Idk if its just my board, my power source or my PSU but if the expectation is that it should be dead silent then I probably lucked out on a defective board.
You have the hissing on mute? Can you try this, unplug your speakers and just leave the speaker cable lying on the table, see if you still get the hissing noise lol. If the board had EMI shielding issues then everyone in this thread would complain about it if a cell phone sending an SMS can cause it to happen and it happens on mute lol, most likely your speakers in this case.
I don't ujderstnd why everyone thinks themotherboardis to blame for every issuethey encounter.

Theres been looots of news all over internet about b85/h87 being able to overclock and almost all manufacturers have unlocked bios for K haswell chips.BUT no one has reviewed any of the b85/h87 unlock stuff i want to pair G1 Sniper B5 with 4670k the board is really cheap and i want the extra onboard audio thing also love the colors
I really want a moderate OC i do not want in any way shape or form high overclock,my goal is 4.2-4.4 does anyone have information if i can overclock on this awesome board?If i can ill be joining the club in a week or two
Sorry if this thread was for existing owners only.
Baby sniper is fine for that, If you read a guide and learn for OC haswell then no issue. Also IMO don't fall for that H87/B85 crap, IMO don't mess with a board that was never designed for OC to OC.

CPU-Z shows me 4,5 Ghz for a few seconds. Then it goes down to 31x or 34x under heavy load.
Everything works fine with the sniper m5, but when it comes to overclocking its a big fail at the moment. I hope for a final bios in the next few weeks or perhaps month.
shore. LOL I think perhaps user error maybe?
