Weird, I have the same motherboard but I don't have the same experience.
Are using native windows 8 mode or using CSM ?
Are you talking about in the BIOS? There is a setting in the BIOS that ask if you are using windows 8 and I selected it, I didn't change any fo the default values because I was undure what all they did and I figured the default would just work....
The operating system is Windows 8.1 Enterprise (n edition).
How is your experience differing from mine? Are you still experiencing the sound stutters? Are you experiencing the wierd frame rates that others are talking about?
I purchased my cards March 8th from NewEgg and I'm still in my 30 day window. If these cards wind up being buggy they're going back... I still have to test my games in eyefinity and I have a bunch of games to test...
One thing I did notice though, when watching a DVD or BluRay, the sound is a little off. Not the stuttering, but it sound like I turned "reverberation" up just a tad......
Also, one more thing to mention seeing as how you have the same setup, when I did my install, at first the sound wasn't working... Everything looked like it was installed, all the volume indicators appeared as if they were playing sound, but I wasn't hearing anything.... So, I figured I'd try reinstalling the drivers, well, when I uninstalled the drivers and rebooted, my PC installed Microsoft HD audio drivers on it's own and they appear to work just fine.
BTW, I am getting true stutter free HD 7.1 audio with this MS driver.
