Still getting used to this board and need some advice. I'm getting a fair bit of vdroop so I changed LLC from Level 1 to Level 2 and got worse vdroop. I understood that level 1 was LLC off and level 5 was the highest setting or have I got this wrong?
post #595 of 1118
Other way around. 1 is the strongest setting.

5 allows for the most vdroop.

I like the board. It has a lot of options but in straight forward places.

I played with a ROG board and I found the bios to be somewhat confusing. That's what ultimately led me to the oc formula.

post #596 of 1118
Thanks. So I shouldn't be getting much if any vdroop at level 1, right? My main rig is a Maximus Formula V and I love it but this is a better board IMO

UPDATE: I'm getting the hang of this board. 5GHz @ <1.3v. Not too shabby

If anyone here with a hometheatre/surround system has it working fine with games I'd be interested to know. I currently have an older mobo with a discrete soundcard doing this job. It would be nice to find out if this mobo supports this out of the box. It's hard to find out info about the ALC898 let alone its' features with individual mobo's.

Can the hdmi out be used as a sound output or is it tied into onboard video?

Cheers

It's a bit late I'm sure, but since no one ever answered this part of your question, I'll go ahead and let you know that:

YES - the digital out (optical) does work for both gaming and movies.
YES - the HDMI can also be used for gaming and movies.
YES - Using either optical or HDMI, your games will play in real digital surround with subwoofer effects and everything. However, to avoid having to pay Dolby or DTS fees, the games do not use their labels so your AV receiver will not say "Dolby Digital" or "DTS" when playing games, it will just say "PCM" but that is normal and it will sound exactly like digital surround should.
YES - Using either optical or HDMI, your movies/TV shows will play in DTS or Dolby Digital if the source file is in any of those formats. Your AV receiver WILL say "Dolby Digital" or "DTS" when playing movies/TV shows.

I don't think it's tied to the onboard video in the sense that if you're using it for sound you also have to use it for video output too. I believe you can connect directly to your display device with one cable (like from a GPU), and then connect the HDMI out from your mobo with a separate cable to an AV receiver and use that just for sound. I don't know why you'd want to do that, but I'm guessing you can do that in Windows 7 anyways. I'll test that theory tonight and let you know.

Not trying to be a jerk but I'd check vcore with a dmm to verify voltage.
