In the meantime, would you mind recommending the engineers download the PAX driver and do a Diff-Compare against the RC2 drive you have on the website?

They can look at the changes the PAX author has made and deduce from that if something he did could fix a potential bug.

Perhaps, but they need to know what the bug is (be able to repro it) before they can deduce what may have fixed it.

I have no loud distorted sound issues so far but I have noticed sound lost after screensaver/sleep. This only occurs when the soundblaster program is set to speaker mode. If I leave it at headphone mode, it is fine after sleep/screensaver. I suspect this is a program/driver issue. I wonder if you can reproduce this problem?

Using PAX Driver and running latest F7 bios. Win 10 64 bit

EDIT: Sound lost on every startup if using speaker mode fixed by toggling headphone and speaker

I understand that to an extend but there are also other issues here

I doubt anyone is really willing to send you their motherboard and spend time taking apart their computer, not to mention not having a computer, for many weeks or even months. Especially if their issue is fixed by not using creative software or using the PAX driver, they are not really going to be willing to give up a motherboard whose issue has been 'fixed' and risk getting a different motherboard back that possibly has some other issues.

I think if you really want the motherboards of people who have this problem, you will have to ship them a new one first and then get their old one back. I know that for me, that is the only way I would consider it.

However, in the meantime, your engineers could take a look at the changes the PAX driver introduced versus the RC2 driver on the website. By logical deduction, it would be relatively easy to see and infer from the changes what the driver could've done that could've fixed the issue. Maybe it increased default buffer size, or disabled dithering by default or some other change. If they agree that the changes don't create any new issues, then they could release a beta driver with these changes incorporated and release it for testing. If people who had the issue report it as being fixed with this beta driver, you now have a proper release to publish.

X99-Gaming G1 Wifi owner here.
Also have this bizarre and awful issue with the audio going suddenly hellish and ultra loud to the point it can damage my headphones.

Not sure what your setup is, but using the PAX driver seemed to fix it for me on my z170 gaming 7

Hey all, I am having the same problems as a lot of people here, brand new z170 G1 Gaming 7 and the sound is a mess, MIC issues also where the voice comes out metallic sounding.
Wish I had looked closer to the sound chip on this board, I have never had any luck with Creative products..

First thing to do is make sure your running the F7 bios seemed to help. Then remove any creative stuff you have installed. Get the pax driver here

http://www.hardwareheaven.com/community/threads/gigabyte-z170-recon3d-drivers-help.233458/

And that should help greatly. Also many people have had success turning off all the enhancements in the sound blaster software. We know it's a driver issue as windows 8.1 and 7 have no issues

Hope that helps

I've been running the PAX driver for well over a month now. Haven't had any sound issues since I installed them.

Thanks guys, I had the PAX drivers in but didn't seem to work, so I did take out anything sound and mic related and not it does seem to work, mic is also working fine..
It is such a shame that you spend all this money on a product and you get zero effort by the manufacturer or third parties to fix the problem..I expert that out of creative but I didn't expect it from Gigabyte..
Thanks for the help guys, much appreciated!

No more sound issues for me, but my mic still gets all distorted,wondering if I should buy a sound card.
