I believe it is but have no definitive proof , that said , it behaves similarly on Linux to how it does on windows .Any news from GB acknowledging the rear audio port issue?
Nothing I can do is able to fix it unless I completely shut the pc off and turn the PSU switch off and then back on.
This is totally unacceptable for a motherboard which is not entry level and claims to be "high end"... it got paid like one, that I know for sure.
I had cheaper Asus and MSI motherboards in the past and never had similar issues, which makes this even more baffling.
Do we know if is it hardware related?
At this stage I have pulled the board out and put an Asus Crosshair vii Hero in . A pretty expensive solution though .
