ALC1150 not loud enough.

Reading through the Audio part, with dual amp's and everything I can't understand this... I have all drivers installed, tried disabling a few and still my phone can play louder sound.

Is this for real, or do I have issues with this board? I thought finally onboard soundcards would mean something...

What's your signal path? What are you driving?

Just the Windows audio thing, I did open the realtek driver and it said volume was 100% aswell. No other options to turn it up.

Well it's something software side. Maybe use loudness equalization from sound properties if enhancements for the 1150 are there, or there may be a setting in the msi bundled software designed for headsets. I guess double check that the audio software is set to 44.1kHz and then so is Windows playback devices settings.

I also have massive mouse lags, specially in Windows 7... And now none of my usbs reads my usb drive to install drivers.... But yet when I go into bios to flash, it works.

Also my keyboard/mouse works but as i said, it's lagging. CPU temperatures are pretty good, 26 idle, I tried all the RAM positions and plugging one at a time, no change.

What is this board... Literally unplayable mouse movement, it got fixed abit in Windows 10 but it was still noticeable. Any suggestions?

Loudness equalization made it worse, but I managed to get a bit louder sound by installing windows 7 and not installing any drivers, somehow win7 managed to get the sound to work. Now I get the headphone icon instead of speakers and it plays a bit louder. I'll try to install the drivers.

edit: nevermind, drivers can't be installed at all on win7 apparently... even though i made sure i downloaded the one under win7 64 and used the CD aswell.. both failed.

Even bigger problem is how incredibly bad the mouse feels. At first it was literally uncontrollable with like a second delay after each movement, I got it to playable state by installing some driver from the CD, but it's still noticeable a little... and it's very annoying. Literally all usbs behaves just as bad, even the 2.0.

I feel like giving up.

Curious if you installed windows in UEFI mode or legacy?

The mouse thing indicates some issues with I/O.

You said you'd flashed the motherboard BIOS...

Is the OS installed on an HDD?

Can you try a different Bios revision?

Is the mouse lag only in windows or does it also do this while in BIOS?

I tried an old bios, the mouse nor keyboard didn't work at all in the windows installation process when I had the old BIOS.

OS is installed on a SSD, but I bought a samsung 850 evo, should be arriving tomorrow where I'm gonna remove all my drives and run it alone as a primary drive and see if it helps with anything. I don't know what I/O is. Also I installed in legacy.

CPU can't have anything to do with this right? my idle temp is 25-30C and fps is fine ingame.. no crashes or anything. Just out of curiousity.. the whole thing just feels like heavy input lag, like something is not performing strong enough and it's affecting the mouse kind of thing.

Although it was VERY, VERY disgusting at the start of the installation with a whole second delay after each swipe, and some other installation processes the cursor would completely spas out, like i can't control it, it just flies around at its own? then when I install windows, preferably windows 10 and install drivers, things get to normal state, but again, as stated, still feeling the input lag.

How do I install in UEFI? I only have windows 7 on a usb drive.. I'm not even sure if the installation is going to work tomorrow on the drive without doing it through windows... the few times I've tried it keeps telling me there is no drive plugged in, when my USB is in fact plugged in... and it even loaded the windows setup menu. then tells me there is no drive..
