Rampage III Formula Questions

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey there, this is my 2nd 1366 board and so far im happy with it. I have some trouble with minor stuff tho, i hope somebody will have an opinion.

First of all, my bios-post sometimes gets stuck while checking for the dvd-rw's sata port. I've tried changing the sata port, didn't help. Dvd-rw works just fine i installed windows from it. Faulty mobo or faulty dvd-rw ? Keep in mind that when post checks for other sata ports, it passes for ssd and hdds. This happens hundredth percent randomly and when i re-run the post, it passes. Its a simple solution, yet very annoying when overclocking and you have to boot up 20 times. I will also try with an another dvd-rw, but i seriously don't think anything is wrong with it. Maybe somehow it conflicts with the raid0 ?


2nd question is, with my old mobo i was able to use my sound blaster audigy card for my speakers and my onboard soundcard for the microphone. When i try to do the same on my RIIIF, i cant hear anything from speakers, it forces me to connect the speaker's cable to onboard's jack-in.

3rd question, On-board card's microphone volume is too low. It's at %100 and 30dB boost. I still have to scream for others to be able to hear me. And yes, microphone is properly working on my old pc and other 1366 mobo.

Because of these sound issues, im considering getting a new sound card on monday, so i can use it for microphone + speakers.

Sorry if my post is hard to read, and will appreciate any helpful answer.

Well I put an xfi exstreme gamer in with no problems. Windows loaded good drivers but I got SB latest and am doing fine. Perhaps use drive sweeper and start over ,see if that helps.Make sure your onboard is off in bios.

The 0505 bios update should be fine ,but my tempt do read a little higher. I dont believe that is a big issue.

Mine reads in windows everything as a drive,USB,printer,dvdrom. When posting my SSD is so fast I see the screen about the bat of an eye. No probs there.
