Im still confident that I will try for it anyway and if I run into any problems they will be fixable, or rma that **** tongue.gif.

Anyway Im sending my audio through coaxial spdif(audigy 2) to my receiver atm. I want to use the optical connection on the hero motherboard and is this able to give my receiver dts and dolby digital for it to decode? I dont want the motherboard to decode anything just pass it to the reciever. I dont think this would be an issue but this quote made me second guess my gut feeling.
I think I saw somewhere that you can activate something in the soundsettings to send dts and dolby through the optical spdif. Is this correct?

You cannot but I believe hacked realtek drivers might allow it.

I use stock and increated Core Ratio to 40 from 39 and it goes to 1.2v max at 4.0GHz. I'm not even sure how good that is, but my temps are like 50C while playing BF4 online with 64 players.

It might be mid week before I can. I'm switching to the EVGA x79 dark and 3930k tomorrow for my main build.

Gotcha thanks.

EDIT:

All I would like is for my audio to not start up with windows at 100% volume... when using Optical Audio... Any fix for this?

yes, it's somewhere in the realtek software and also in the Windows sound settings

edit: I just use the software from Asus

2 x 8GB G.Skill Trident X 2400
Cooler Master V1000
Samsung Evo 750GB

Everything else is getting reused from my current comp.

I had 46 multiplier / 46 cache ration on BIOS 0804..... BIOS upgrade to 1102 killed it..... now only 46/43 as temps were 7C higher and Vcore went from 1.42 to 1.50 under adaptive control on new BIOS at same settings

Suggest you watch the videos on Youtube and Z87 OC thread on RoG forums to start

does it block a PCIe slot on this board. EK is unclear; they say it does on the gene board but don't say anything about this one and looking at it, it doesn't seem possible for it to NOT block a slot.

If ya can get the block in, ya still have the issue of getting the tubing routed .... many who have bought it, wind up just using the upper portion and not installing the SB block..... given the cost of the EK Block for the Hero, the Maximus VI Formula which has additional features and already had a block installed is a very attractive alternative

I had the exact same experience with the M6F..... Asus isn't answering any inquiries.

Anyone else getting a low electrical buzz from the onboard audio when using the Optical audio port and DTS 5.1?

EDIT:

I got so fed up with the onboard audio blasting @ 100% volume each boot, and the weird windows sound distortions that I uninstalled the driver and shut down to pop in my old Sound Blaster Z card... however for one reason or another my system now no longer powers on!!!

I have the power and reset lights on the board lit, and I've tried the jumper method to clear the bios... but it doesn't power. How can this be and what do you recommend I try to fix?!

Very bizarre issue...

EDIT 2:

Got it working again after playing with the jumper for about 5 straight minutes... strange...

re-installing my soundblaster now... Shame I couldn't get the onboard working properly... Maybe the next driver will be better.

Got a question for you fellaz. A few months back I had an erroneous stand off that I didn't remove which was rubbing behind the pcix slot and eventually killed one of my cards. Took about 1 month and the video card was literally dead. Do you think there might be some permanent damage to the slot? Since removing the extra standoff, I haven't had any issues. Just worried that I may be slowing degrading my vid card. Volts look fine. Am I crazy? lol
