I feel like i remember reading somewhere about 290x/AMD drivers having conflicts with the Realtek drivers. Don't remember what thread(s) or forum, somewhere along my travels tho lol.
I haven't gotten any black screens while i've been around, even tho it seems like one happened while i was sleeping. I've had a bunch of system freezes with audio skip-loop tho after i installed the drivers, also screen tearing. This isn't the black screen issue, and it's gotta be a driver problem since the card was running great on the Extreme6. The Extreme6 used Realtek drivers too, the BE has better ROG/Realtek software to go along with it. Can't figure why there was no conflicts with Realtek on the Extreme 6 other than maybe the order i installed everything. I installed the GPU drivers last, maybe i shoulda installed em first
Also i've only installed all the drivers off the mobo support cd. Haven't updated em from the website yet.
