ASUS North America - ASUS Z170 Motherboards Q&A Thread - Page 137

post #1361 of 5770
Hi all,

FINALLY got my hands on a 6700K after a long wait and am really liking my new setup with the VIII Hero. I came from a Q9550 so a huge jump for me. The only disappointment I have had is that I find that this new board has a lot more white noise on the headphone jacks than my old P5Q-E. I have tried tweaking the equalizer but whenever there is a quiet part of a movie/game I can really hear a light hiss. Anyone else experience this? Thanks!

Okay, thanks.

You can't equalize out hiss smile.gif You could try turning on VRM spread spectrum. Best solution is to go with USB DAC

@Raja: Have you ever tested any local ASUS-support anonymously? I mean, the people here are most of the time not for fun at this place. I contacted several addresses from ASUS directly , that I've could find out, and filled out the forms you have for assistance, which are for themselves buggily programmed. The answer (for adaptive voltage not working after standby) was following standard answer which consisted of: The right procedure in installing Windows and drivers, and making sure that the UEFI is up to date. Frustrating at least for the help searching admin...

If answers like this were a standard for ASUS, bombing this forum asking for help from all over the world is absolutely understandable. I know, Raja, you do a good-job in answering and calming down the masses, you are the impersonation of competent answers from ASUS. YMMV if you have the right support address, but for my part, I never succeeded.

If you look at ASUS board at https://vip.asus.com/forum you can clearly see, how many people get (or not!) answers for questions the need. The board isn't even frequented anymore cause people don't expect anything from there...

ASUS has a great reputation for mainboards, because things were mostly working right out of the box. Things are gettings sometimes complicated with new chipsets, but I have ASUS in good memory in doing things better than the competition. This time support is needed and questions needed to be answered. You are the only official voice from ASUS, stating that fixes have been found and are being worked on. Correct me, if you have other sources, people would find competent help, just post them here smile.gif

So, you are an exception. It took some time for the people to find out about you and the forum. Please raise your voice from making ASUS support better globally, I am sure many people share my opinion from all over the word! If ASUS makes its homework, life would not be only easier for you wink.gif

But still thanks, and keep on doing what your doing!

Don

Hello

The ASUS VIP forum is user to user only. There are no ASUS representatives at that forum. If you are not satisfied with the level of support for your region email ASUS directly through the ASUS global site citing your concerns.

warning: new bios 1003 has a very serious problem with adaptive mode on z170 deluxe. basically, it doesn't work. set it to 1.328 and i'm seeing spikes to 1.507, 1.480, etc. It's out of control and i have no idea what's causing it. flashed back to 0901 and everything is working properly again

I noticed other issues with it. S3 sleep got messed up somehow. I went back to 901 and sleep worked again somewhat. FastBoot s4 sleep in Win10 is still a disaster but I think that's just a conflict with Realtek and Nvidea drivers. Hard to believe there are still issues with sleep after 20 years but there you go. Otherwise the system seems fine on 901. 503 is still my favorite. Boot times are faster on 901 too I think.

Check that the auto play settings are properly configured.

Solved!

Tried the spread spectrum setting and messed around with different drivers but still same sound. It is relatively subtle but I think it is most likely a case of more noise being introduced when they increased the output. Thanks for your response!
