AWBboxAn update for those still watching, I had contacted EVGA support about this and although they couldn't offer any advice they said they'd get a product manager in touch with me, unfortunately that was the last I heard. I have since kicked my STX to the kerb and bought an STX II, which I am happy to report works perfectly first time!
karlfullerI've just got this EVGA X99 Classified motherboard aswell and can tell you its still on going ,Nothing as changed I can not get my stx to work with it other than sleep and waking it up but this is not an ideal way to do it .. I've also been talking to support by ticket and email ,They act as if they don't know there is a problem with this ,I was reading the other guys post here where he said that asus has already fixed this problem with a bios then i see he had evga x99 so was wondering how he would know that Asus has in fact fix this problem because i went and look on there site checking the bios updates and there was nothing regarding a fix that i could see ? I knew i shoulda went to asus x99 if this is the case .. windows 10 = no sound card working = time to RMAwindows 8 = no sound card working = time to RMA windows 8.1 - no sound card working = time to RMA Now i remember why i sent the last motherboard back two years ago because evga have worst support team on earth clueless ..Plus Asus as all ready fix this problem with a new bios and there are windows 10 diver all ready day one unlike this motherboard ,Dont see why i should go sell my sound card to get a new one that cost £180 pounds when i all ready have a great sound card .
EVGATech_DaveBHello all, please check the newest BIOS updates I just posted today. Our testing was positive with the Xonar, and we are hoping this resolves the issue. Please let us know how this is going either way
KenjikenEVGATech_DaveBHello all, please check the newest BIOS updates I just posted today. Our testing was positive with the Xonar, and we are hoping this resolves the issue. Please let us know how this is going either wayI've tried the newest bios and it still has not corrected the issue. Audio still doesn't work with the ASUS Essence STX with UNI Xonar drivers on Windows 10 x64. The old workaround of putting the computer to sleep mode and then wake it up still works. I don't know what to do since I have less than two weeks in Amazon's return policy and I do not want be stuck with this issue. What I've tried:-clearing bios to defaults before and after flashing bios-set the pci-e to gen2-uninstalled and reinstalled uni xonar drivers-moving soundcard to a different pci-e slot And none of the above worked.
