2nd and order a new fan? As for the battery should i get a new one or just save my profile in bios and pull the battery out and put it back and see if that fixes things after i set everything right and restart one more time? I need suggestions.. thanks.

Hope this isn't all confusing. I will be more detailed as soon i find my manual.thumb.gif

Update: Still does the same thing no matter what upon reboot. I have to end up in bios and leave then go to desktop and change time of date. I am so frustrated. I ran for viruses and there is NONE. Got to be something tied to my motherboard. I need help here.

UPDATE:
Turns out i may have a bad battery and now i am peeved. I have to take the whole motherboard out and replace the armor and find the battery. Jeez why is there a design flaw in this one? Battery is covered! What is ASUS thinking?! Glad i found this.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSTTR_WVtx0


Bad thing about this motherboard is the design flaw. No access to the battery to reset it. You'd have to take out the motherboard and unscrew the stuff behind the motherboard and then replace the battery. What a horrible hassle and headache to do that. I have half a mind to just leave the armor off.
